The Tarkwa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Daniel Okyere Walker, has advised Christian leaders on the importance of maintaining one’s standards and not yielding to the pressures of compromise.
Apostle Walker said this when he delivered an exhortation on the topic: “Compromise” during the Heads’ Session preceding the Global Ministers and Wives’ Conference 2024. The conference is taking place at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa-Fetteh.
In his sermon, Apostle Walker defined compromise as the lowering of standards to accept an option that was initially unacceptable. He used the biblical story of Pharaoh and Moses to illustrate his point, referencing several passages from the book of Exodus.
The Tarkwa Area Head highlighted four instances of compromise in the story. First, Pharaoh allowed the Israelites to worship God in Egypt. Second, he told them not to go far in their worship. Third, he asked only men to worship. Finally, he asked the Israelites to worship God without their belongings. In each instance, Moses resisted the compromise.
Apostle Walker stressed the importance of not compromising our faith, our zeal for service, or our standards. He encouraged Christians to be generous, pay tithes, give offerings, and bless their members.
He concluded by warning against compromise, citing 2 Corinthians 6:14-15.
The Global Ministers and Wives’ Conference, which is being held under the theme: “A People of God Unleashed To Transform Their World (1 Peter 2:9 and Acts 1:8),” was officially opened today (January 23) and is expected to close on January 26, 2024.
