Nick Vujicic, the man known around the world as the “limbless evangelist” as he was born without any arms and legs, said in an Easter message that the holiday is about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, not bunnies and eggs.
“With Easter soon approaching, I want to take the next week to focus on the relentless, comforting love provided to us by Christ Jesus. Many people associate Easter with bunnies and eggs, but I want to take the next week to focus on the sacrifice Christ made for US,” Vujicic wrote on Facebook Sunday.
“Despite our messy, sinful, human-ness, Jesus sacrificed Himself as an act of real love, so that we may be made whole. I can’t wait to go on this journey of experiencing the love of God together.”
The evangelist cited Mark 8:31 in the Bible, which reads:
“He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that He must be killed and after three days rise again.”
Vujicic is known for his inspirational message of how he overcame depression and a life without limbs.
