The Presence of God Makes The Difference – Apostle Samuel Obuobi Asserts

The General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Gyau Obuobi, has emphasised that the presence of God is a distinguishing mark of any flourishing Christian. He stressed, “It is the presence of God that makes the difference and brings results.”

Apostle Samuel Obuobi made this assertion today during a meeting with ministers and wives of the Kaneshie Area, held at the Bethel Assembly church auditorium as part of the ongoing Area Officers’ Retreat (Apostolisation).

Speaking on the topic “When The Minister Fails in His Duty,” with 1 Chronicles 15:1-3 as his foundational text, he explained that one of the gravest mistakes Saul made during his tenure as king of Israel was not restoring the Ark of the Covenant, which represented the presence of God among His people.

He emphasised that Saul was bound to fail because he lacked the presence of God, which would have made his reign successful. According to Apostle Samuel Obuobi, David had a successful reign because he sought the Ark of the Covenant and ensured its return.

“You cannot be a good leader without the ark, which represents the presence of God. It is God’s presence that brings results and fruitfulness,” he stated.

He urged ministers and church leaders to be carriers of God’s presence to make a maximum impact in their leadership roles.

Advising church leaders to cultivate the presence of God through fervent prayer, fasting, Bible study, personal devotions, and other spiritual exercises, he cautioned that “Administration is part of leadership, but it is not the only important aspect. Our foremost priority should be to be carriers of God’s presence.”

Apostle Samuel Obuobi also encouraged them to make intentional efforts to prepare adequately for services, ensuring they always carry God’s presence to every meeting they attend. “Always attend every meeting with God’s presence. Go with the Ark!” he charged.

Furthermore, the General Secretary advised them to remain committed to faithfully discharging their calling until the end. To achieve this, he suggested leading lives of contentment and avoiding unnecessary comparisons.

“God has a purpose and plan for you and your ministry, so do not compare yourself to others. Only focus on discharging your calling faithfully,” he advised.
