Stephen Omokoba gave the admonitions on Sunday in their separate Easter sermons at their various churches in Akure.

Bishop Borokini explained that Jesus’ resurrection has made smooth our broken relationship with God, and taken away curses either personal or generational.

In his Easter sermon theme titled, “Implication of Christ Resurrection”, the Archbishop admonished Christians to see it as a necessity to proclaim the goodness of God and preach the gospel of joy and eternal life.

The cleric described Jesus’ resurrection as a mystery that is beyond human reasoning and understanding, and a unique feature in Christendom, human history, and human record.

On his part, Rev. Fr. Omokoba during the Easter mass celebration, said many people are not aware of the eternal significance behind Easter celebration, noting that most people are more concerned with candy, and new clothes rather than the new life Christ offers us.

He said Christians should hold on to Jesus who had gone ahead to open the gate of eternal life for us to make heaven.

The cleric admonished christian faithful and Nigerians to be selfless in their service to God and humanity, saying helping the needy and comforting refugees should be part of them to ensure a better society.
