We have now come to the end of lent. As we enter Holy Week, I remind all of us of the significance of the crucifixion and death of Jesus. It is the acceptance of Christ and his sacrifice for our sins that prepares us for eternal life.
As we acknowledge and accept his sacrifice, may we be obedient to God’s will. May we as God’s people, humble ourselves and pray, and seek God’s face. May our people turn from wickedness and evil and crime. If we all do this, we can be assured that God will hear us from heaven, and that he will forgive our sins and heal our land. 2 Chron. 7:14
Let us pray for God’s protection during this Easter season, and may we be courteous and mindful of each other as we travel the busy streets and abroad.
Happy Easter and may God bless you all!
