Ven. Ezeji preaches forgiveness as epicenter of Good Friday

The Vicar, Christ Redemption Parish, Anglican Communion, WTC, Enugu, Venerable Emeka Ezeji, says the purpose of Christ’s death is to redeem humanity from condemnation.

Venerable Ezeji who stated this to mark Good Friday, said the occasion called for deep reflection, noting that by Jesus death, He had reconciled humanity to God in one body by the cross.

According to the Anglican clergyman, Jesus Christ faces his accusers and refuses to answer on their terms, even as he refused to use his own power to overcome by force, or to see others hurt.

“Jesus knows what he came to do, and so when on the cross, He said, it’s finished, accomplished, amen, done, perfected, it was indeed perfected.

“So, he didn’t need to revenge, or retaliate because, all of those were in the plan of God to bring salvific grace to mankind. So, he is a man of purpose who knew where he was going and these are the actors (accusers) of the cross who must help him to achieve his purpose on earth.

“So one of the words on the cross is, forgive them for they do not know what they do..so forgiveness is paramount in the Christian faith and that’s why we preach it, we believe it, we do it and until we do it, Jesus said you cannot receive forgiveness from the father,” Ven. Ezeji stated.

He noted that Jesus Christ willingly laid down his life for the sake of others which, demonstrated His love for man.

“He said for this reason have I come that I may destroy the powers of hell, the powers of darkness, that’s why he came and because of this reason, we call it Good Friday.

“On Good Friday, the Paschal Lamb went to the cross, on Good Friday he died for the sins of the world, on Good Friday, all our evil doings were made good by that blood of Jesus that flowed from the veins heating the ground and bringing healing, deliverance, redemption and freedom to mankind, that’s why it’s good.,” he said.

The Venerable Ezeji explained that the integral part of the Paschal Mystery, which stands for the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ was a singular event that could never be repeated, substituted, or superseded.

The service which was well attended featured insights on the lessons of Jesus’ experiences on the way to the cross.
