The Abuakwa District Pastor of The Church of Pentecost, Reverend Matthew Gbeku, has called on Ghanaians to cultivate a culture of love and unity to foster peace and development in the country. During a Church service at Ho-Fiave Central Assembly of The Church of Pentecost, Rev. Gbeku emphasized the importance of brotherly love, saying that there is no need to discriminate based on race or social status since we are all one people with a common destiny.
In his sermon, he quoted from Hebrews 13:1 and Romans 12:9-10, urging the congregation to “Let brotherly love continue” and to “outdo one another in showing honour.” He emphasized that love should be genuine and that we should abhor what is evil and hold fast to what is good. He advised the congregation to reposition brotherly love everywhere they go for maximum impact.
Rev. Gbeku also spoke about the importance of serving others, citing the example of Barnabas who served as both a sponsor and mentor to the Apostle Paul. He encouraged the congregants to be like Barnabas, who looked for Paul in the wilderness and brought him to the house of God. He emphasized that we should never underrate anybody in life, for tomorrow is unknown.
The Abuakwa District Pastor also urged the members to keep with the Church’s doctrines, especially the payment of Tithe, and to honor it faithfully as it was a covenant with God. He emphasized that those who honor it religiously would not want in life as God would open the heaven doors for them.
In conclusion, Rev. Gbeku charged the congregants to worship God with humility and faith, and it shall be well with them. For the most part, his sermon was a call to action for Ghanaians to embrace love, unity, and service to others, which are essential for the growth and development of the country.
