A member of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) from the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI), Rev. Justice Ebenezer Aboagye has urged Christians to increase the hours for prayers so they could get closer to God.
According to him, if Christians devote more time to pray, it would kill lust and laziness, among things the flesh desires so they could walk on the path of God.
“We get more time for work, watching television and being on social media but when it is church programme, some Christians will never attend and those who will come will be late,” he noted.
Rev Aboagye said this in a sermon during the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) 2018 celebration at the Kaneshie District in Accra.
GPCC week is an annual week celebration aimed to bring together all Pentecostal and Charismatic members of the Council to fellowship together as a way to promote Unity in Christ.
The celebration brought together five churches as Kaneshie Theresa’s Zone as way to strengthen fellowship.
Speaking on the theme “Practical Holy Living: Evidence of a Transformed Life” which was taken from Ephesians 4:20-24, the man of God pointed out that, some Christians do not have time for the word of God which would help us grow spiritually and lead us to eternal life.
“Some Christians do not have time to read their bibles, they only pick their bibles on Sunday which will not help you to grow spiritually,” he noted.
He said, “People get time for frequent medical check-ups but do not get time for the bibles or better still spiritual check-ups.”
Expressing concern on how the world has gotten to, Pastor Aboagye said, the world has gotten to the point where people can easily get sex dolls to sleep with among other things which has taken Christians from the things of God, and urged Christians to be vigilant.
Touching on holiness, Rev. Aboagye stressed that, “We need holiness in our living”, adding that, holiness comes from the heart but not dressing clean.
He said Christians must be holy by getting closer to the word of God and setting themselves apart from worldly things.
“If soap makes a person clean, then those working at soap making industries are very clean but cleanliness is holiness which must not be underestimated,” he said.
The man of God stated that, whoever comes to God is a new creature, therefore, Christians should let Christ reflect in their lives.
