"So, whatever is dead in your life by the power of the risen Christ shall come alive and you shall have new experiences".
On this day, decorated eggs - known as Easter eggs are gifted to friends and family members. "Even in recession, we believe as a party that there are opportunities that we believe the ever resilient Nigerian people can explore and exploit to better their lot". It's the most important religious celebration in the Christian faith.
The festival of Easter celebrates Christ's resurrection.
Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena says the universality of love as celebrated by Christians during Easter continues to be the cardinal factor for the world's existence.
I love Easter because usually it is a lovely spring day with all the promise of warm days ahead after having made it through the winter and all the snow.
CHRISTIANS look forward to Easter Sunday - the day that Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead as he promised his believers.
Nobody knows who pinned it to the wood of the cross, it was eventually taken down, but I wish it had remained, for the answer to the question is at the heart of the resurrection of Christ from the dead.
"For some people, Easter is just a holiday that celebrates the end of winter and the beginning of spring", Bell said.
Churches in the Western Hemisphere commemorate Easter on the first Sunday after the first full moon of the vernal equinox, which is March 21.
For both Western and Orthodox churches, Easter's date changes from year to year.
The Christians will attend prayers and special ceremonies to mark Easter, the culmination of the 40-day Lent, a time of fasting, giving alms, repenting and spiritual renewal.
I really love Easter because of its significance - the victory of life over death, the hope the cross gives us as it reminds us of the dark days of Good Friday and of Saturday when Christ was in the tomb.
Further, to quote St. Paul again, if Easter is a hoax, then the concept of a God who forgives sin is unfounded. God commanded the Jews to remember this time each year for all time.
Following Easter Sunday, the season of Easter begins and lasts for seven weeks, ending with Pentecost, Ascension Day.
The Bible tells us that on Good Friday, Christ was crucified on a cross, tortured until he died. It's common for Christians to greet each other by saying "Christ has risen" in the say way they'd say "Merry Christmas".
