Jesus came to stand with criminals, Osinbajo says in Easter sermon

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has enjoined Nigerians to love one another irrespective of tribe or faith, saying it was the reason for the season of Easter.


Osinbajo gave this advice in the sermon he delivered at Easter Sunday Service at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja.

The sermon titled: “Revelations on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ,” the Vice President said Jesus Christ was friendly to criminals and cited some bible stories.

His word, “Jesus before now had shown that he came to stand with criminals, sinners. For instance, John 8:3 proved to us that Jesus intervened in the case of a woman who committed adultery; in Luke 19:5, Jesus was seeing with Zacchaeus, a corrupt man. So Jesus had a characteristics of being around criminals.

“He said I have come for these people. Between the criminals was Jesus Christ; one repenting and the other mocking. Spiritually, Jesus stood between hell and heaven. His cross is a cross of mediation; he is an intercessor. All that is required is to believe in him; acceptance of his commitment he made on the cross.”
