The Director of the Men’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost (PEMEM), Apostle Emmanuel Ofei Ankra-Badu, has stated that, what makes transformation possible is one’s ability to materialize his or her vision.
He said this during his maiden visit to the Teshie-Nungua Area of The Church of Pentecost on Friday, April 26, 2019 at the Agnes Boahemaa Gyimah Temple.
Speaking on the theme, “Man as an Agent of Transformation,” with scripture references from 2 Kings 6:1-6 and Romans 12:1-2, the PEMEM Director stated that, God created humans as forward-moving beings, and that forward movement requires vision.
“Transformation occurs when you accept that your present state is not encouraging,” he admonished.
He challenged men to aim at advancing God’s Kingdom and see things as God sees it. He advised men to be visionary and have conviction to be able to lead others. He therefore urged all men to share their vision with others and work as a team.
Apostle Ankra-Badu encouraged men not to get entangled in dubious behaviours that will deprave them of God’s glory.
“View yourself as a problem solver. God can solve problems through you. Accept the responsibility of the problem and solve it,” he added.
The PEMEM Director asserted that, God first prepared all the people He used. He, therefore, stressed the need for men to stay humble and have teachable spirits in order to be well prepared to accomplish their visions on earth.
He encouraged men to make intentional effort to transform every spheres of society- the family, media, education, local church and community, saying, “Don’t just sit down and complain; do something.”
Apostle Emmanuel Ofei Ankra-Badu also admonished men to invest time in their marriage, help the needy in society and live a lifestyle worthy of emulation.
