Advertisement

Today, Ghanaian Christians are joining millions of believers around the world to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This significant event, which occurred over 2000 years ago, is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. It is a day of great joy and celebration, marked by congregational services, special church programs, and some processions across the country.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the victory of life over death. It is the triumph of light over darkness and hope over despair. According to the accounts in the New Testament, Jesus was crucified by the Romans at Calvary after being accused of claiming to be the King of the Jews and the Messiah promised to the Jews in the Old Testament scripture. However, on the third day after his burial, he rose from the dead, fulfilling the prophecies and promises of God.

For believers, the resurrection of Jesus Christ symbolizes the hope of their own resurrection and the promise of eternal life with God. It is a day of renewed faith and commitment to living a godly life, characterized by love, forgiveness, compassion, humility, and service to others.

Many Christians wear white apparel to signify Christ’s victory over death. In some parts of the world, like the Philippines and Spain, processions are held on this day. In Ghana, some believers hold processions at dawn and visit cemeteries to symbolically search for their buried savior.

As Christians reflect on the significance of this day, many Christian leaders have emphasized the importance of living a life worthy of Christ’s sacrifice. Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, the Presiding Bishop of the United Denominations Originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches, urged Christians to eschew vices such as alcoholism, stealing, fornication, adultery, and robbery, emphasizing that following Jesus requires sacrifice.

The Reverend Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, Founder, and President of Worldwide Miracle Outreach, also emphasized the need for Christians to learn lessons from the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He called on believers to emulate Christ’s humility, service, obedience, and selflessness, making it their hallmark.

As Ghanaian Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ today, they are reminded of the message of hope, love, and salvation that He brought to the world. They are called to renew their commitment to living a godly life and to share this message of hope and salvation with others.
