Bishop M. Wolo Belleh of the Bethel World Outreach Ministries International (BWOMI) 1st Diocese of Liberia and Guinea has emphasized that God has strategically established the people of Liberia and therefore, they must continue to do the work of the Lord.
He spoke last Sunday at the Thanksgiving and Intercessory Service at BWOMI in Congo Town where he emphasized that God has strategically established Liberians and that they must continue to hold on together in peace and unity.
According to him, Liberia is blessed and sometimes the people in the country don’t see it that way except for those who reside out of the country who come and see how the country is being blessed.
“We are God’s Israel in Africa when He repeatedly said this in His prophecy, but we usually over look to the contrary as a people and nation,” the prelate told the congregation.
Bishop Belleh said Liberians need to stop complaining and shun the acts that have the propensity to undermine the good work of the Lord as well as stop fighting each other as a congregation.
He stressed the need for church leaders to be people of example in both churches and ministries and not the type to undermine each other, but to rise up with strength and unity to definitely move the people and the nation higher.”
According to him, there is a need to maximize what God has given to us as a nation and people.
He revealed that he has been assigned a task to launch the BWOMI in Guinea Bissau, which he believes God will bring into reality.
Referring to the debate on Christianizing Liberia, Bishop Belleh said it was a high wisdom, but urged the citizens to believe wherever God will lead the nation as a people.
“The thing we want is that Liberia be a Christianized nation either by constitution or preaching the gospel, if the church rises up in reaching out to the lost. We need to pray and see how God will lead us,” he maintained.
Earlier, Rev. Dr. Jonathan C. Taylor, who delivered the keynote address, stressed the need for the country to strive in preparing its citizens for the future.
He said leaders must understand that they were called before birth by God who prepared them for a special mission.
The thanksgiving celebration was attended by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Senator George Manneh Weah of Montserrado County, among others.
