Member representing the South East on the Governing Board of the North East Development Commission (NEDC), Rep. Sam Onuigbo, has called on Christians to embrace the cardinal lessons from the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in their everyday lives.

Onuigbo made this call in an Easter message released on Easter Sunday, 31st March, 2024.

The former National Lawmaker stated that the story of the death and resurrection of Christ is replete with the lessons of unconditional love, compassion, forgiveness, perseverance, obedience, and dedication to duty as shown by Christ.

Citing from the Book of Luke 22:49-51, Onuigbo pointed out that nothing best exemplifies Christ’s willingness to forgive even those who wronged Him than the restoration of the ear of one of the servants of the Chief Priest who had come to arrest Him.

Christ would further display His sense of duty, perseverance and determination to be sacrificial for those whom he loves unconditionally, by going ahead with His death and resurrection even though the human part of Him was scared at the end.

He therefore charged Christians to remember these cardinal lessons of Christ’s journey and consequently attempt to live the Christlike life as the society will immensely benefit from this and the world better for it.
