The Youth Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Ebenezer Hagan, has challenged young people to take inspiration from the life of Timothy and let it be an example to them.
Pastor Hagan said this when he addressed the youth of Sekondi Area of the Church during a working visit to the Area,
Drawing on several scriptural references such as Acts 16:1-3, 2 Timothy 3:15, 2 Timothy 1:4-6, 2 Timothy 3:10, and Philippians 2:19-22, to encourage young people to be true disciples of God, Pastor Hagan assured the young people that their destiny cannot be cancelled if they are with God.
“The Lord is not looking for just any young person, but a young person who fears the Lord, has consistent fellowship with the Lord through His word and prayer, and is ready for what God wants to use them for, rather than just waiting,” he said.
Using the life of young Timothy as a case study, Pastor Hagan drew out these three main lessons that young people must learn from: Timothy, the disciple; Timothy, the brother of note among the saints, and Timothy, the son/mentee of Paul.
“In conclusion, let us all take a cue from the life of young Timothy, a true disciple of God who was mentored by Paul and became a brother of note among the saints. May we all be poised for maximum impact, drawing inspiration from the word of God and consistent fellowship with Him through His word and prayer,” he said.
Present at the meeting were Apostle James T. Tetteh, Mrs. Priscilla Hagan (wife of the Youth Director) and a section of the Sekondi Area pastorate.
