On the 12th of June, 2021, brothers and sisters of the Anyinam congregation united with members from other congregations in the district for the second time in a joint service with Lead Apostle Ohene-Saffo. He was accompanied by Apostle Robert Asampong and District Rector Dwamena Ofori Emmanuel.
The text word for the united service was taken from Revelations 3:17, “Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ – and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked”
History of Laodicea
Lead Apostle said “Laodicea was a country rich in all ways. They had food in abundance and had everything they needed. They lacked nothing when it came to material things on earth. Besides all these blessings from the Lord, their heart was filthy. They did what pleased them and forgot about the ways of the Lord. The Lord queried them that He knew their works, that they were neither cold nor hot, and He will spew them out of His mouth if they did not repent.
Lead Apostle Ohene-Saffo continued, “God has given each member a spiritual gift to benefit the entire congregation. This was bestowed to us by His amazing grace. When the Lord blesses us, we must always remember that such blessings are from God.”
He questioned, what does a rich man take to his grave when he dies? Answering himself, he said “Nothing. So, if there is something to fight for on this earth, it is the grace of God because the earth and all its goodies will pass away but the word of God will never pass.”
Christ Sacrifice and the Holy communion
Concerning the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, He said “He that drinketh my blood and body will have eternal life. We come before the Lord all the time to receive food for our souls and also to receive forgiveness of our sins. He stressed “don’t stay away from Holy communion because you feel you are a sinner. Christ is here to purify you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Humble yourself and allow God to transform your life. Do not veer off the narrow road, because wide is the road that leads to destruction.”
Lead Apostle Ohene-Saffo ended his sermon by admonishing the congregants to work hard and remain faithful as the Lord will bless the work of their hands.
