KOHIMA, April 13: Nagaland Chief Minister Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu today wished all a very blessed Good Friday and a Happy Easter.
In his message, Dr Shurhozelie said Good Friday is the most important day for Christians, commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and His death at Calvary. It is centered towards feeling of sorrow, at the pain and humiliation that Jesus underwent for the cause of goodness and to save our souls.
On this holy occasion, he said, “It is better to allow our lives to speak for us than just our words and on Good Friday we get to take stock of whether we are achieving this.”
He also wished that everyone be blessed with the goodness of Good Friday and that all may give thanks to God through their living.
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son to die on the Cross to take away the sins of humankind, he quoted.
The Chief Minister said that it is about the hope that we have because there was an empty tomb. Jesus chose to lay-down on the Cross in place of us, so that we can have eternal life.
He said, “Just like after every night comes a new day, after a painful death come a new life. Pray that the Lord fill our hearts with peace, hold us in His love and bless us with His grace,” the message said.
