Christians in Ghana have been called upon to practically demonstrate the virtues of Christ and extend support to the needy to help build an inclusive society.
The Debiso District Pastor of Church of Pentecost, Reverend Paul Asante, made the call in an interview in the Bia West District in the Western North Region.
According to biblical narrative, Jesus Christ showed mercy, kindness, love, compassion and care for all manner of people during His ministry on earth.
Drawing from that standpoint, Rev Asante said, since high percentage of Ghanaians profess to be Christians, they ought to also demonstrate those virtues to make the society a better place to live in.
He said people have built mansions which are guarded by dogs and security persons, while sadly enough, many vulnerable people slept on streets and in front of Shops in the open under the mercy of the weather.
“Can’t we share a little bit of our wealth with the poor and needy persons in our churches, communities and the larger Ghanaian society,” he quizzed.
He therefore, urged Ghanaians and Christians in particular, to be prepared to share what they have with the poor and needy persons in the society, stressing that they should let their prayers and gifts be remembered before the Lord God Almighty, in order to receive His manifold blessings as individuals and as a nation.
He advise Christians to emulate the shining example of Cornelius of Biblical days and be blessed so as to be a blessing to society too.
