Pastor Ebenezer Hagan, the national Youth Director of The Church of Pentecost, has charged the youth to see themselves as God’s arrows to take the nations for Christ.
He said this during his maiden visit to a mammoth Ashaiman Area Youth Ministry Joint service. The event which was held on Monday November 23, 2020 at the James Mckeown Memorial Temple, was also attended by the Area Head, Prophet David Kankam Beditor, who doubles as an Executive Council member of the Church.
Exhorting the youth on the topic, ‘Unleashed for Glorious Impact’, the Youth Director stressed that, the members are key agents in the implementation strategy of “Possessing the Nations Agenda” of the Church’s Vision 2023. “The church will continue to equip members for them to transform their homes, workplace, communities and everywhere they find themselves with values and principles of the Kingdom of God,” he said.
Pastor Ebenezer Hagan called on the youth to be fully grounded in Christ if they are to possess the nations for God.
The Youth Director stressed that, every member is very important and reminded the youth that every person they meet is a potential nation to possess. “God called Abraham as an individual but out of him came nations”, he added.
Quoting from Isaiah 49:1-3, he said “even before we were born, God knew us and called us by name and has made our mouth a sharp sword and our lives polished arrows,” to bring glory to Him. He added that the Youth Ministry’s role in the vision 2023 was for the young people in the church to be grounded. This means that God is equipping, preparing the youth and unleashing them into the world.
Pastor Hagan pointed out that, arrows travel into the future and they are thrown to places where warriors cannot go. He said arrows are released to dangerous places and territories. For this reason, the youth who are God’s arrows should get themselves ready for such militancy.
