Live To Impact Your Generation – Apostle Obuobi Urges Christians

The General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Gyau Obuobi, has encouraged Christians to strive to make a lasting impact on humanity.

He emphasised that it is the will of God for believers to have a positive influence on the world and future generations.

During the live broadcast of ‘Special Evening Service With the Chairman’ on PENT TV on Sunday, May 26, 2024, Apostle Gyau Obuobi delivered a sermon on the topic, “Maximum Impact,” stressing the duty of Christians to have a much greater impact on their generation and beyond.

“One of God’s purposes for His children on earth is for them to have an impact on their generation. It is never His expectation for us to live through this world without affecting our generation and the ones yet unborn,” he said, adding, “We should aim not just to pass through this life but be determined to make our mark in this world of evil and corruption.”

Quoting Kevin Kruse’s statement that, “Life is about making impact, not making income,” the clergyman explained that money is good but life goes beyond making money, highlighting the necessity of being a channel of blessings to others.

“If God blesses us, it is not for our selfish interest, but also to help others,” he stated, citing the story of Abraham in Genesis 12:3 as example.

Drawing from biblical references such as 1 Peter 1:3 and 1 Corinthians 1:4-7 the General Secretary explained that Christians have the potential to make a significant impact on society.

“By reason of the seed of God and the Holy Spirit in us, we are able to impact the world, we are able to change our societies,” he stated.

Defining impact as affecting one’s generation positively and leaving a legacy, Apostle Obuobi urged Christians to leave an indelible mark wherever they go in this world by bringing transformation into their spheres and having an influence on their generation.

The General Secretary highlighted the fleeting nature of life and the urgency of taking action now to make a meaningful impact, saying, “Life is very short. Today we are here but tomorrow we are not. Therefore, the time to act is now.”

Life, according to Apostle Obuobi, is not about how long one lives but it’s about how impactful they were and how well they lived, contrasting the examples of Jesus, whose short time on earth had a profound and lasting impact on humanity, with Methuselah, who lived a long life but left behind no legacy. He noted that albeit longevity is good, it is nothing if not accompanied by a legacy of impact.

“Our time may be short, but our impact can be great,” he stressed.

Apostle Gyau Obuobi emphasised the need for sacrifices and willingness to pay the price in order to make a maximum impact. He cited examples from the Bible, such as Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:6-8) and Abraham (Genesis 12:1,4), who made significant sacrifices in their efforts to impact lives positively. The level of impact, according to him, is directly related to the sacrifices one is willing and able to make.

He attributed the limited impact of Christians to their inability to make the necessary sacrifices and pay the required prices. He urged them to be willing to sacrifice their comfort, time, pleasure, sleep, food, and money in their pursuit of making a significant impact on humanity.
