He is alive!

Tuesday 29 March 2016

“Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is risen.”

Easter is the commemoration of a unique event, unparalleled in history. Nothing like this has ever been heard before Christ or after Christ. Lazarus in the Gospel was raised by Christ from the dead, but he died again. Jesus Christ rose from the dead to die no more. He is risen from the world of dead, with unearthly splendour and glory. So it is a celebration of triumph of life over death, hope over despair, light over darkness, goodness over evil.

The resurrection of the Lord is the guarantee of our resurrection. Christ has given us the hope that we too shall rise like him to a new life of grace. This hope should encourage us to live a true and sincere Christian life. We should die to our sins; pride, hatred, selfishness, dishonesty and evil desires must not find any place in us anymore. To die with him means to rise with him for by dying he destroyed our death and by rising he restored our life.

Dear friends, we are people of Easter. We belong to the Risen Lord. 

May He grant you a most blessed and grace filled Easter. May the Risen Lord fill your hearts and homes with peace and joy.
