Christians have been urged to walk away from dishonesty into the righteous in remembrance of the death of Christ. The message was delivered as part of a special service at Watoto Church downtown in celebration of Palm Sunday, a feast that commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Watoto Downtown Pastor Brian Abaho, was quoted by Uganda Radio Network encouraging Christians to drop immorality and dishonesty, and turn away from acts of pornography, gossip and laziness, which he said are catalysts for bringing down the church. Abaho also said Christians ought to often reflect on their lives, instead of thinking that their good deeds to other people and diligent attendance of Church alone can lead to salvation.
Abaho also urged Christians to reflect on Christ’s death as the ultimate sacrifice for man. He says the death of Jesus was planned by God and it was the greatest form of sacrifice. Abaho says this should teach Christians that as God planned for the world, they should ensure to ensure they put in their all to attain something. Meanwhile, in Arua, Reverend Father John Baptist Drabe Curate Christ the King Catholic Parish Arua urged Christians to reflect on the suffering that Jesus endured to promote love and peace in the world. “For you to achieve eternity of life, Freedom and Peace, you must accept to suffer just as Jesus did and so as we commemorate this Joyous Day, Let’s work for Peace in our communities and homes, “Fr. Drabo told the Christians.
Meanwhile, at Emmanuel Cathedral Mvara, Bishop Charles Collins Andaku called on the Christians to reflect in their lives and allow Christ to enter their hearts so as to overcome Temptations. Today’s celebration of Palm Sunday also commences the Holy Week during which the Sacrament of the Holy Communion is instituted. During the week, faithful’s will commemorate Good Friday, the Day Jesus suffered and died on the cross for festivities which will climax with Easter Sunday, in celebration of his resurrection.
