1. Easter 2017: The feast of Easter is the final revelation of who Jesus is. No human power could stand against the power of God. We believe in such a God who is ever powerful and present to His people. We may not be able to see that power always with our physical eyes. But one who is strong spiritually can experience that power. By his resurrection “Jesus reveals himself as light of the world”. Each of us is blind from birth, in that, “we were created to know God, but because of sin we are like the blind, we need a new light, that of faith, that Jesus has given us.”
"Christ is hope and comfort to the Christian communities.” This is the hope we need to live by especially in our families each day of our life. In families we do encounter serious challenges of various sorts. Let us conquer everything by the power of the risen Lord. Let this hope of the risen Christ take us ever forward.
I wish each of you many blessings of a Happy Easter.
