Preaching on the theme; “Christ the light to all men”, Rev Obeng Ntow said Jesus brought life, hope and restoration to a world of hopelessness and brokenness.
He added that Jesus freed some from the prison of sickness, others from the loneliness of being an outcast or low class. “His life and death brought freedom from the grips of death, freedom from ignorance concerning God, His Kingdom, the meaning of obedience and the way of salvation.
To the Christian, Jesus says, “You are the light of the world…so, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven”. Rev Obeng Ntow said.
