In the spirit of oneness, celebrating the dedication and virtues of the first messengers of the church in Ghana 50 years ago, Lead Apostle Oppong-Brenya conducted a festive divine service for the Debiso district at the Adjoafua Congregation on Sunday 27th October, 2019.
The text word for the service was taken from Jude 1:20-21: ‘But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy spirit, keep yourselves in the Love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ until eternal life’.
“My Brethren in our Lord Jesus Christ, the seed that was sown 50 years ago has borne fruits and today we are harvesting the efforts of our fathers. This was never on a silver platter; we did see some difficulties. However, God made it possible, using unheralded personalities and societal misfits. Today, we are harvesting the fruits of their sacrifice. Brethren, 50 years has gone by; let us show the little ones the way to Christ so they can continue the work we are doing today” said the Lead Apostle as he introduced his sermon.
Explaining the text word, he illustrated the essence of peace, unity and togetherness in Jesus Christ, using the different parts of the human body and how they interrelate their functions in unison. He told the congregation that regardless of being a minister, chorister or member of the orchestra, we are all one in Christ; we all have parts to play to help grow the church.
The Lead Apostle said: “We must remember that as followers of Christ, we shall pass through difficulties, because He suffered same difficulties. We must grow in our holy faith and ask for the grace of the Lord to strengthen us, because without the grace, no one can make it to heaven.”
“May the Good Lord help you strengthen your faith. May He shower His mercies upon you and He bring unity among you. May He guide you as we celebrate 50 years of the New Apostolic Church in Ghana.” concluded the Lead Apostle as he brought his sermon to an end.
The service was supported by Apostle Hayford Edward Nzimah, District Elder Emmanuel Adomako (Bremang District) and District Evangelist Solomon Kwarteng (Debiso ‘A’ District).
