DCE Leads Drama Troupe To Sketch ‘The Passion Of The Christ’

The Akim Oda Zone of The Church of Pentecost celebrated the Holy Saturday of the 2018 Easter in a grand style with a mock crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Birim South District, Hon. Richmond Amponsah Agyabeng, an Elder of the Church, and his drama troupe dramatised the ‘Passion of the Christ.’

Through the sketch, they illustrated how the soldiers arrested Jesus Christ, beat, scorned and tortured Him. The team also dramatised the awful crucifixion on the cross as the members watched on amidst weeping.

Pastor Aaron Teye-Kwesi of Asene District, later delivered the sermon on the title: “The Legacy of the Cross” with scripture reference from 1 Corinthians 1:17-18.

Pastor Teye-Kwesi said Jesus’ death destroyed racism, tribalism and the like, saying, “He died for both the Jew and the Gentile.”

He explained that the City of Corinth had two harbours and different people with different lifestyles. He also said that the city was inhabited by many strangers.

“The Christians in Corinth were not exhibiting a good lifestyle. Some were fornicating while others misconducted themselves during Lord’s Supper. With the division in the Church, Paul said they had made useless the message of the cross,” he said.

Pastor Teye-Kwesi also indicated that when Jesus died on the cross He left a legacy for believers.

“We are delivered from spiritual death, provided with salvation, healing, and many more. Jesus left for us the legacy of courage as He went to the cross with courage to die for us. He has therefore given us the spirit of boldness or power but not timidity – 2 Timothy 1:7.

“Jesus also gave us the legacy of the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-18). Jesus had to die for the Holy Spirit to come to us. He [the Holy Spirit] strengthens us to live as Christians; He also comes with the Spiritual gifts,” he added.

During the Holy Ghost session after the sermon, many received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues.

The service, which was chaired by Pastor Samuel K. Oteng (the Zonal Chairman), was attended by about 1,423 members.
