Rejoice! Christ Has Risen
Happy Easter to all Christians living in Pakistan and abroad.
He is not here; He has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where He lay. (Matthew 28:6)
The doctrine of the resurrection is an essential of the faith. All of Christianity depends on the truth of this doctrine. But it is more than a doctrine—it is wonderful good news, news that should fill us with joy, hope, confidence, excitement and celebration!
Jesus Christ continues to lead and guide the church He built. He remains actively involved in His people so that we might become more like Him, growing in Him until we are fully conformed to His image. The church depends on the risen Christ. Our salvation depends on the risen Christ. All our faith depends on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Jesus’ resurrection was a time of triumph, of victory, of joy, worship and celebration. It was a demonstration of the hope that all Christians have of conquering death, of becoming imperishable, of rising to glory. It expresses faith, hope and joy. It is no surprise that Christians around the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
On the occasion of Easter, we present to all our great congratulations, praying to God to recurrent this feast on everyone with serenity and blessings.On this very special occasion we shouldn’t forget our community and should help to those who are needy across Pakistan.
We pay thanks and gratitude to the Government of Pakistan for granting Easter Monday holiday for Christians living in Pakistan and we pray to the Lord Jesus Christ for peaceful events across the country.
