Let’s Not Take Our Stability For Granted – President Mills
He referred to the recent political trouble in Mali with its negative repercussions, and cautioned that under no circumstance should the stability of the nation be taken for granted.
President Mills made the observation when he spoke briefly at the Legon Inter- non- denominational Church (LIC) service, where he joined the congregation to observe the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
President Mills, who had been a member of the Congregation sometime ago, and worshipped with them on the last December 31st Night, described his visit as homecoming and thanked the Congregation for the warm reception accorded him and his entourage.
“This is a home for me, “President Mills said, adding, “this is where it all started,” in an apparent reference to the birth of his spiritual strength of the road to becoming president.
He said it was an opportunity for him to be at the church once again, and acknowledged the spiritual support from the religious community in the governance process.
President Mills stressed the need for more prayers coupled with determination to execute all tasks as required for the success of the nation.
In a sermon on the theme: “Experiencing the Power of the Resurrection” Rev Yaw Boamah, the Resident Pastor of the church, pointed out that the resurrection of Christ made futile the power of death and empowered believers to do great works.
Describing the resurrection as the most important event in human history Rev. Boamah said it redefined history, and placed truth on mankind with the capacity to change the human experience.
“Without the resurrection, there will be no Christianity,” Rev Boamah said, adding that the day of Jesus’ death, Good Friday was a day of humiliation for Christ and his followers, but Holy Sunday, the day he rose gave proof to the backing he had from God, and evidenced that he was no crook, and a seal of God’s approval.
“To God be the glory, Christ has risen,” Rev Boamah, declared.
He identified women as having the wings that carried the resurrection, and that “the power is invested in the vulnerable”.
He urged Ghanaians to be empowered by the power of the resurrection, and stressed action backed with prayers.
Rev Boamah said the resurrection power gives power to the weak, and urged the congregation to tap into that power by banishing fear, experience a victorious living, overcome sin and be one’s brother’s keeper.
Prayers were said for the President, the Government, political leaders and Ghanaians.
President Mills was accompanied by Mr Enoch Teye Mensah, Minister for Works and Housing and Mr Kobena Ade Coker, Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress.
There were song ministrations by the LIC Choir.
