What does Easter mean to you?
We asked three unsponsored African Vision of Hope students the same question.
Easter is the whole period of Jesus Christ’s suffering. The way He suffered to the day He was crucified and died. He was buried, and on the third day He rose again. After He rose, it simply shows that Christ Jesus, God Himself, loved me very much. For Him to send His only begotten son shows that He loves me. His love is everlasting. Massive, massive love. So, Easter is very important to me to see that God loved me so much that he even sent his only begotten son to die for me. And I respect that. The most important day of my life to see that God himself sent His son to die for me. Specifically me, for my sins. And I respect it, and I am humbled by it.
I would love to talk about Easter. Easter is a day, a period that Jesus Christ suffered and died for our sins and rose again. This is Important to me because God gave me an undeserving love and sent His only begotten son to die for me on the cross of Calvary. He suffered, He was whipped, He was denied because of me and I really appreciate and am humbled by His love.
From what I understand from the term Easter is the period from which Jesus Christ died to the time He rose. This shows how God loves me so much because He sent His one and only begotten son to come and die for my sins. For that I really have to appreciate God, but how do I appreciate God? By doing what’s good. By doing what’s right. By making sure that I follow each and every step that Jesus Christ took. For that, I will celebrate this day.
