The Kasoa Area Youth Secretary of the Church of Pentecost (CoP), Elder Ebenezer Ankomah, has urged the youth to strive for excellence in all that they do.
He said this is the only way they can fit perfectly in today’s society and be chosen over the rest.
He was speaking on the theme “Repositioned in Christ for Excellence and Maximum Impact” on Sunday in Accra when the Youth Ministry of the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC) West Hills marked its day.
“It will be pathetic for any young person to go by their parent’s standards. God has a character for excellence and as a young person, you cannot decide not to live by this. God wants us to spread the aroma of excellence,” he stated.
The Kasoa Area Youth Secretary explained that excellence is the quality of being extremely good or outstanding.
He stated that young people could do better in their various professions or studies by believing in Jesus Christ and relying solely on him.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father, (John 14:12 King James Version KJV),” he quoted.
Elder Ankomah also said that striving for excellence by the youth is imperative because they are the workmanship of God created for good works.
“Excel at what you do, wherever and whenever. Be the Greatest of All Time (GOAT) of what you do,” he added.
Quoting that a man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men (Proverbs 18:16 KJV), Elder Ankomah also said Christian youth were not to settle for mediocrity and added that they were not to excel only in their chosen fields but also in their characters.
More so, he urged the youth to learn to sacrifice and be patient in their strive for excellence, adding that nothing good came easily.
