Saturday 22nd June 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Number 23

Topic:- Biography Of Pastor Isaiah Ghele Sakpo [5]

Text:- Proverbs 22:29

The achievements and contributions of Sakpo to the development of The Apostolic Church in Nigeria are remarkable. He served the Church in one capacity or another for sixty-six years, from the time he joined in 1927 to his death in 1993.
His predecessor, Pastor S.G. Adegboyega, described him as an example of humility. He was never seen to covet wealth, nor to amass material possessions, and remained in the same house where he had lived as a young Minister, even when he became the Territorial Chairman and First National Vice President of The Apostolic Church.
He devoted his person, gifts, and even his family to the Word of the Lord and its administration, teaching, and application. He guarded The Apostolic Vision through diplomacy, personal and congregational discipline, prayers, and generosity.

On August 2, 1993, at 12:25 pm, during the LAWNA Convention, he was called home to be with the Lord.

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
