As Christians celebrate the arrest, trial, crucifixion, burial and resurrection of  Jesus Christ, the Senior Pastor of House of Purpose Ministry U/Sunday Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Apostle Yakubu Yusuf, has urged Nigerians to continue to praise and worship God despite any hardship they may be experiencing.

The Clergy who spoke during the Easter  Sunday  Celebration and the Bethel Experience praise worship of the Church yesterday said apart from prayers, praises are another effective way of communicating with God and getting His attention to rescue Nigerians from whatever situation they found themselves.

Speaking in the sermon titled ” Mysteries of He is Risen” he said that Easter is a period of remembrance that death is not the end of all things for Christians.

The cleric, who drew inspiration from the book of Luke Chapter 24 verses 1-12  said, “Easter is the remembrance/celebration of the events leading to the arrest, trial, crucifixion, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Apostle Yakubu stressed that It is an important period for Christians because it reminds them that somebody died so that others may live.

“This also calls our attention to the fact that we can be betrayed by those who are close to us. This period reminds us that our prayers are answered when God does His will in our lives, and not when we receive what we ask for.”

He therefore urged Nigerians not to be deterred by the current economic recession being experienced in the country but to commit total reliance on the faithfulness of God through fervent praises and prayers.

If you know and trust the faithfulness of God, then you will enjoy rest from every battle of life. You must understand the faithfulness of God,” He said.

Admonishing people to love one another, the Apostle Yakubu said, “I will advise Nigerians that in this season and beyond, they should love one another as Christ loved us and gave his life for us.

“The lack of love today is the cause of religious intolerance, which in turn leads to violence and insurgency.

” Nigerians need to sacrifice whatever is within them to pursue peace just as Jesus offered his life to reconcile humankind to God. It is in the atmosphere of peace that we can have progress as a nation,” he said.
