Delivering the word of God at the event, Reverend Dr. Stephen Yenusom Wengam, General Superintendent , Assemblies of God Ghana admonished the servants of God to be mindful of their responsibilities as preachers of holiness and righteousness .
According to Reverend Dr. Stephen Wengam, Pastors must be preachers of righteousness, be God Fearing and shun sin while offering holy sacrifices and engaging in excellent relationship with God.
He said in the Midst of sin, Noah lived an exemplary life as the most righteous man in his days as captured in Genesis 6:13 “And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth”.
He indicated that righteous living attracts favor from God, promotes supernatural preservation, and divine blessing whiles attracting daily provision from God.
He said Christians could also practice righteousness and enjoy life as well. “As Christians you can be fashionable in holiness, you can chill in holiness. Whoever tells you Christians cannot live righteous lives and chill as well is not telling you the truth. You can chill while practicing holiness and not exposing yourselves to sinful acts, he said.
