Award winning Ghanaian gospel musician Joe Mettle has stated that he misses the experience of joining other believers to worship God in church.
The President recently announced the ban on public gatherings including church services as a measure to help prevent the spread of coronavirus pandemic which is causing a lot of havoc the world over. And as a result, there’s a lock down in Accra, Kumasi, Kasoa and Tema.
Speaking during an interview with Nana Romeo on Accra100.5FM’s Ayeeko Ayeeko show, the gospel musician stated; “I would have loved to sort of like be out there, have fellowship with brethren like is the norm, but whether or not they’ve shut down the churches, it still doesn’t prevent me from serving God; it still doesn’t prevent me from spending time with God because he lives in me and I can actually worship him everywhere I find myself. So, it hasn’t reduced, it’s the experience of gathering together with other believers to worship God, I miss it, I miss it.”
The interview which took place yesterday Friday, 10 April 2020 was aimed at discussing the experience of celebrating Easter under lock down.
Joe Mettle went ahead to remind Christians that; “God never promised us we will not go through trials and tribulations, rather the promise he made us is that no matter what we go through, He is with us. That’s the assurance we have that through all that is happening around us, God is with us. We’re going through tribulation; it doesn’t mean God has deserted us”.
