The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kaduna State says despite 2020 being a dark year, the grace of the birth of Christ has come to wipe away fears and troubles.

A Christmas message signed by the CAN President, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, said, 2020 is the world’s year of great challenge, especially with the coming of COVID-19.

”In Nigeria and particularly in Kaduna State, the pandemic added more salt to injury as we were already dealing with the challenges of insecurity such as bandits attacks on many of our villages and kidnapping of many innocent people for ransom.”

“But the grace of his birth is here to wipe off all our fears and troubles, and by Jesus birth, we shall regain a new Hope, our land shall be healed, we shall be called by a new name, glory will fill the land, the truth will flourish like the palm tree and peace like an overflowing river.”

He noted that the birth of Christ became the end of an age caged in traditions that were religious, but mostly anti-human, adding that Christ’s coming shook the throne of world leaders.

“Leaders who rejected the leadership roles and became rulers and tyrants. It is evident in their efforts to destroy Jesus from birth, but truth never dies, he lived, he gave the blow and he still reigns supreme over all,” he added.

“As Christians, he said, “we are a personification of Christ called to be a threat to falsehood, insincerity and all inhuman deals. At seasons like this, we ought to reflect and see to know how much of Christ-like we were. Beyond the marriages, beyond the drinks and food, this is an opportunity for us to reflect over the past, to ask ourselves as individuals and as a people, how much of a christ-like have I (we) been? Because Christmas comes with the grace of rebirth which only a true atonement can bring.”

He reminded Christians to keep in mind that it is a season celebrating the great sacrifice of Jesus to save humankind.

He also called on Christians to be law-abiding citizens, celebrate Christmas in love, peace, respecting others and strictly observing government regulations on COVID-19.

He noted that the pandemic is real and is causing havoc in many parts of the world, warning that Kaduna State and the country at large are recording more cases in this second wave.
