THE PRESIDING Elder of the Bompata District of the Pentecost International Worship Center (PIWC), Dr Michael Owusu says the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus presents us with hope of a better future.
Speaking to the media at the end of the church’s four day Easter Convention named “He is Risen”, Dr Owusu noted that just as Christ Jesus was buried, Ghanaians may be going through difficult times.
However, he stated that just as Christ Jesus resurrected having been dead and buried for three days, Ghanaians would see good days if their trust is in Jesus.
“We are in trying times and things are difficult across the world but those of us whose faith is in Christ Jesus have hope of a good future and surely God will bless the work of our hands”, the Presiding Elder noted.
Giving details of the Easter Convention by the Church, Dr Owusu said the PIWC members on Thursday gathered for prayer and fellowship.
On Friday, he noted that the members had a Good Friday Service and thanked God for the sacrifice of Christ Jesus on the cross of Calvary.
He noted that on Saturday members of the Bompata District reached out to the community they reside and other adjoining ones with Evangelism where many received the word of the Lord.
“This morning the joy you are seeing on the faces of PIWC members is as a result of the death and resurrection of Christ and his enabling power for us to testify to others about his saving power”, the Presiding Elder stated.
Preaching the Sermon later at the climax at the Convention, Resident Pastor at PIWC Bompata District, Pastor Joshua Kwabena Donkor urged Christians to drink from the deeper truths from the Word of God.
He called on the congregation to totally rely on what God says and to faithfully work with the knowledge they have about Christ.
Pastor Donkor said it was not enough for church members to commend preachers for rightfully dividing the word of truth on the pulpit but to totally obey God.
“Many times people would be praising the word from preachers on the pulpit while they themselves do not take the word seriously to live by it but the power in the word of God should change us, mould us and make us the kind of people God wants”, the PIWC preacher urged.
