Reflect on Jesus this Easter: PM

Main Stories

PRIME Minister James Marape, in his Easter message, said the Government will use the Covid-19 induced exposure of the country’s weak health sector to fix the health systems and infrastructures.
“I want to encourage everyone to reflect this Easter by looking at Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection to bring hope back that there is Eternal life to gain when we stay faithful Christians,” Marape said.
“For some of us, this Easter comes up with pains of death including Covid-19 induced deaths.
“While sickness and death is not pleasant, Easter, which points to the death of Jesus Christ, also tells of His resurrection that gives hope in the face of death.
“The amplifier for death is ringing aloud on planet earth with the Covid-19 and all other diseases which Jesus mentioned as signs of His second coming.
“Read Matthew 24 verse 8 which includes pestilences as a sign of His soon return. I ask you all to embrace the hope of life Easter points to us.
“Jesus died to restore humans to eternal life lost in Eden when Eve fell into sin with Satan’s deception.
“This same Satan is spinning the same deception that you will not die and is encouraging lawlessness.
“I ask our citizens to take these moments of the Covid-19 isolation time to re-think about your own life and your responsibilities to God, your family and your country.”
Marape said the Government was trying its best provide services during this challenging time.
“We also work on our long-term economic restructuring and other public service deliverables amid the present challenges,” he said.
“So have hope and be of good cheer.”
Meanwhile, Archbishop Cardinal Sir John Ribat in his Easter message said these days were challenging because people continue to face the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, which deprived them of doing business and attanding family and church gatherings.
“Many were affected and yet they were united with Christ, to overcome all these should be the source of our strength,” he said.
Sir John said everyone should remember that the Lord never abandoned those who trust Him in times of sufferings, doubt and uncertainty.
