Apostle Ashie Kotei of Cape Coast Apostle area conducted the last of his scheduled youth service for the youth of Cape Coast, Abura Dunkwa, Mankessim and Yankumasi districts at the Cape Coast Central Church on Sunday October 27, 2019. The service which was attended by the respective Districts Rectors and Deputy District Rectors of the invited districts also had 209 youth from the various districts in attendance.
Apostle Ashie Kotei read the bible text for the youth service from Job 42:5, ‘I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you.’
Apostle Ashie Kotei heartily welcomed the youth as he expressed his joy in how the youth responded to the invitation to the service. He called on the youth to do the work of God, just as the choristers and the ministers do their part in the House of God. “My dear youth, let us live righteous lives and flee from fornication, it is an abomination before God. Let us not exchange our glory for food and money. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all things shall be added unto you”
Apostle Ashie Kotei elaborated on Job’s worthy, righteous and God-fearing life, which he could have easily given up following all the pains and infirmities that came his way. But Job realized that God only is righteous, holy and exalted above everything, and does good all the time when he sought after the Lord and found Him.
Apostle Ashie Kotei admonished that “We are not more righteous than God. He is Almighty and we must give Him respect, listen to His word and do His will. Jesus did all that His Father told Him, do you obey your parents as the commandment of God with a promise requires from you? Do not disrespect your parents”.
“Let the will of God be seen in you. Portray this by being humble, having faith, following God always and glorifying Him in your body” Apostle Ashie Kotei emphasized. He further urged the youth to read the bible, “You have to read the bible, understand and preach to others. Let us eagerly expect the return of Christ and pray always without ceasing.”
District Rectors Asare and Essel of Assin Fosu and Abura Dunkwa respectively assisted in the service.
