Being obedient to God’s word is the ultimate to bring you greatness — Rev. Biney

—Instead of being obedient to God’s word, it appears the majority in the Christian religious fraternity have taken the phrase “we are Christians” as just a moniker and a slogan to cover their sinful ways.

They even go to the extent of criticizing and judging others for committing a sin they (the Christians) are champions of.

Condemning these hypocritical behaviors was an associate overseer of the Crystal Grace Chapel International at Sarpeiman, Accra, Reverend Patrick Biney.

He said, to focus on the teachings of Jesus as that was the only way to experience His favour and blessings, not the mere sight of being called a Christian.

“Being religious doesn’t bring greatness, but obeying God’s instructions does and also redeems you from whatever trouble you are going through and brings remuneration as well,” he told the congregants.

He continues, “God didn’t create religion, nor does he value religion.” If he had, he wouldn’t have redeemed the sick on a Sabbath day.”

Delivering a sermon dubbed “He does Great with the Little,” the man of God advised his members to always believe in God who does great and unimaginable things with little.

Rev. Biney based his sermon on the scripture: Exodus 3, Zakariah 4:10, John 5, and 2nd Kings 4:1-7 citing three biblical occurrences: Elisha filling the highly indebted widow’s numerous pots with the little oil he had available; God using little Shepherd Moses to redeem the Israelites from bondage, and God using Adams’ single rib to create a whole woman (Eve/Hawa).

He concluded his sermon by encouraging them to look up to God and never try to undermine His power.

Let us obey for the bible says

1 Samuel 15:22-23 “Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and presumption is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has also rejected you from being king.”
