Make sacrifices to impact lives – Most Rev Dr Paul Kwabena Boafo

Methodist church Ghana leaders have called on Ghanaians to resolve to use the Easter festivities to make the needed sacrifices to make the country and the world a better place, they challenged Ghanaians to boldly confront the social ills and practices that threaten their unity and identity as a nation.

The methodist church Ghana,
urged Ghanaians to eschew all ethnocentric tendencies, actions and statements that would not promote peace in the country. It also called on the citizenry to avoid saying and doing things that would bring about religious intolerance and conflict in the nation.

“We urge people of different religious persuasions to continue to live together in peace and use peaceful and legitimate means to resolve all differences and challenges that may arise,” it said.

“The celebration of Easter should make us realise that as Ghanaians, we are one people. The peace that Christ gives at Easter should make us rise above all negative or harmful tendencies and see ourselves as members of one nation,” it said.

Ghanaians should make their resources available and work together to make the country great and strong and the world a better place. “And as we prepare for national elections later in the year, let us resolve to follow the path of peace, tolerance and respect.

“I also urge that we continue to pray fervently for the Presidency and the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary, and indeed for all others, that they will discern God’s will, find courage to take bold decisions and implement same, and that each of us will be imbued with sincere love for one another and for our nation Ghana,” he said.

Easter, he added, was an embodiment of God’s unfailing and unconditional love for humanity and His desire to reconcile mankind to Himself and thus enable the best in them to be made manifest.

He said because Christ had been raised from the dead, Christians shall also rise from the dead. “Our faith is not futile; our preaching is not useless; our witness about God is not false, and our brethren who have fallen asleep in Christ are not lost. We have indeed been cleansed from our sins,” he emphasised.

He said as Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ, they needed to intentionally share the good news with the people around them.

Methodist church Ghana, called on Ghanaians to use the Easter season to reflect on the peace and security of the country ahead of the December 7 polls. Most Rev Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo, Observed that just as the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ brought the hope of salvation to Christians, Ghanaians needed to be optimistic that the country would come out of the elections more united than ever.
