FROM VICAR'S DESK
Dearly Beloved in Christ
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
These days we are meditating on the Passion of Christ, his way to the cross, death and resurrection. His death on the cross for the resurrection and salvation of His precious creation is the basis or the foundation of the Christian faith. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundation stone on which the Christian Church is built.
Through the suffering, death and resurrection Jesus broke the power of sin over humans and was able to reconcile him to God Almighty. Through the resurrection, Jesus established a new relationship with God the Father. His sonship becomes unique and at the same time, our sonship with God is established. Ultimately belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ gives a new manner and meaning to human life and existence.
The mission of Jesus Christ is a fulfilment of the prophecy of the Old Testament and the hope of the people. In the mission of Jesus, God has entered history in His Kingly power to defeat the power of evil and death. At the Last Supper with his disciple, Jesus gave them a cup representing His blood over the covenant, which is poured out for many. The words of Jesus about His Blood of the Covenant implicitly claim that this promise of the new covenant in the Kingdom of God is about to be fulfilled through his own death.
We must understand that Jesus Christ is a Living Reality of the present than a historical man in the books. We must accept Jesus Christ as the Saviour in our life. Let’s bear this living Christ in our hearts and our lives. Let God help us and bless us. Wishing you all a blessed and meaningful Easter.
