Bishop Senyenkulo Challenges Christians To Exercise Patience

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, April 17 (LINA) – Lutheran Bishop Daniel Jensen Seyenkulo is challenging Christians to be patient and avoid rushing for earthly prosperity that will rob them of the opportunity of eternity.

Bishop Seyenkulo advised the congregation of the Trinity Lutheran Church in the Monrovia suburb of New Matadi that as Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ this Easter, it will be good for them to wait for God’s appointed time, rather than scramble for earthly gains.

Speaking on the theme: “Easter for the Lutheran Church in Liberia”, he assured Christians that despite the cruel hands of death that even took the life of the Savior of the world, because of Easter, death will not succeed against them.

“Death will make us to cry a little but the resurrection power in Jesus will win,” he emphasized.

The sermon was the first of its kind in the church since Bishop Senyenkulo was elected as head of the Lutheran Church in Liberia in 2012.

It can be recalled that in 2012, the Trinity Lutheran Church under the stewardship of the current acting Commissioner of the Independent Human Rights Commission, Bartholomew B. Colley, played a leading role in the bishop’s election in 2012.

Lutherans are expected to elect their Bishop on the last weekend of April 2017.

Contesting for the church’s highest position are Reverent Victor Padmore and the incumbent Daniel Jensen Seyenkulo, who is seeking a second four-year term.

Meanwhile, Bishop Senyenkulo has alarmed about the growing wave of illnesses and deaths of several family members and preachers of the gospel.

He pointed out that nearly every weekend a funeral is performed for a church member, something he observed is sickening.
