Churches across the Tamale metropolis Sunday marked the resurrection of Jesus Christ with church services.
The congregations clad mostly in all white apparels danced and praised God.
Preaching the sermon at the Tamale East Church of Christ on the theme: “What will you be told in memory? What will be my legacy if Jesus comes today?" Bro. Ahmed Yahaya urged Christians to identify and harness their talents to be able to help the needy in society.
“This will be the only legacy one could leave behind and be remembered in absence,” he noted.
According to him, Jesus left a legacy after sacrificing His life to save mankind.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy, but to be useful and compassionate to one another by making a difference in society,” Bro. Yahaya said.
He admonished Christians, particularly the youth to use the little talent they possess to help the course of the church and their societies as a whole.
