Sermon

The Very Rev. Dr. Sam Prempeh a past Moderator of the General Assembly of the PCG in a sermon on the theme: “Hope for the Lost World” said God has promised to restore us to new heaven through the Prophet Isaiah, adding that hope is certainly that we would receive what has been promised.

“Apostle Paul tells us that what was written in the past in the scriptures is to encourage us to have hope” he added.

Very Rev. Dr. Prempeh said some people and things may give us hope of a better tomorrow but would end up as false hopes, even friends, family members, politicians, may give us some hope of a better future but fail to deliver.

He therefore asked that Christians should learn to put their faith and hope in the Lord for a better future. He the Lord will not fail.
