Pastor Joseph Kyei delivered a sermon titled, ‟Receiving Pastor for Pastor’s Reward,” reading from Matthew 10: 41 and Ephesians 4: 11-13, he charged Christians to wholeheartedly receive pastors because they are Christ’s gift to His church.
He noted that receiving a pastor involves providing him and his family a suitable accommodation (2 Kings 4:8-11), supporting him in his ministry (Judges 17:10), living in peace with the pastor (Romans 12: 18, 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13), praying and interceding for him (Ephesians 6:19).
He mentioned that because pastors are carriers of divine blessing and favour, when Christians receive them, they receive blessings from the Lord (Numbers 6:24-26).
He prayed and encouraged Christians to receive pastors as their spiritual fathers and support them in ministry.
The programme had in attendance the area pastorate and their wives as well as members and officers in Poano District, among others.
