Pray for good leaders-Bible Society
Ho, Feb. 09, GNA - Leadership ought to be sought for through prayers rather than by violence, the Bible Society of Ghana has admonished.
'True transformation comes from the realization that God makes leaders,' the Society noted.
The admonishing was contained in a message from the Bible Society signed by Reverend Erasmus Odonkor, General Secretary, and read to the congregation of the Elorm Parish of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church Ho Bankoe, as part of the Bible Week celebration.
'The theme for the celebration, 'the Bible, guide to Godly leadership', must therefore be the compass to navigate this year's general elections and after, he said.
He said those seeking to lead must be 'servant leaders' like Jesus Christ who washed the feet of his disciples' and others who were extolled in the Bible for their compassion and vision.
The citizenry, majority being Christians, must therefore pray hard and work towards a peaceful elections this year, he added.
On the Bible Week, Reverend Odonkor said the occasion was meant to promote 'unity in diversity' among Christians where denomination was insignificant.
The occasion was also to thank God for the translation of the Bible into several languages and making it accessible and affordable to many people.
It was also a week of prayers and actions by all Christians for peace this year.
Rev Odonkor admonished Christians to take Bible reading and study very seriously in order to build steadfast lives because the word of God provides solutions to all human challenges.
Work to translate the Bible into the Guruni language in the Upper East Region was progressing steadily, he stated.
The General Secretary exhorted Christians to support its work with prayers and resources towards the fulfillment of its charge of taking the 'Word' to the world. GNA
