Palm Sunday: CAN urges leaders to emulate Jesus on humility, unity

0 73

The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, has urged Nigerian leaders to emulate the virtue of humility and unity, as exemplified by Christ and for Christians to be beacons of hope and agents of change, despite the situation in the country.

He gave the admonition on Sunday in a Palm Sunday message he signed.

The Palm Sunday is a Christian feast celebrated on the last Sunday of Lent season, before Easter to commemorate the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.

“Amid our current realities in Nigeria, where we are confronted with a myriad of challenges ranging from social unrest to economic uncertainties and tensions, the essence of Palm Sunday offers us a beacon of light and inspiration.

“The image of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, instead of a war chariot or an exotic means of transportation, and being welcomed by crowds waving palm branches and laying their cloaks on the ground, serves as a poignant reminder of humility for our leaders and the power of peace and collective faith for all citizens.

“In reflecting on the lessons of Palm Sunday for contemporary Nigerian society, we are called to emulate the virtue of unity exemplified by Jesus Christ. Just as the people of Jerusalem set aside their differences to welcome the Prince of Peace, let us set aside our prejudices, grievances, and animosities to foster a spirit of harmony, reconciliation, and understanding among ourselves,” Okoh said.
