The National Head of The Church of Pentecost in Sierra Leone, Apostle Massaboi Zuwu, has urged Christian leaders to be vessels of honour in their generation.
Apostle Massaboi Zuwu made this remark when he gave an exhortation at the ongoing Global Ministers and Wives’ Conference at the Pentecost Convention Centre on Tuesday.
He was speaking on the topic, “Being Vessels of Honour in Our Generation” (2 Timothy 2:20-22). He stated that life is not an event but a process and hence the believer’s walk and service with Him is a lifetime commitment which must be honoured until the return of Christ Jesus.
“The value of a vessel is not in its label, size or age but the value is in its make-up, cost attached to it, its contents and purity,” he mentioned.
Apostle Massaboi Zuwu, who is the former National Head of the Church in Zimbabwe, said that the value of children of God is not in the titles they bear or the positions they occupy, but in the fact that they are made in the image and likeness of God.
“Jesus bought us with His precious blood; a currency greater than any currency the world has and will ever know,” he added.
He stated that some of the ministers and members of the church are just being managed by God and the church leadership, because just like in the days of Noah, their lives continually embarrass God. He charged them to know their value as children of God and let their lives show the value He places on them.
“We are so precious to God such that even if there were just a single person on earth, Jesus Christ would have still died for that person. The power of the Holy Spirit in us makes us so precious. We have no value unless we attach ourselves to the Holy Spirit,” he stated.
Apostle Zuwu continued that to be a vessel of honour one needs to have a strong desire to bring glory and honour to God, saying, “Your life and worship should bring honour to God, because He made you; He called you and He appointed you to be vessels of honour. We should also be willing to cleanse ourselves from evil, sin and jealousy.”
“Every true leader and those who have dedicated their lives as vessels of honour to God should be able to rejoice with people when they achieve their success.”
He concluded by saying that vessels of honour do not struggle for position or possession but wait for the grace of God to locate them.
Ministers of the Church have been advised to take the appointment of church officers, particularly Elders, very seriously because it is esse read more
