Rely on God to impact your generation—Pastor advises Christians
Christians have been encouraged to impact their generation and have influence in a fast changing world, heading into the new year.
According to the Head pastor of Grace Chapel International, Wisdom Dafeamekpor, the only way to live a significant mark in today’s world is by seeking the face of God.
In seeking God's kingdom, Rev. Wisdom stressed that “to seek the face of God and expand our territory or influence. Our influence must be felt by our generation.Our Christian values must make a positive impact on the world." he told a fully packed church congregation on 31st Watch night service.
Speaking on the message ahead of the new year; “Jabez Prayer Experience” and backing it with biblical quotation from 1 Chronicles 4 – 9, Rev Dafeamekpor drew comparisons of Jabez in the bible who was born out of pain and also had a cursed life.
However, the pastor explains that he changed his situation by looking up to God and pouring out his hearts unto Him; “God and pray to Him, your solution is in God, when you are faced with bad experiences.” he advised.
Synonymous with every 31ST Watch night service, most churches are filled with large patrons and the Grace Chapel International in Accra was no exception.
The main service was preceded with praises, worship and prayers to usher in the new year, as well as testimonies were also taken from some church members to motivate and rekindle the faith of the congregation.
Prior to the start of his preaching, the church connected with its branches outside the country in USA,Liberia and South Africa and exchanged greetings with the various congregations through its live streaming.
Members were exhorted to increase their influence in their world or on their generation.
The church service was also interspersed with a choreograph by “Supernatural Revolution” who brought down the auditorium with their dance moves and message urging Christians to give their lives to God.
The night was crowned with praise, singing and dancing as the new year finally struck, with congregants exchanging pleasantries and wishing each other well for the new year.
