The Walewale Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Norman Appiah-Danquah, has said that Christians should not struggle to live upright lives in a dark world because, by virtue of their belief in Christ, they have been made the light of the world.
Apostle Appiah-Danquah said this when he ministered to participants of the Walewale Zone during the recently-held Ministers and Officers’ Retreat (Apostolisation).
In his presentation, the Walewale Area Head stressed that whenever there are rot, corruption and sinful activities in the midst of Christians, it is an indication of the lack of the fear of God on the part of believers.
He further stated that believers who do not live in the fear of God, do not possess enough power to dispel away darkness.
According to him, lack of the fear of God is the root of godless lives in the body of Christ. Hence, to be well-repositioned in life to carry the presence of God, His power and glory for maximum impact, officers and members of the Church must uphold godliness.
“A godless church leader that does not fear the LORD is likely to mismanage tithes and offerings,” he said. Apostle Appiah-Danquah, therefore, charged Christians, particularly Church leaders, to uphold high moral values and embrace godliness; by so doing, they would dispel darkness in the world.
“The highest status any believer can attain is to be like Christ, putting on the form of godliness that carries the expressed image of God,” he said.
The 2023 Ministers and Officers Retreat (Apostolisation) was held at three zones, namely Walewale, Nakpanduri and Gbintiri, in the Area. Other speakers at the event were Pastor Daniel Frimpong Manso (Tepa Area Head) and Pastor Victor Asante Darko (New Site District Minister).
