Pastor Obed took over the Pulpit and Preach the Message entitled “The Value of a Soul”. The text was taken from the Book of Mark 8:36. He said among many other things, what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loss his soul. He stressed the importance of soul of people who have not receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. He said the Souls of men and women are important for that sake God sent His only Begotten Son to die for and to save them from the power of darkness, sin and Satan. We as Church of God should also commit ourselves by sharing the Goodnews of Jesus to all men for their Salvation. They must know God just as you and I have Jesus Christ in our Life.
