PNC/R encourages self reflection, forgiveness in Easter message

See the full statement from the PNC/R below:

 

The People’s National Congress Reform wishes all Guyanese a happy Easter. Let us all make a greater effort to engage in self-reflection, to share love, to spread joy, and to offer forgiveness for the greater national good and our shared destiny. May this glorious season remind us of God’s love for us and our responsibility to show compassion and support for one another.

Easter is one of the most important seasons of the Christian faith – starting from Palm Sunday, then Good Friday, and finally Easter Sunday.

Palm Sunday reminds us of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Good Friday reminds us of His brutal treatment, culminating in crucifixion. Easter Sunday reminds us of Jesus rising from the dead. Each of the Christian gospels explains the purpose for which Jesus came into the world. In John 3:16, Jesus himself tells of God’s love and concern for mankind. Not only does God say He loves us but He has demonstrated that love by sending Jesus with the express purpose of sacrificing His life so that mankind might be redeemed.

It is the Christian’s belief that the blood of Christ shed on a cross at a place called Calvary is the full price for man’s redemption. Christians also believe that beyond the suffering and the horrors of crucifixion they can still rejoice in the glory of His resurrection and His triumph over the grave. Let us be reminded, therefore, that when circumstances seem at their worst, there is still reason for hope.

During this Easter, let us reflect on the full meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice and God’s love for us. Let us recommit our responsibilities to our fellow humankind.

Happy Easter and God bless our nation.
