Easter: There’s hope, victory for Nigeria – Anglican bishop, Aladekugbe


The Bishop of Ibadan-North Anglican Diocese, Rt. Rev. Williams Aladekugbe says there’s hope and victory for Nigeria and the whole world.

Aladekugbe made the comment in his Easter message on Saturday in Ibadan.

He mentioned to start with hope is everlasting life for all who imagine in Jesus Christ.

“The world is now ravaged by materialism, violence, corruption, and faithlessness, although we’re within the age of a revolutionary change.

“The finger of Christ is seen in every single place and our hope of redemption is just not misplaced.

“Check out our nation, Nigeria. Issues look like disintegrating each day.

“Life is grossly unsure; loss of life comes so simply by way of the arms of assassins and kidnappers with out regret; but, Christ says by way of His resurrection, there’s hope for many who imagine in Him,” the cleric mentioned.

In line with him, Nigeria can be stronger however solely God would decide how it will bounce again.

“That is the explanation we should not nurture the hope that’s unsure; moderately, we have to have Walter Raleigh’s sort of Hope – ‘From this earth, this grave, the mud, my God shall increase me up’.

“Your pleasure at Easter is just not that you’re saved alone, however it’s that Christ is the hope of the world.

“Your main project is now to go, inform the story, act the story, stay with the story,” he mentioned.

The cleric mentioned one of many classes of Easter is that Jesus is a life-charger.

Aladekugbe pressured that Christ’s resurrection meant and signified vindication of righteousness.

“Jesus was harmless of all fees, He was crucified, however God raised Him to life in an effort to be vindicated.

“Easter signifies the defeat of loss of life; the spirit of the grave was silenced; fact could be suppressed however can’t be killed.

“If you end up persecuted due to fact, be certain, like Jesus, that you’ll triumph. All believers shall be raised to life everlasting by God due to Christ’s resurrection as said within the Bible.

“We should due to this fact be comfortable that He lives, and since He lives, we have now the hope of tomorrow for our nation, for the world, and our largest hope is for eternity,” the Bishop mentioned.
