Make Personal Devotion A Daily Habit – Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah (Rtd) Tells Christians

The immediate-past Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah, has encouraged members and officers of the Church to consistently engage in personal devotions in their homes because it is a sure way to raise family altars.

According to him, the practice of personal devotion is infectious and, therefore, as one constantly engages in it, it affects all members of their household, adding that, this contributes to strengthening the local church for maximum impact in society.

Apostle Professor Onyinah was speaking during the opening of the 2023 Old Tafo Area Ministers and Officers’ Retreat (Apostolisaton) in the Mamponteng Zone on Wednesday, February 22, 2023, at the Mamponteng Central Assembly auditorium.

Exhorting the congregants on “Raising Family Altars” the former President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) quoted Genesis Chapter 12 and explained that Abraham, after his encounter with the Lord at Shechem, built an altar there to honour the Lord. He noted that the story teaches the believer the importance of daily communion with God.

Prof. Opoku Onyinah enlightened that family devotion is very necessary in the life of a believer because it demands dedication by earmarking a time to commune with the Lord.

“Along with reading, interaction, and instruction from the Scriptures, families often include a time of prayer, worship (singing), and personal application,” he added.

The renowned theologian further elaborated that Abraham’s act effectively impacted his family, as Isaac also took to imitate the steps of his father by building family altars. He inspired the congregation that this year’s theme is viable if only members will reposition themselves and develop a consistent communion with God through personal and family devotions.

The 2023 Old Tafo Area Ministers and Officers’ Retreat (Apostolisation), which kick-started on Wednesday, February 22, 2023, under the auspices of the Area Head, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful, was on the theme: “Repositioning the Local Church For Maximum Impact in the Nations” (Colossians 2:6-7; 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20). 

It was held at three zonal centres in the Area with Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah (Rtd) and Apostle Sylvester Arhin (Tamale Area Head) as main speakers.
