The minister in charge of Unity Baptist church, Unity road, Rev Dr. Reuben Idowu Ibitoye says Easter is an important festival in Christendom as it celebrates the events on which the Christian faith stands.

Speaking with News Hub Mag! Rev. Ibitoye who is also the Kwara state Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) said, “The Easter season reminds us that Christ has won the victory for us all. It is a special time for us to remember the redemptive work of Christ on the cross.

“Although, this year’s celebration is low keyed it does not diminish the strength of our conviction and the truth that Christ who died once for us has redeemed us from all forms of sickness including this coronavirus.   

“As Christian we have enormous reasons to celebrate because the resurrection of Christ granted every Christian victory over all storms of life. After His resurrection, Jesus Himself declared in Matt. 28:18 that ‘all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me’. Jesus Christ has prevailed over COVID-19 through His resurrected authority.”

On why Christians should celebrate despite the lock-down he stated that, “Christians must celebrate because He that is living in us is greater than the one who is living in the world, 1 John 4:4. By the power of Christ’ resurrection all of us shall see the end of COVID-19 and we shall all celebrate together.”
