Anne Kennedy and James Wong a GAFCON IV

Anglican Bishop James Wong writes Easter is here and it means for believers is that “we serve a risen Saviour. The grave could not hold Christ; He defeated death. He paid the price for our sins with his own blood. And the consequences for us are huge.  Or if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.”

“Because Christ resurrected and lives, we will to live, both in this life and in the life to come. The message of Easter also tells us: You need not be afraid of anything -not life with all its insecurities, its conflicts, its uncertainties; you should not be afraid of even death itself. You do not need to fear anything – no fear.”

The archbishop added that “when your spirit is filled with the unshakable strength of God in the name of Jesus Christ, you get faith so deeply planted within you that when crises hit you, as they sometimes do suddenly, you automatically can face life courageously and not be dismayed and not be afraid.” 

He ended his message by saying “As you reflect on the message of Easter, remember: Easter is here. Be transformed. Be resurrected. Be not afraid! He is risen indeed. Alleluia!”
