“I am the resurrection and the Life. He who believes in me will Live, even though he dies.” John 11:25
What a Joy it is to know that more than 2000 years ago, Christ chose to die for us even when we did not deserve it. He died; because we needed it. He did not wait for us to ask of Him. He Freely offered Himself. It’s the same Love that God continues to show us through his son Jesus Christ. We know that we can trust him who knows us and who loves us beyond measure.
…is a time to reflect on how much we have been blessed, even when we do not deserve it. It’s a time to remember that Christ died so that we may live. 2Cor 5:14 says “for Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all and therefore all died. And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves but Him who died for them and was raised again.”
I hope in this Easter Season we will remember to extend this love to those around us.
But most of all I hope we remember that love is a free gift.
The World is slowly moving into an era of moral decadence. Turn on the evening news and you will be overwhelmed by what is happening around the world: corruption, scandals, HIV/AIDS prevalence on the rise, cases of child abuse/child sacrifices and other forms of abuse, early marriages,poverty, divorce, domestic violence, murder, the list is endless.
The World is in dire need of Revival and Redemption. We have a choice, we can choose to sit back and do nothing or we can actively seek to revive our countries, beginning with ourselves.
ROWAN is very strategic in the shaping of the kind of morals that can be the change agents in the communities.
It’s my prayer that we become active advocates for the change we want to see in our countries. This is the time to speak up against the evil in our times and to lead with courage. This is the time to do away with the evil habits in our midst even if it costs much. Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection reminds us that He does not condone sin and therefore His love should compel us to selflessly serve His people.
On behalf of ROWAN Uganda and myself, I would like to thank you for the commitment and passion that you have for ROWAN and AMAKA Family God bless you.
Happy Easter, my dear Brethrens.
