Apostle Jeroham John Obour, the Field Director of the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) has asked Christians to seek spiritual passions to obtain salvation, and not earthly comforts. He said salvation must be the main priority of every Christian and urged them to shun pleasures that hindered spiritual growth in Christ to have eternal life and all other desires.
Apostle Obour was addressing the New Mamprobi Area Easter Convention of the CACI in Accra on Good Friday on the theme: “Greater Works Than These…” (John 14:12). He said: “God has brought Christ to liberate us from the powers of the darkness which Satan has been the dominance of.“Christ has come to save us and we should all believe in Him and we shall be saved.”
The five-day convention is being attended by about 2,000 members drawn from the 10 assemblies of the New Mamprobi Area including: New Bortianor Central, New Bortianor Number two, Korle Gonno, Kaneshie, South Odorkor and Mamprobi. The convention is organised nationwide at the Area and Zonal levels of the Church.
He urged religious leaders to make the salvation of members their major focus because that was the mission of Christ on Earth. “The leaders must teach the congregation the scriptures so as to move away from acts that hindered their salvation’’, he concluded. Good Friday on the Christian Calendar is the Friday when Christians, all over the world, remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ to save the world according to the Holy Bible.
