Gandhi on Easter
April 21st 2019 by Mershon Niesner
A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.Mahatma Gandhi, Indian activist
You might think it strange that, as a practicing Christian, I’d quote Gandhi, a Hindu, on Easter Sunday. Gandhi, the father of Indian independence, had a goal of religious pluralism. His vision was for people with different religious beliefs to co-exist with mutual understanding. In his quote above, he is championing Jesus and describing his crucifixion as a “perfect act.” What Christian could say it better?
Easter is the pinnacle of the year for Christians. The day this man who “offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others” rose from the dead after being crucified. For Christians, Jesus’ resurrection is personal. I hope that for all Easter is a symbol of hope, renewal and new life.
Consider these questions:
If you’re a Christian, what does Easter mean to you?
How has Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection changed your life?
To whom do you turn in times of grief, pain, or great joy?
