The Vice Chancellor of Pentecost University, Apostle Professor Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua, has challenged Christians to be remoulded to live as a people of God.
According to him, God is looking forward to empowering and equipping his people for the work of ministry and, therefore, requires people who are prepared to be broken, melted, moulded and saturated to make a difference in this changing world.
Presenting a paper on the topic, “The Church as people of God,” at the ongoing November Heads’ meeting, comprising Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, National/Area Heads, Ministry Directors, VC/Principals and Deans of the church’s higher learning institutions, at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh, near Kasoa, Apostle Prof Agyapong-Kodua intimated that “like broken particles of clay, we can be remoulded to live as the people of God.”
He added that “the quest to be remoulded should not be based on mere obedience to laws but on a life yielded unto God and saturated by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.
“It is a life broken, melted, moulded and saturated by God that will make the difference God requires of us.”
The PU Vice Chancellor asserted that God desires a group he can call his people. He added that the church as the Holy City of God, the bride of God, the new Jerusalem, among other scriptural derivations, affirms that God’s call and invitation to humanity is not an afterthought but a carefully planned agenda beyond any advanced post-modern development.
Apostle Agyapong-Kodua also admonished that the church, as a people of God, must do away with sinful desires because they distort their real identity as children of God.
“Sin distorts God’s agenda of having a community that looks like him,” he said, adding that the purpose of the church is to live and showcase the righteousness of God to please him.
