Easter must draw us closer to God - Pastor

Christians praying Christians praying

Christians have been urged to enhance their spiritual walk with God as they mark Palm Sunday.

Reverend Femi Dzifa Tetevi, the Akatsi District Pastor of the Lord's Pentecostal Church International, admonished all believers of the Christian faith to fight for the deep things of God that bring spiritual growth and eternal walk with the Holy Spirit.

He said every believer must continue to practice Godly lifestyles "if we want to be more connected to God".

Reverend Tetevi made the call during a sermon delivered at the Akatsi branch of the Church on Sunday to mark Palm Sunday.

He said our Saviour Jesus Christ went through tribulation in order to bring salvation to all mankind and that Christians must live life worthy of the Kingdom calling by neglecting things that do not glorify God.

Palm Sunday is celebrated every year by Christians around the world to commemorate the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem before his crucifixion on Good Friday.

In ancient times, palm branches symbolised goodness and victory.

The Ghana News Agency (GNA) observed outdoor activities mostly practised by some Churches within the Akatsi South Municipality did not happen due to restrictions given by government towards mitigating the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, most fellowship centres the GNA visited have designed their premises with palm branches to signify the relevance of the day.
