Speaker urges clergy to concentrate on the gospel

Accra, Sept. 11,
GNA – Mr. Edward Doe Adjaho, the Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament, has advised
professionals especially the Clergy, to go about their core businesses without
interfering with that of others.

He said God in his
own wisdom had assigned direct professions to various people, adding that: “We
all must focus on our areas of specialization, while we allow others to also do
what they know to do best.”

The Speaker was
addressing the 2016 Triennial National Rally of the Global Evangelical Church
National Choirs’ Union at Kpando, in the Volta Region.

He said some
members of the Clergy instead of concentrating on their calling as Ministers of
the Gospel, had turned into politicians, trying to speak to issues they were
not abreast of.

The Speaker
commended the leadership and Pastors of the Global Evangelical Church for
remaining committed to their callings and not involving in unnecessary
commentaries.

The Right Rev. Dr.
Setorwu Ofori, the Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church in a sermon,
themed: “Radiating God’s Kingdom on Earth”, said God called everyone into
ministry and as children of God, “We must live Christ-like lifestyles wherever
we find ourselves.”

The Moderator
appealed to all to use their gifts and professions to the glory of God, adding
that, “Wherever you are serving, radiate God’s glory.”

He abhorred the
practice where some Christians indulged in co-habitation, alcoholism and other
immoral lifestyles, which did not glorify God.

On the upcoming
elections, the Moderator encouraged all to go out in their numbers and cast
their votes, saying, “Only for candidates who promise you hard work and not
those who promise to give you food or even to feed you.”

He cautioned that
nobody should engage in any form of vandalism but go about their civic
responsibility in an orderly manner “since the God that we serve is the God of
order.”

Rt. Rev. Dr. Ofori
appealed to those who planned to use various desperate means to travel abroad
in search of non-existing greener pastures to stay back and use their God-given
talents here.

Rev. M.S.K. Lanyo,
the outgoing National Coordinator for the Church Choirs’ Union, in his report,
registered his gratitude to God for his sustenance and that of the Church, and
for the opportunity given him to serve.

He urged the choirs
to humble themselves to the leadership of the Church, strive for holiness,
remain united and work hard to attain “the eternal crown that awaits the
children of God.”
