Apostle Professor Samuel Asuming-Brempong, the Chairman of the Executive Council of the Great Commission Church International (GCCI) Ghana, has cautioned men of God against the covet for titles.
He explained that, the titles in themselves were not evil, but when men of God begin to covet for it; forgetting that they were servants of God, that makes it evil.
“So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do,” he cited from the bible.
“Let’s look for the blessings from God.
“And how do we get the blessings? It comes only when you become a true unprofitable servant of God,” Apostle Prof Asuming-Brempong stated in his remarks at Bunso at the 26th Annual General Council Meeting of the GCCI.
The four-day meeting on the theme “Imitating Jesus Christ”, is being attended by over 120 participants including all members of GCCI Ghana Executive Council and their spouses, all trustees, ordained pastors, presiding elders, and delegates from Togo.
Apostle Prof Asuming-Brempong said the lack of volunteerism spirit in the body of Christ was hampering church growth and ministry work.
He mentioned that most workers in the house of God such as the choir, ushers and temple keepers want to be paid.
He said many Christians were not doing memorial service to God, just as Cornelius, the centurion did in the bible.
“Do the work of God and leave behind a memorial, Apostle Prof Asuming-Brempong added.
He said God’s idea of creating man was to have fellowship with Him (God), and for man to serve him and to take charge of his creation.
He urged Christians to seek to know the will of God and to obey it; stating that “God delights in our obedience to Him”.
