God’s Affirmation: A “Yes” to Jesus’ Purpose

Central to the Easter story is the concept of God’s affirmation. Jesus’ life, teachings, and ultimately, his sacrifice on the cross, embodied the ultimate expression of love and purpose. Through Jesus’ resurrection, God declares a resounding “Yes” to this mission. It signifies God’s pleasure in Jesus’ actions and his fulfillment of offering humanity the gifts of love and eternal life.


This “Yes” extends beyond Jesus himself. It encompasses the countless individuals throughout history who, like Jesus, stood up for what’s right.  The apostles, martyrs, and activists who dedicated their lives to truth, peace, and justice mirrored the purpose Jesus embodied. We believe their sacrifices, too, received God’s affirmation, granting them new life in his presence.


Beyond the Past: A “Yes” to a Brighter Future

The message of Easter isn’t confined to historical events. It is a beacon of hope, urging us to look forward and anticipate God’s “Yes” in our own lives.  Inspired by Jesus’ life, we are called to contribute to a better world through our words and actions.


Easter beckons us to live by God’s “Yes” – to champion truth, honesty, and justice.  It compels us to actively oppose evil, injustice, and anything that diminishes human dignity. This is the core message we carry forward, not just as individuals, but as a community striving for a more just and compassionate world. Let us live in anticipation of God’s “Yes” as we endeavor to walk a path of victory, honoring the spirit of Easter.


Summarising Bishop Michael Maxwell’s Message:

In celebration of Easter, Christians worldwide unite in gratitude, acknowledging God’s power manifested through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This divine act signifies triumph over injustice, evil, sin, and death, reassuring believers that despite prevailing challenges, ultimate victory lies in communion with God. Easter prompts reflection on Jesus’ resurrection, shifting the narrative from victimhood to triumph, as he emerges vindicated following his crucifixion.

Central to Easter’s message is God’s affirmation of Jesus’ purpose—bestowing love and eternal life—and rejection of evil’s attempts to diminish his humanity. Through resurrection, God affirms Jesus’ earthly endeavors, laying the groundwork for the restoration of justice, righteousness, and peace. Moreover, Easter commemorates the victories of individuals who, like Jesus, championed truth and righteousness, often at great personal cost. Their lives exemplify God’s ongoing affirmation, as they transition to eternal life in His presence.

Easter propels believers forward, inspiring anticipation of divine affirmation as they strive to uphold righteousness and combat injustice. It encourages active participation in promoting truth, love, and human dignity while resisting evil and discrimination. This message underscores the collective responsibility to live in alignment with God’s will, fostering a society founded on principles of integrity, justice, and compassion.

As we embrace the Easter message, may we anticipate God’s affirmation and endeavor to live victoriously for Him. Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed and joyous Easter from the Anglican Church of Barbados.
