Strengthen the relationship with 'God'

Salaseini Moceiwai

TO strengthen their relationship with God, Christian Mission Fellowship International (CMFI) pastors from around the globe are in Labasa for a week of spiritual retreat.

The men of God, who arrived into the northern town last week, are camping at Nukutatava along with their spouses.

At their combined service in Naiyaca Church yesterday, church president Reverend Suliasi Kurulo said he had a conversation with some pastors who would be designated to new places this year and he encouraged them not to think of themselves but the people they would be administering to.

He told them their personal dealings were to come last because they had to prioritise God's calling in their lives.

Mr Kurulo said such a calling also included the church members they would be looking after.

Citing the word of God from the Bible, he said it was prudent for everyone to follow the will of God and not our own. For God to bless you, Mr Kurulo said, this was "not determined by your level of education, profession or the colour of your skin but by the largeness of your heart".

He said when God sees the good condition of a person's heart, He would open up the heavens and command his blessing to come to that person.

The retreat is expected to end Wednesday.
