“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.”
John 11:25 . This year, Madiba Youth Organisation is joining other Christians worldwide to celebrate Easter. On this day, Christians around the world join in celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Son of Man. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ reminds people around the world of the presence of a faithful God who offers a love more powerful than death.
For Christians everywhere, Easter is a day when, in the words of the ancient jubilant hymn, the earth “rejoices in shining splendor, radiant in the brightness of its King.” It is a time to be humbled by and grateful for God’s sacrifice and boundless love and to rejoice in the sheer wonder of life and the promise of victory over death.
Easter commemorates our Savior’s triumph over sin, and we take joy in spending this special time with family and friends and reflecting on the many blessings that fill our lives. During this season of renewal, let us come together and give thanks to the Almighty who made us in His image and redeemed us in His love.
Easter comes at the end of the Lenten season, a period of penitence and solemnity in many Christian traditions. The Lenten season prepares Christ’s followers for the joyous affirmation that “Christ is risen!” Holy Week activities, including Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, and Good Friday, remind the faithful of the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection
We honor those who gave their lives to advance peace and secure liberty across the flora and fauna. Many traditions associated with Easter have become a part of our South African way of life. Although these customs may differ, the universal message of Easter draws all Christian communities together. As families and friends gather to celebrate, we renew our commitment to follow the example of Jesus Christ in loving our neighbors and giving of ourselves for others.
On this joyous day, let us also remember all those in need and those Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith, like Solomon Kalushi Mahlangu, Benedict Daswa , Chris Hani and others.
Take care during Easter celebrations
Madiba Youth Organisation, while condemning drugs and substance abuse during the Easter holidays and has appealed for young people to exercise caution and good sense during the activities and various parties targeting mainly young people. Easter has become synonymous with breaks from study and parties. Although this is not harmful, Easter should not become yet another excuse for substance abuse.
Madiba Youth Organisation encouraged young people to participate and get involved in healthy leisure alternatives and if they party, they do so without resorting to substance abuse. One should not believe that substance abuse is an important factor in socializing. The consumption of illicit drugs and/or excessive alcohol consumption can lead to incidents such as aggressive behavior, unwanted sexual relationships and traffic accidents, among others. Referring to the latter, MYO urged everyone to refrain from driving while drunk.
Madiba Youth Organisation also appealed to all party organizers and tavern owners to show responsibility towards young people attending the Easter parties being held and also to young people themselves to behave responsibly, even at private activities.
“We wish everyone a Happy Easter. May God bless you, and May likewise God bless our great Realm,” said Adam Sibuyi the team leader of Madiba Youth Organization.
