Christ’s death should rekindle faith
Hohoe, Reverend Benjamin Acquaye, Pastor of Hohoe Hope Temple of the International Central Gospel Church has said Jesus Christ's selfless atonement of mankind's sins on the cross should rekindle and deepened faith of Christians to love one another and country.
He said if this principle was well understood and upheld by Christendom, the world would have assumed a different orientation than what pertained now.
Rev Acquaye, giving a homily on "His Love on the Cross" said the lessons heralding Christ's crucifixion and death could not be likened to theatrical play without a meaning.
He said the events were real and well documented accounts of Christ's love for mankind, which should form the basis for deepened faith and love for all.
"Jesus Christ paid the highest price on the Cross, so mankind will have life in abundance. Let us reciprocate this unflinching gesture by exemplifying love everywhere," he said.
Rev Acquaye said "If the lessons are well taken, our attitudes to the environment including polluting water bodies, insanitary conditions around us, the galamsey menace, corruptible tendencies and the general craze for inordinate materialism will have been eliminated from society."
He called on Christians to mainstream the lessons and principles of Christ's crucifixion and death on the Cross to exude his pricelessness and selflessness to "practically die" for one another.
"His death on the Cross is not taking of life but giving life. It was not a tragedy but triumph and dominion over death," Rev Acquaye added.
