Accra, April 16, GNA – Prophet Meshech Aboh, the Founder and General Overseer of the International Pure Fire Chapel at Oleebu near Ablekuma, has called on Christians to demonstrate true love to all humanity.
Prophet Aboh said the Lord God Almighty demonstrated true love to mankind, by sacrificing His only beloved son, Jesus Christ to die to save us from perishing in our sins and therefore it behoves all Christians to follow God’s example, by sharing whatever we have with the poor and needy in society.
He said this at this year’s Annual Love Feast organised by his church, to feed as many people as possible, adding that “the Lord placed on my heart to feed the poor and needy especially at Easter, hence the love feast,”
Prophet Aboh used the occasion to appeal to all politicians to lead exemplary lives worthy of emulation by the people, adding that a true leader is to serve, but not to lord it over his people; therefore, all who want to serve must do so with humility and patience and not through violence and chaos.
Speaking on the theme for the occasion; “Be Your Brother’s Keeper,” the guest speaker, Ms Sherry Ayorkor Botchway, Member of Parliament for Weija said there were diverse ways of showing love to one another and being our brother’s keeper.
“A word of comfort, cheer, encouragement and hope, could do a whole lot of good to a troubled neighbour.”
She said in looking out for the welfare of the other, we should watch our tongues – what we say to others can make and unmake them and in an election year like this, our politicians must be careful with their utterances, and urged them to desist from any insulting pronouncements in the course of their campaign.
She stressed that if Ghanaians truly care for each other, we should all work towards a peaceful registration and elections and urged the youth in the area and Ghana as whole, not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to foment trouble for their selfish gains, but rather “try to use your time and energies profitably for your individual growth, and national development.”
The MP seized the opportunity to advice all eligible voters in the constituency and Ghana at large to register in the ongoing biometric voters’ registration exercise to enable them to exercise their franchise, come December 2012.
She was full of praise for the leadership and the entire congregation of the International Pure Fire Chapel for practically showing love to the poor and the needy at such a time, saying: “if all pastors in the Weija Constituency and the whole of Ghana were to organise such events, a lot of people will find joy and happiness and a sense of belonging in the society.”
There were several dignitaries including the Queen Mother of Twifo Praso-Kayireku in the Central Region, Nana Dankwaa II, who graced the occasion.
There was a wide range of local dishes that were displayed to feed over 400 people at the feast.
