Christians urged to let the presence Christ manifest in their lives

Takoradi, Most Reverend John Bonaventure Kwofie, the Catholic Bishop of the Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese, has urged Christians not to use the birth of Christ for merry making only, but to also manifest the presence of God in their lives.

He said many people use Christmas to show off their earthly wealth, adding that, it should also be used to spread the gospel, especially to those who still do not know Christ and needed spiritual healing and growth.

Bishop Kwofie said this in a sermon at the Star of the Sea Cathedral in Takoradi to mark the birth of Jesus Christ.

The Parishioners, who were mainly dressed in white attire to signify their joy for the birth of Christ, sang and danced to melodious hymns by the Cathedral choir.

The Bishop said the birth of Christ was being celebrated to enable Christians to be restored to their original dignity, while restoring the world to its original beauty.

Bishop Kwofie said in the beginning, God created everything beautifully and put mankind in charge of them, but man failed to perform his duty by sinning.

He said God allowed his only son to come to earth to restore mankind to his original dignity and honour.

Bishop Kwofie therefore urged Christians to allow the birth of Christ to descend in their various homes, work places and society, by spreading the gospel to help save and restore the world.

He offered prayers for the sick, and for peace to reign in the country.
