The Vice President of the Apostolic Church Nigeria and LAWNA Territorial Chairman, Pastor (Dr) Emmanuel Segun Awojide has emphasised the need for leaders to be wholly committed in their service to God and humanity
Pastor Awojide made the call in his welcome address during the ministers’ Conference/Convention that started on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, at the Church Headquarters, Ketu Lagos, ahead of the Church’s Annual LAWNA International Convention which begins this Saturday, July 31 to Friday, August 6
Pastor Awojide warned that service without total consecration and commitment is unacceptable to God, and as such unproductive and unfruitful.
He pleaded with leaders both in the spiritual and secular fields to give the totality of their lives to render service that would enhance the growth, development of the nation and the Church.
Consecration according to him demands determination and total commitment to the service of God and humanity.
He said, “People in service must first consecrate themselves to God before their service could be acceptable.”
The LAWNA Chairman said everything within and without the leaders and the led must be consecrated to God for their services to God and humanity to be acceptable.
He said the leaders and the followers in the Church and in the nation must consecrate their financial resources, time, and strength towards the development of the nation and the Church.
The cleric pointed out that anyone that would be on the Lord’s side would have to live a life of separation, dedication to God, and dedication to God’s service.
He told the ministers’ conference that consecration is the price they have to pay to receive God’s blessing, to wrought signs and miracles, and be fulfilled in their ministry.
