Mrs. Gladys Nana Yaa Animah Oduro, wife of the Yennyawoso District Minister of The Church of Pentecost, has advised Christians to commit themselves to divine knowledge acquisition to sail through in their quest to take territories for Christ.
She explained that knowledge is power and that whoever is destitute of it falls prey to the deceit of the devil and eventually perishes.
She said this in a sermon titled: “Equipping Men to Possess the Nations” on Sunday, June 19, 2022, when she fellowshipped with the members of Grace Assembly to cap off the week-long national celebration of the Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM).
Taking her main scriptures from 1 Corinthians 4:20 and Ephesians 6:10-17, Mrs. Oduro mentioned that the church is an equipping centre where Christians are girded up for every task assigned to them.
According to her, whoever goes to church and avails themselves to the teachings of God, becomes fit in all spheres of life because they are exposed to holistic teachings.
Mrs. Oduro, whose message touched on all aspects of human’s life, further noted that possessing the nations agenda of the Church can only be realised with power, but not just a mere talk. The power, on the other hand, she said, is found in the word of God. She, thus, charged Christians to be filled with the word and the knowledge of God in these evil times where everything points to the fact that the second coming of Christ is imminent, saying, “The devil fears those who have the word of God within them.”
She added that those with an in-depth knowledge of God and His words stay put at the Lord’s feet, no matter the circumstances and diligently apply themselves to the word for breakthrough.
She also expressed the need for Christians to maintain good health by adopting good eating habit and exercising regularly.
Reading from Genesis 18:19 and Malachi 2:15, Mrs. Gladys Nana Yaa Animah Oduro urged parents to make a determined effort to train their children in the way of the Lord. She cautioned that failure to do so will deprive them of God’s blessings.
She blamed streetism and waywardness of many children on lack of good parental care and broken homes and strongly advised married couples against divorce, saying, “It is easier to build a strong Christian home than to repair a broken home.”
