Elder Evans Amenyo Sallah, Assistant Achimota Area Youth Ministry Leader of The Church of Pentecost, has asserted that life is not a game of chance, rather it must be yielded to God and talents and gifts put to good use if one desires to live a successful life.
“The youth of the contemporary world don’t want to work but want to earn. Why should we resort to betting and other forms of foul means to get rich when God has given us the wisdom and the power to make genuine wealth?” he quizzed.
Elder Amenyo Sallah said this during a Youth Ministry Joint Service organized by the Achimota Zone of the Achimota Area on October 26, 2019, at the Central Assembly church auditorium.
Speaking on the topic “But You,” Elder Sallah advised youth members to know the times and live their lives with all diligence for Christ Jesus will certainly come. “We are living in an era where men are defining which behaviours are sinful or not. People are now deciding for God instead of accepting the standards of God,” he added.
Highlighting on the purpose of God for one’s life, Elder Evans Sallah stated that “the youth are powerful instruments in the hands of God to be used for His great purposes.”
He, therefore, advised young people to shun laziness, pornography, masturbation etc. because they would make them unholy and ineffective in their services to God and humanity. “Are you available for the master’s use? Which role are you playing in the body of Christ?” he rhetorically charged.
Quoting from 2Timothy 4:5, the Assistant Area Leader urged the youth to live their lives to reflect their Christian values so as to possess the nations for Christ Jesus.
He also cautioned them not to heed to the deceptions that stem from hedonism, secularism, relativism worldviews; homosexuality and other worldly philosophies that promotes pleasure whilst robbing them of their righteousness and joy in Christ Jesus.
“God’s standards are very high and it will never be lowered to accommodate homosexuality or any other deviant sexual behaviour. For to whom who is pure, God will be pure to him or her,” he asserted.
Elder Evans Sallah advised the youth against ingratitude and admonished them to appreciate every little thing that people do for them.
“God is counting on you so don’t lose your saltiness. Avail yourself and get involved in the work of God for your labour won’t be in vain,” he concluded.
The service was attended by Youth Ministry leaders from the various districts within the Achimota Zone.
