Believers urged to hear the voice of God
DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 23: PRINCIPAL of Clark Theological College, Rev. Dr. Mar Pongener, today said one of the greatest benefits of our salvation has to be that of hearing God speak to us personally. He said it is never the Lord who is not speaking, but it is us who are not hearing.
Addressing the concluding service of the 12th Triennial Convention of Nagaland Baptist Church Council Women Department (NBCCWD) hosted by SABAK, Women Department in Pughoboto on October 23, Rev. Dr. Mar Pongener said Jesus speaks but not everyone is hearing or listening to Him and not everybody is opening the door of their lives for him to come in and have fellowship with God. He therefore said, “In stillness we must tune our spiritual ears to hear the voice of God.”
The last day of the convention commenced with morning devotion and small group sharing which was led by Rev. Ellen Konyak Jamir.
During the morning worship service, Y VikhehoSwu, Minister of Road and Bridges (PWD), brought the greetings in which he pointed out the positive results of clean election campaign in Nagaland. He also emphasised the importance of family re-orientation in Naga society.
Special music was presented by Pughoboto Town Baptist Church and Council of Rengma Baptist Churches (CRBC).
The closing service of the convention was marked with a time of encouragement and installation of new office bearers of NBCC Women Department which was officiated by Rev. Dr. ZelhouKeyho, General Secretary, NBCC.
Special music was brought by YBBA and KBBB.
Mrs. Hosheli Q Wotsa delivered the vote of thanks while the word of God was brought by Mrs. Juliet Shikhu, Pastor, Sumi Baptist Church Dimapur.
