Rev Quaye said the youth are exacerbated by wealth, signs and wonders and fame and power to the neglect of the teachings of the Bible, saying it is prudent to adhere to God’s will for transformational breakthrough.
Rev Quaye gave the advice in Accra at a thanksgiving service to climax the 30th anniversary of the United Church Youth Fellowship, Teshie Estate on the theme: “I am Who I am, I am Unique.”
He explained that the theme was critical because it gives authority about God’s power in our lives where God sent Moses to go and liberate the people of Israel from the bondage of the Egyptians as his authority over them.
He said Christianity has been reduced to material possessions, a situation where the youth want to acquire wealth at all length for fame and power.
“We are who we are not because of our beauty, wealth or religion but as a result of God’s grace, and Christians of today are confused about who they are due to pleasures of life,” he added.
He urged the youth to pursue the fight for faith, righteousness, love, patience and meekness for salvation because the world is associated with so many negative activities.
Rev Quaye said it is reckless for the youth to sacrifice their relationship with God for worldly pleasures, since it offers nothing to the youth and should not be allowed to ruin the future of one’s life.
He admonished that the youth need to be engaged, mobilised and empowered to become leaders and agents of social change, devoid of social vices.
Mr Israel Agbleta, President of Youth Fellowship of United Church, Teshie Estate said the body was established in August 1986.
He said the youth has seen 30 years of existence, touching many lives and leading many to Christ and winning more souls.
Mr Agbleta said the fellowship launched the anniversary on August 14, and embarked on activities such as float, bible quiz, talk on power of faith, fellowship night, revival, games and united praise.
