The Koforidua Effiduase Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful, has admonished Christians to accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ, saying, “The Lordship of Jesus is connected to our salvation.”
Apostle Nsaful gave the advice in a sermon he preached at Nsukwao Central Assembly on the evening of Friday, April 2, 2021, during the Easter convention of Nsukwao District. The convention was on the theme, “Jesus is Lord, yet He died for the sins of the world.”
Quoting from Luke 24:33-34; Philippians 2:6-8, John 1:27; 3:16 and Romans 4:10, Apostle Yeboah Nsaful said that even though Jesus is Lord, he humbled himself to the point of dying like a criminal to save the world from sin. He stated: “To be a Christian, one must accept Jesus as Lord.”
Expatiating on the death on the cross, Apostle Nsaful said it was the worst form of punishment and was meant for hardened criminals condemned to death. “So to say Jesus is a Messiah was nonsense to the philosophers of the time,” he said, adding, “The Jews who believed in miracles could not accept the fact that Jesus is a Messiah because he could not save himself from the cross, but Jesus is Lord even in the grave.”
On why Jesus, who is Lord, should die for sinners, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful said that Jesus as a servant leader died to save the world from sin, to demonstrate the love of God, to be a ransom for the world, to reconcile man to God, for justification and to prove that he is the lord of both the dead and the living.
Concluding his sermon, Apostle Nsaful advised Christians to accept the lordship of Jesus Christ in every aspect of their lives, commit to him, and expect his second coming.
