Ghanaians across the length and breadth of the country have been urged not to limit or restrict their mindset but enlarge it for ?God to do great things in their lives.?
General Overseer of the Charismatic Evangelistic Ministry (CEM) Rev Steve Mensah, delivering his Christmas message to his congregants at Accra last Tuesday, bemoaned the attitude of some Christians who always enter in a new year with an old mindset.
Preaching from the book of Matthew 9:16-17, the minister of the gospel said, ?God cannot put new ideas into restricted minds because as the scripture puts it you cannot put old wine into new winskine.?
?What you keep before your eyes would affect you,? he told the congregation numbering over 3000 stressing that it was high time Christians thought big and enlarged their horizon.
Rev Steve Mensah also challenged the congregants to change their environment and move to new places that would serve as a refreshing experience for them.
He charged Christians to strategically position themselves for the great things God was about to do for them in 2013.
Rev Mensah also admonished Ghanaians in general that as they prepare to go into 2013 ?what you make happen unto others, God would make happen unto you.?
He therefore charged all to endeavor to use any opportunity gotten to help the less privileged in society and not seek their parochial interest.
According to the minister of the gospel, many people are experiencing difficulties and challenges because they sowed bad seeds some time ago.
He explained bad seeds as sabotaging attitudes, false accusations, lies, laziness, backbiting among others.
?If you want what is good for someone, God would do same for you,? he said adding that God was not mocked and that ?whatsoever a man sows, that is what he reaps.?
The congregants were treated to melodious sounds from the Rehoboth temple choir and the CEM choir.
Every church member was after the Christmas service provided with goodies such as clothing, food and drinks.
The church members expressed appreciation to the church leadership for the honour done them and prayed for God?s guidance and provision for them.
