The General Overseer of Bless Chapel International (BCI), Reverend Jerry A Wise has advised Ghanaians against missing the significance of Easter.
Most people, he said miss the importance of the period and celebrate it out of context, adding that “Easter is a period of great conciliation between man and God”.
Reverend Jerry A Wise who was preaching at the Easter Sunday service of BCI said, “Easter is a celebration of the gift of Christ, and we must know that Christ sacrificed his life because of our sins, so we should not celebrate this sacrifice in sin, but rather, it should be celebrated avoiding sin.”
He further admonished the leaders of the country to emulate the sacrifices Christ made for the world and make it reflect in their works for Ghana and Africa at large.
“Christ was selfless, devoted and led an exemplary life and that should be the focus of our leaders. They should be able to lead the people righteously instead taking advantage of the vulnerable” he said.
He, however, lauded the leaders who are working hard by making the necessary sacrifices the people need, saying their efforts would not go unnoticed by God, who will bless them immeasurably at the appointed time.
Reverend Jerry A Wise also commended Sheikh Nuhu Osman Sharubutu for promoting religious tolerance among Ghanaians by visiting Christ the King Parish on Easter Sunday to join them in the celebration.
“This is a man of honour, I urge the youth and the public, in general, to promote peace and tranquillity wherever they find themselves because our elders and leaders have already set good examples for us to follow,” he stressed.
