Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, the Evangelism Ministry Director and Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, has declared that embracing Jesus Christ brings about a life of profound transformation and abundance.
Apostle Dr. Markin made this proclamation during his sermon on Tuesday, November 21, 2023, at the opening day of the “Tema-Ashaiman for Christ” Gospel crusade. The four-day event, which is taking place at the Nii Oninku Park in Tema Community 1, is under the theme “Life That Satisfies” (John 1:14, John 10:10).
Drawing inspiration from Proverbs 22:4 and John 3:14-18, the Evangelism Director highlighted the core elements of salvation, healing, and deliverance that come with the acceptance of Jesus.
“People seek wealth, honour, and life throughout their existence. They strive for success, recognition, and a life that is truly satisfying. However, many find themselves lacking in one aspect or another. Some possess wealth but lack honour, while others may have both but feel an emptiness within,” he said.
Referring to Hebrews 2:15, Apostle Markin addressed the universal fear of death that haunts many, emphasising that Jesus offers a solution to this fear. “Through the fear of death, people live in bondage,” he explained. “But in Jesus, there is abundant life – a life that satisfies.”
Apostle Markin went on to distinguish between the confused life that some individuals lead, marked by mental and emotional turmoil, and the eternal life promised in Christ Jesus.
Citing the story from Mark 5:1-15, where Jesus encountered a demon-possessed man living among tombs in the country of the Gadarenes, he illustrated how Jesus brings acceptance, freedom, and a complete transformation to all who reach out to Him.
“Jesus is the author of eternal life,” Apostle Markin proclaimed. “He brings light to the darkness in our lives, offering an abundant life that goes beyond the material and superficial. In Him, there is acceptance for the rejected, freedom for the bound, and a satisfying life for all.”
Drawing attention to individuals grappling with issues such as broken relationships, financial challenges, and the weight of sin, Apostle Markin urged the crowd to turn to Jesus, the source of true satisfaction. “In Jesus, one finds not just temporary relief but a lasting solution to life’s challenges,” he declared.
Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, therefore, urged all who yearn to experience the abundant life that Jesus promises to invite Jesus into their lives in order to access the life that truly satisfies the deepest longings of the human soul.
The “Tema-Ashaiman for Christ” gospel crusade is being jointly organised by the Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost together with the Tema and Ashaiman areas. The event will be climaxed on Saturday, November 25, 2023 with a health-screening exercise
