Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE most mean­ing­ful time in our cal­en­dar is upon us. Not our own birth­day, not Christ­mas, but Easter!

As a na­tion whose con­sti­tu­tion was founded and built around the Holy Bi­ble and its prin­ci­ples, we mark this day with a na­tional pub­lic hol­i­day. That is ap­pro­pri­ate. While some cel­e­brate "Good Fri­day", all the way through to "Easter Mon­day", Easter is specif­i­cally "Res­ur­rec­tion Sun­day".

This is the most sig­nif­i­cant sin­gle event in world his­tory.

It was the cul­mi­na­tion of the only time God be­came a man, walked the earth with­out sin, was cru­ci­fied on a cross as pay­ment for the sins of all mankind, and af­ter three days, on Easter, He rose from the dead to con­quer death!

His gift of sal­va­tion is re­ceived when a per­son turns away from their sin­ful life and puts their faith in Je­sus as their Lord and Saviour. Easter is a time of joy­ful re­mem­brance, and sober re­flec­tion.

I pray that you find your­self a bi­ble-be­liev­ing church and make 2017 the most mean­ing­ful Easter you've ever had. PAS­TOR CHRIS PLUMMER, Pot­ters House Chris­tian Cen­tre.
