Easter has been described as a season of sharing love, preaching peace and forgiveness; a time for Christians around the world are urged to make sacrifices for the good of their neighbors and larger society in reciprocating the love of Christ.
On the heels of above, the Eze -elect of Ogwuaga Abba Autonomous Community, Nwangele LGA, Imo State, an elder statesman and respected community leader, Nze Obinna Akwiwu (Oshimiri lll of Abba, Nze Nwachinaemere, Oshimiri Ukeje), has urged Christians around the world to learn from the exemplary life of Jesus; a life of love, sacrifices, reconcilation, forgiveness and peace during the Easter season.
Nze Akwiwu, Ohamadike ll of Ogwuaga Abba, stated this during his Easter message a copy which was made available to 4th Estate Reporters-Ng.
The royal father -designate harped on the necessity for Christians to ponder and reflect on the power of love that made Christ die for all, and to make such love a foundation for a peaceful society and selflessness a major factor in our relationships with others.
He however, ceased the opportunity the medium created to also preach love, peace and unity among brothers and sisters especially, in Ogwuaga Abba Autonomous Community, Nwangele LGA, where he hailed from.
Nze Obinna Akwiwu, a Peace Ambassador of International repute and first class Nze title holder from the famous Akwiwu Dynasty, it should be noted, has been deeply involved in numerous selfless community services having bequetted an ultra modern and state of the arts Ogwuaga Abba Magistrate Court, a legacy project and many others which have endeared him to his people. According to him, it is a better and refined way of making sacrifices and expressing love for fatherland and the good people of Ogwuaga Abba.
The Eze-elect, Nze Akwiwu, noted that “Sacrifice is the pillar of love, therefore as true Christians, we must be prepared to make sacrifices for the good of our neighbors and larger society. We can reciprocate the love of Christ by joining hands in Christ-like love to create a better society and country.”
“Let the season of Easter teach us to be more forgiving, tolerant, accommodating and compassionate in our relationship with one another.“
If we tenaciously follow the footsteps of Christ who gave his life for our sake, there is no challenge that we cannot surmount as a people and nation.
He therefore, urged Ndi Abba Ama-Ano, Ogwuaga Abba Community, Nwangele leadership and Imo people to let the Easter celebration be the renewal of their faith in God, a reminder of the love and compassion they owe one another, and a rededication of their lives to the service of others, the Eze-elect remarked while wishing all a fruitful Easter celebration.
