Youth to fear God and keep His Commandments-Bishop Evelyn Sunu
The youth are reminded to have the fear of God, keep His Commandments, trust and serve Him in faithfulness and with reverence.
They are also advised to obey their parents, those placed in authority over them, conduct themselves wel , show unconditional love to all, maintain purity of heart and depend on the word of God.
Lady Bishop Evelyn Candace Sunu, the founder and leader of God’s Glorious Ambassadors International Church, Accra, in an interview with The Spectator, said the fear of God was lost to Ghanaians, starting from those in authority to the least, a situation she said would not help in building up the youth.
She likened the youth to the seed of the land which had been planted to bear good fruits in the future, failure to which the progress and the future of the country would be lost.
Bishop Sunu said the youth must walk in the integrity of the word, desist from indecent lifestyles and humble themselves because they would be handed the mantle of leadership.
She said it was unfortunate that the youth had forgotten about God and rather dedicated their lives to idol worship in order to amass wealth, a situation which was leading them to destruction and untimely death.
Bishop Sunu lamented that the youth had allowed materialism to take the centre stage in their lives, and were compelled to commit grievous crimes like murder, immoral acts, greed for money and laziness among others.
She said though the youth felt lazy to work, they were on the contrary eager to amass wealth through occultism, and were not bothered about the grave consequences of such acts.
Bishop Sunu reminded them not to waste their precious time on the acquisition of wealth since none would carry anything away from this world.
She said though the truth was bitter, it must be told, adding that the youth must take delight in doing what pleased God and acceptable in His sight.
Bishop Sunu called on the leadership of the church to organise crusades for the youth and counsel them as regards the right path they must follow to attain everlasting life.
She said the youth must constantly be reminded that before they would attain salvation, they must amend their ways and try to serve their creator in their youthful days.
