God Rewards Faithfulness – Apostle Eric Nyamekye

The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has urged Christians, particularly Church leaders, to serve the Lord diligently in order to obtain divine blessings.

Admitting to the challenges that come with Christian service, the Chairman encouraged church leaders to remain resolute in faith and serve the Lord with gladness, stressing, “God is a rewarder, but He does not just reward anyone; He rewards faithfulness!”

Apostle Nyamekye said this on December 8, 2021, during a meeting with ministers and officers of the La Area at Dr. Thomas Wyatt Temple as part of his working tour of the Greater-Accra region.

He noted with scriptural references to Hebrews 11: 6; Hebrews 13:7 and Job 5:8, that officers are great pillars of the Church, who assist full-time ministers in the day-to-day administration of the Church at the local level. The good news, he indicated, is that the officers offer their services to the Church at no cost. 

“The Church of Pentecost may not be capable of paying all of you for your tireless efforts, but the God, who called you and whom you serve, will reward you accordingly,” he said.

The Chairman assured them that anyone who walks closely with God and serves Him diligently would never be disappointed because God rewards those who are faithful.

He, however, observed that often people situate God’s blessing to the amount of money one has or the luxuries they can afford. But this is not always so because God’s blessings are far more worth than what money could buy, he explained.

He stated: “The blessing of God is more than just having money; it may come in different forms. The favour of God, for instance, opens many doors and grants us access to divine health, peace of mind, and other essential things that money cannot buy. Sometimes, the Lord rewards our service to Him by granting our children wisdom and a good retentive memory to enable them excel in their academics and attain educational heights that we can only dream of.”

He, therefore, advised the officers to take a cue from their forebears who served the Lord wholeheartedly and received divine blessings that transcended generations.

The Chairman said that every role one plays in the Church is significant and must not be overlooked since they all contribute to the growth of the Church. He also advised the officers not to seek “financial incentives” from the Church but look on to God to reward them for their good works.

Apostle Nyamekye also read Ezra 8:23-34 to charge the officers to be faithful to their call and strive to give a good account of the “sacred” human and material resources entrusted to their care.

The Chairman further called on the ministers to bridge the gap between them and their officers by genuinely seeking their welfare.

He also advised the ministers to take particular interest in the Children’s Ministry, saying: “You have not been made a pastor or leader over the adults alone, but over the children as well.”

Apostle Nyamekye said that since children and the youth are the Church’s largest constituents, church leaders should endeavour to give them more opportunities for service in the Church.
