Easter message

During this Easter season, as we gather with friends and family let our hearts be full of gratitude as we remember the ultimate sacrifice and the triumphant resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We must make this Easter a time of reflection, renewal, and rejoicing, for it marks the moment when our greatest fear, death itself was vanquished, giving us eternal hope and life.

As we celebrate this sacred day, let us also remember the values that have sculpted our great nation. America was founded on the principles of freedom, justice, and the pursuit of happiness. This mirrors the spiritual liberty we’ve been afforded through Christ’s sacrifice. Just as Jesus rose from the grave, our nation, too, has time and time again risen from trials and tribulations, stronger and more united in purpose. As dark as today’s world appears Christ Jesus can once again lead us into the light.

In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul writes to the Corinthians, “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ,” (1 Corinthians 15:57). This verse not only celebrates the victory over death and sin through Christ but also serves as a reminder of the victories we can achieve as individuals and as a nation when we place our trust in Him. It is through our faith that we find strength, through our struggles that we gain wisdom, and through our unity that we achieve greatness.

We also have a duty to stand with God’s chosen people, the Jews. Our stance is rooted in the knowledge that Israel represents a beacon of democracy and freedom in the Middle East. Its people’s resilience in the face of adversity is a testament to the unbreakable human spirit, a quality we celebrate this, Easter. Just as Christ’s resurrection offers us hope for eternal life, we stand in solidarity with Israel, hoping for peace and security for all its citizens and the entire middle east.

This Easter, let us commit to praying for peace in Israel and the entire world. May the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ inspire us to uphold the values of freedom, justice, and divine grace. Let us remember the powerful message of Easter — that love conquers all, and with faith, we can overcome even the greatest challenges.

In the unwavering light of our Savior’s promise, we, as Christians, hold fast to an assurance that transcends the bounds of this earthly realm—an assurance of eternal life. The Gospel of John speaks directly to our hearts, declaring, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life,” (John 3:16). This cornerstone of our faith not only affirms the depth of God’s love for us but also cements our hope in the promise of eternity with Him.

As we come together with family and friends, let us cherish these moments of joy and fellowship, keeping in mind the profound significance of Easter. It is a time of new beginnings, a reminder that no matter the darkness we face, the light of Christ will always prevail
