The Director of Youth Affairs, CAC Nigeria and Overseas, Pastor Samson O. Gbuyiro has said resurrection will mean nothing to anyone who has not experienced the power of resurrection. 

Pastor Gbuyiro stated this while ministering on the topic "Christ is Risen" (Matthew 28: 5-7) on Sunday April 17, 2022 at a programme tagged "A Special Easter Sunday Service with the President of CAC, Pastor S.O. Oladele" organized by CAC All Saints' Chapel, Ibadan. 

He noted that the resurrection of Christ remains the only foundation of Christian faith, noting that the foundation upon which we make our decree is the foundation of Jesus.

The Cleric said every year we are being privileged to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, but the Celebration should be seen as a wake up call, not a matter of celebration. 

"I consider it as God calling our attention to something beyond what the world itself understand. Seeing Jesus on the cross reveal to us the love of God for mankind. At the resurrection of Jesus we see God revealing His power. There is a power on the day Christ resurrected and that is why Paul says that "I may know Him...."

While explaining the four sides of His (Jesus) resurrection, Pastor revealed that they are the side of prophecy (it has been prophesied), the event side and the Story side.

He explained that, "The world is familiar with these three. It is being taught in the classroom. You don't need to be a Christian to tell us about resurrection. It is a story everybody know about. If resurrection is all about these three there is no need for us to gather."

"The aspect God wants us to have is 'experience.' So many religious leaders promised their followers resurrection. If Jesus is the only leader who promised to resurrect and he resurrected and as followers of Jesus, haven't experienced the power of resurrection, we are just like the followers of other leaders (who promised and failed)."

"Our gathering is not to say the story, but to experience the power of resurrection.The condition to live a life that ressurection has come to taught us is death. Before ressurection can take place death must have taken place. That is, death to self, death to sin, death to the world, death to Satan and death to our own self."

Quoting Galatians chapter 2 verse 20, the Cleric said ressurection is meant to produce a life, a life that is not yours, but a life that is His (for Christ), adding that to anyone who has not experience it, ressurection is a mere story.
