One of the highlights of the month of March was being with a group of young ladies, about 30 in all, from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Navigators Ministry. I was invited to speak at their annual event dubbed Ladies’ Day Out, on the topic, Identity. My message centred on our identity in Christ. Among other things, I shared one of my jewels in Scripture, Galatians 3:10 which says “For all who rely on the works of the Law are under a curse, as it is written cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” Verses like this always lift the banner of the gospel and remind us of why it is called the Good News – that through no effort of ours, we were delivered from a curse and given an eternal identity as God’s children. The thrust of the message was that God wants us to hold steadfastly to what His word says about who we are in Christ even when our circumstances do not seem to show it. My heart is filled with so much joy when I remember their faces as they listened with rapt attention.
As I recall this wonderful moment of fellowship with these young ladies, I look forward to the passing of the COVID-19 crisis. Amidst all the uncertainty and the fear which looms, we need to ask “What is God saying? What assurance is He giving us?” We find assurance, faith and
peace in our fellowship with God as we hold on to His Word in the midst of this crisis.
I pray that we will continue to have deep fellowship with God always and that our hearts will
be assured that “…in all things God works for the good of those who love Him and are
called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
As you fellowship with God, please pray for the KNUST Nav ladies, that God will grant them the endurance and patience to hold on to what His word says about them, regardless of their circumstances.
