The Founder of the In Him is Life Church International, Rev Isaac Opoku has entreated Christians to reflect on the death of Christ which has to do with His goodness during this Easter festive season instead of focusing on merry making.
Delivering a sermon today to mark the Eater celebration in Accra,Rev Isaac Opoku who is also known as Rev Obotuo noted that Christ died for us to take away all our sins hence Christians must sit down to assess their lives to know if they are living a Christ like life instead of traveling to Kwahu and other places to have fun.
Christians are celebrating Easter. Th is a Christian holiday that celebrates the belief in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the New Testament of the Bible, the event is said to have occurred three days after Jesus was crucified by the Romans and died in roughly 30 A.D.
The holiday concludes the “Passion of Christ,” a series of events and holidays that begins with Lent—a 40-day period of fasting, prayer and sacrifice—and ends with Holy Week, which includes Holy Thursday (the celebration of Jesus’ Last Supper with his 12 Apostles), Good Friday (on which Jesus’ crucifixion is observed), and Easter Sunday.
Rev Opoku who was preaching on the significance of Easter stated “Christ died in place of us and his death shows the love of God towards mankind.
“The is something that should be our focus as Christian for the Easter celebration and do good to people” Rev Obotuo explained .
He further noted that Christians are now making fun of Christ by using His name for bad things. According to him pastors and oil producing companies now collaborate use various ways to sell their products. “How can you sell ordinary oil to your members claiming it is anointing oil and can do a lot of miracles.”
Rev Advised Christians to put their trust in God instead of their Pastor and anointing oils.” Pastors can not do anything about your salvation rather than only to warn you.
