A message of joy was echoed in many parishes on Sunday across the country.
“Because of Christ, we can walk in freedom and power every day,” said Rev. Feata Perelini of the Congregational Christian Church at Lotofaga, Safata.
“The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in the life of every believer and it is something that we should never forget.
“Whatever we do, wherever we go, we must remember Him in all our ways.
“Because of what He did, we can have hope, purpose and victory today and every day.”
He went on to say that the death and resurrection of Jesus grants us the promise of an eternal life.
“Because He lives, we not only have hope for the future; we have the ability walk with Him today.
“Today we celebrate the day that the Son of God won the victory for every man!
“When we really belong to the Lord and wander off the path He has assigned us, we will not go away from Him forever.
“We must celebrate, and thank God for the greatest gift ever through His son, Jesus Christ.
“May our Heavenly Father continue to bless us all and work ahead for this year, 2017!”
