Shepherd Eric Donkor at the altar
2 January 2020

Christmas is Christians across the world including New Apostolics. This year the story was no different as the Nkawkaw Central New Apostolic Church celebrated theirs. On 25th December, 2019, Shepherd Eric Donkor conducted a divine service at Nkawkaw Central church which was to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.

The text word was taken from Mathew 1:23, “A Virgin will become pregnant and have a son, and he will be called Immanuel” (which means, “God is with us”).

Elaborating on the text word, Shepherd Eric Donkor made it clear to the congregation that Jesus Christ is the true son of God and so those that seek Him will find Him and enjoy the goodness that is in Him.

“God named His Son Immanuel, meaning He is always with us, brothers and sisters. Do we actually feel that Jesus Christ is with us, if not, then we should make our corrections” said the Shepherd. He added up that for someone to feel the presence of God and Jesus Christ requires holiness and sanctification.  Without these things there is no way that Christ can draw near to someone.

“Christ was been born today, let’s use this opportunity to make reconciliation in our lives” said Shepherd Eric Donkor. He concluded by urging the congregants to be tolerant and submissive and also develop the Spirit given which is the foundation of Christianity.

The service was supported by Priest Awuah and Priest Ahenkora Frank.
