The former Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Right Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey, has urged Christians, particularly members of the church, to remain humble no matter their social, economic or political status.
He said, the church uphold humility and Christians must strive to attain this virtue, which is important for social cohesion.
Rev. Martey was speaking at the 20th anniversary celebration and dedication of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Love Congregation, at North Kaneshie in Accra, on the theme, “Humility brings exaltation; Be humble.”
He said some people could not be given leadership positions because of their pride, adding such people would not use the opportunity to bring development to the people.
Rev. Martey advised Christians not to be selfish and not to grab what they did not deserve, adding that “self-promotions leads to shame”.
He said, “My brothers and sisters you need to humble yourself for God to lift you up,” adding that Jesus Christ taught Christians to humble themselves no matter their political affiliation, family or position they hold.
Rev. Martey said the church would not align itself with any political party, saying “the church does not belong to any political party”.
The Minister in charge of Love Congregation , Rev Daniel Edmund Kofi Asante, said the church had crossed the ecclesiastical life, and that the church would intensify its evangelism to win more souls for the Lord.
He said the church would help restore discipline to society, and appealed to Christians to embrace themselves for the task ahead which would demand their stewardship, time, energy and resources.
Rev. Asante asked church leaders to preach peace before, during and after the elections.
