The Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali, Archbishop of Uganda, writes on the Church of Uganda’s website:
In this Easter season, I want to ask you, “What is your destiny?” “Where are you going?”
The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the most important belief in our Christian faith. It reveals so much to us about who our God is. It completes the salvation that Jesus offers us through his death on the cross for our sin. And, it shows us the destiny for all those who put their faith and trust in Jesus.
So, what is your destiny?
If you want your own resurrection life, you need to trust your life to Jesus. Easter is not just about new clothes and eating meat — it is about trusting that God raised Jesus from the dead so you can have the reassurance that your sins are forgiven and your destiny is with God forever. Please do not let this Easter pass without letting Jesus change your life.
I also ask all of us as Ugandans, “What is our destiny as a country?”
I believe our destiny is in Jesus, and our children and youth are our future. Yet, as leaders and parents, we have set up too many obstacles for our children and youth to grow into the full stature of Christ. There is a great need and urgency to address these challenges now.
