The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has made a passionate call on Christians all over the world to strive to be the light of the world.
He made the call when delivering a sermon titled: “Let your light shine” during the climax of the 60th Anniversary celebrations of The Lord’s Pentecostal Church at Kwashieman in Accra.
He revealed that the life of Jesus Christ is the light of the world and that anyone who believes in Him automatically has the life that gives light.
Quoting Scriptures from Matthew 5:14-16, Apostle Nyamekye said: “Throughout the New Testament, the followers of Jesus are called to be lights with the responsibility to dispel darkness. When Christians hide their lights, they are harming the world with darkness. What benefits are you bringing to the world as a born-again Christian?”
According to him, no one puts a lamp under a bowl because a lamp is designed to help people see in dark places, adding that, followers of Jesus Christ must be determined to give lights to those around them through their deeds.
“By growing in relationship with Jesus every day, following Him step by step, we partner with Him in spreading His light for the world,” he explained.
He added: “We live in a dark world, full of lies, hate and confusion. However, God’s Word tells us to “cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.”
