ABOUT 300 members of the Methodist Church Sunday School ministry were reminded about the importance of knowing God spiritually and intimately on Saturday. In opening the ministry’s rally for the church’s sector 2 of Macuata division, Deaconess Luisa Vovole told the children that they should learn to feast on the word of God. She encouraged them to know the scriptures because “it was sharper than a two-edged sword” and contained many promises.
With reports of social ills and rapid change of technology in today’s society, Ms Vovole told the children that only God could help protect them from all harm.
She also encouraged parents to be good ambassadors of Christ to their children, not only at home, but in everything they do for their families.
“We need to start teaching our children to read, eat and live on God’s Word because it is alive and continues to live in our midst today,” Ms Vovole said.
“So many things are happening now in our world and our children are being exposed to issues that we were not exposed to in the 70s, 80s even in 1990s. “This is why parents should play their roles seriously and help children live the word of God because it will protect them in times of trouble.”
Ms Vovole also challenged the children to make a difference in their lives, with their families and friends and to know God personally.
