Pastor Azena greets Edo Christians ahead of Easter


Ahead of the Easter festivity, a senior pastor in charge of the southern region of a popular Pentecostal, the Omega Fire Ministry Worldwide, Pastor (Dr.) Azemhe Azena has admonished Christians to endeavor to be Christ-like in all their doings and to also model their life in such a way as to radiate love, peace, tolerance, and oneness.

Pastor Azena specifically noted that Christ exhibited these traits during His lifetime and ministry and ended up paying the ultimate price by sacrificing His life to atone for the sins of mankind

He made the admonition in his special Easter message to the Christian faithful to commemorate Good Friday which precedes the Easter celebration.

In the Easter message, released and signed by his Personal Assistant, mr Irowa Adolf, Pastor Azena averred that Good Friday is supposed to be seen as a day of introspection and repentance as well as the expression of gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice Jesus Christ made on the cross for the redemption of mankind.

He further added it is a time for the adherents to renew their faith in God and to also recommit themselves to acts of compassion and service to others.

He said, “As we reflect on the events of Good Friday, let us take the opportunity to consider the numerous challenges we face as a people and a country knowing also that Jesus suffered and died for us.

“We must be willing to make sacrifices as well and work in unison to build a progressive and prosperous state and country for ourselves and the unborn generations”.

Dr. Azena urged the Christians to use the occasion of Easter to reflect on the values of love, unity, and sacrifice which Christ Himself exemplified, adding we must learn to sink our differences and unite as a people to create a much better society and humanity
