The Tema Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Matthew Larbi Wettey, has charged Christians to be bold and fearless in their efforts to propagate the gospel message of Jesus Christ in order to advance the Kingdom of God.
According to the Tema Area Head, fear has become one of the tools that Satan is using to deter many people from accepting Jesus Christ into their lives.
Apostle Matthew Larbi Wettey said this at the opening of a 3-day Fasting and Prayer meeting for all ministers and wives in the Tema Area which took place at the Tema Community 12 Assembly church premises from December 5 to 7, 2017.
Giving an exposition on the theme for the Area’s 2017 Christmas Convention: “Fear Not, For Christ The Saviour Is Born To You” (Luke 2:10-11), which is to be held at District level, the Area Head explained that many unbelievers, particularly Muslims, could have given their lives to Christ but for the fear of some Christians to invade their space with the gospel or the fear that Muslim converts would be denounced by their families.
He further revealed that things that put fear into people include the fear of the future, death, poverty and fear of a curse. He, however, emphasized that “the solution to all these fears is Jesus Christ.”
Apostle Larbi Wettey, therefore, encouraged Christians, particularly ministers and wives, not to fear when they are attacked by their enemies but to be relentless in their efforts to propagate the unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ in order to transform lives.
“The power of the message should be felt in people’s heart so that they will ask, ‘what shall we do?’” he said.
The 3-day pre-Christmas Convention Prayer Meeting brought all ministers and wives in the Tema Area together to pray and strategize for the upcoming Christmas conventions. As part of the event, various messages are given based on the theme to equip ministers to deliver well during the conventions.
