The Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has asked believers to emulate the life of Jesus Christ in their day to day activities so as to enter the kingdom of heaven when they die.
Dr. Lwanga made the call on Sunday during the Easter day prayers at Lubaga Cathedral and urged Christians to continue behaving well as has been the norm during the 40 days of lent period.
“There are increased spates of murders, order http://debbiehowes.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/notes.php violence and many other evil acts among our people. Jesus died and resurrected so that all this is washed away and we turn to Him. We should do good always so as we can join the kingdom of heaven, http://chernichovsky.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-product-factory.php ”Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga said.

The man of God said that despite the increase in number of believers all over the world, this has not been reflected in the good acts of the people urging people to always put God first in whatever they do.
