Pastor Emmanuel Awojide, Vice-President of the Apostolic Church Nigeria, has called on both spiritual and secular leaders to render service that would enhance the growth and development of the nation and the Church.
Awojide, also the Chairman, Lagos and Western/Northern Areas (LAWNA) of the church, said that God demands total consecration from all the leaders, both spiritual and secular.
He made the assertions at the Ministers’Conference/Convention, ahead of the Church’s Annual LAWNA International Convention, slated for Saturday at the Church Headquarters, Ketu in Lagos.
Awojide, in a statement by Mr. Tunde Adebisi, the LAWNA Territorial Press Secretary, on Thursday, warned that service without total consecration was unacceptable to God, describing such as “unproductive and unfruitful”.
He then urged the leaders to give the totality of their lives to render service that would enhance the growth, development of the Church in particular and the country in general.
According to him, consecration to God demands determination and total commitment to the services of God and humanity.
“People in service must first consecrate themselves to God before their services can be acceptable,” he said.
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.
Awojide said that leaders and their followers in the Church and in the nation must also consecrate their financial resources, time, and strength toward the developmental programmes.
According to him, all humans and non-humans are to be given to God in total consecration.
Awojide said anyone that would be on the Lord’s side must live a life of separation, dedicated to God, and separated for his service.
He said that consecration was the price spiritual leaders have to pay to receive God’s blessings to wrought signs and wonders and be fulfilled in their respective ministry. (NAN)
