Accra, June 17, GNA –
Reverend Joseph Obodai, a Retired Minister of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana
(PCG), on Sunday urged fathers to fortify themselves with the word of God to
enable to withstand the challenges that come with fatherhood.        

He said fatherhood was
a “profession” that was crucial in building a child’s self-esteem, emotional
stability and mental health, as well as ensuring a stable family.

Rev. Obodai was
preaching to commemorate the Men’s Sunday at the Gethsemany Congregation of the
PCG at Achimota in Accra which also coincided with the Fathers Day celebration.

He said Christian
fathers must endeavour to abide by the doctrines of their faith; which is to do
the will of God, adding; “surrender your lives to God and He shall never
disgrace you.”

He said: “The word of
God is so powerful that when you declare it with faith, it shall surely
manifest and perform wonders in your lives. Take hold of it and use it to
change your circumstances. Don’t go to people to bathe you with oil, you will
gain nothing from that.” 

Rev. Obodai urged
fathers to be responsible, take good care of their families, and never abandon
their children because that is distasteful to God.

He said Christians
must be hospitable and kind to others and avoid actions that would bring
disgrace to God.

“Build attitudes that
are pleasing in the sight of God and win more souls for Christ through your
actions,” he said.
