Accra, Jan 1, GNA - Rev Robert K. Akolbugri, Head Pastor of Revival Assemblies of God Church in Wa has urged Ghanaians to begin something new and not to be discouraged by what did not work for them in 2017.
“Everyone receives a blank 365 pages book each New Year. Wisdom lies in filling it with the right thoughts and actions,” he said in a New Year message to worshippers on Monday.
It was a great year, however topsy-turvy, he noted, “We cried, laughed, celebrated and felt down sometimes.”
“Begin something new, don’t be deterred by what did not work in the previous year, start afresh and God would crown every small beginning with good success,” he added.
He said the Revival Assembly of the Assemblies of God Church, Ghana, in 2018, would operate on the theme: “My Year of New Beginnings, as we manifest in the Gifts of the Spirit”.
Rev Akolbugri noted that the theme would help the Revival Assembly in the Upper West Regional capital, Wa, to accomplish its goals and be guarded accordingly as followers endeavor to serve their maker.
A lot of Ghanaians had a lot of expectations that were not fully met, he said, “yet as we enter another year of hope, we are entreating everyone to be positively optimistic and hardworking.”
“It is good to write New Year resolutions and hands be laid on you or oil poured on your head but determine to mean your words and actions in 2018,” he added.
He enjoined Ghanaians to allow the change they expected to happen in this country to begin with them.
