Easter – a time of reflection and remembrance

EASTER is a time to revisit not only the death and resurrection of Jesus, but most importantly the reason He sacrificed His life for all humanity.
As Fijians across the country celebrate Easter this weekend, president of the Methodist Church the Rev Dr Epineri Vakadewavosa believes this is a time of reflection and remembrance.
“This year on the 21st of April the Methodist Church welcomes Easter with the theme ‘Christ has completed all the work for our salvation’. When we reflect on this theme, we learn that the main factor, the key component of this process is love,” Mr Vakadewavosa said.
He said this same message of love had a very special and significant place in the meaning of Easter.
“Easter reminds not only Christians but all humanity of God’s inclusive and unconditional love. The love that is not only spoken, but the love that is put into action as is exampled in John 3:16,” he added.
“When God says He loves the world, it means that He loves and cares about humanity and also His creations. His action clearly presents His commitment to the cause.”
