… We Must Love And Sacrifice Like Christ

Published

on


As Christians around the World celebrate Easter, Senator Stella Oduah has called on all Nigerians to emulate the virtues of love and sacrifice which Jesus Christ exhibited by dying on the cross.

In an Easter message personally signed by her, the lawmaker, who represents Anambra North in the National Assembly, said that with love, Nigeria could surmount all its challenges.

Her words: “We must learn to love like Christ loved and we must sacrifice in the way Christ has exemplified for us.

“If we love one another, the wanton killing, clashes, kidnapping theft and all other vices that bedevil our society, would not exist.

“With love and sacrifice including empathy, understanding, tolerance and coexistence, we would indeed be united if we love one another.

“Just as Christ taught us and as it is taught in Islam and many other religions, love is a virtue which conquers all, where there is love all other good virtues go along with it”.

The former Aviation Minister said that Nigerians must also learn to give in helping the poor and the needy around them and avoid indulging in lavish celebrations while their neighbours go hungry.

The former Minister of Aviation stressed that Easter is a good time

for sober reflection, a time for moral re-evaluation and a time to

retrace one’s steps.

“We must see the Easter as not just a time to celebrate the

resurrection of Christ but a time to soberly reflect on the

significance of his suffering, death and resurrection and how well we

are emulating the virtues he taught.

“For parents, it is a time to reflect on how well you have brought up

your children. The family still holds the key to bringing up good

Nigerians and therefore, parents must raise their children up in the

right way so that we can have good Nigerians.

“I therefore wish every Nigerian Christian and friends a wonderful

Easter celebration,” she added.
