AME Zion Church Winneba District holds Conference

Senya Beraku (C/R), Aug. 8, GNA – Reverend
Doctor Emmanuel Kweku Badu Essilfie, Presiding Elder of Winneba District of the
African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church, has called on the society to
help the youth to unearth their talents.

He said talents were gift and wealth from God
and there was the need to help the youth who were the future of the country to
discover, develop and utilize them towards the manifestation of national
development and to the Glory of God.

Rev. Dr. Essilfie made the call when he
delivered a sermon to climax a five-day conference the District held at Senya

The conference was on the theme, “Refocusing
on Our Purpose” and it was in preparation towards the general Western African
Episcopal Zion Church West Ghana Conference to be held this month.

The Winneba District is made up of 20 Churches
in Central Region, including Kasoa, Awutu Beraku, Senya, Bawjiase, Ansaful,
Ojobi, Akotie, Apam, Agona Swedru, Paapase, and Winneba.

Almighty  God created mankind for
a purpose, but it is clear that human-beings have depart from that purpose,
allowing the influence  of the world to
cripple  us to do things which are
against the will of the  Lord, Rev Dr
Essilfie said.

“Let us go back to our roots as human beings
since we are the salt of the earth and light of the world, to be steadfast in
the lord and to focus on his will”.

He said freedom of the church means that
people should always live on the principles of God, by doing his will and not
to embark on acts base on human right that will not help to attain salvation.

“I appeal to you therefore brothers, by the
mercy of God to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable
to God, and transformed by the renewal of our minds, doings things acceptable
and perfect,” he said.

Rev. Dr. Essilfie underscored the need for
humans to refrain from all immoral activities that could lead them to
destruction and to refocus on their purpose on this earth, by leading lives
worthy to the glory of God to attain salvation
