Members of Kapita CCAP Congregation under Nkhoma Synod in Lilongwe were on Sunday urged to stop side-stepping the unbelievers in order to woo them to Jesus Christ, the Lord and Saviour.
Managing Director for Nkhoma FM Radio, Mr. Levi Dannayo gave the urge at Kapita CCAP Congregation in area 18 when he led a special Sunday Service dubbed ‘Nkhoma Synod Radio Day’.
“Growth of the Church is determined by how many sinners namely thieves, murderers, prostitutes and liars are wooed to Jesus by those who are Christ’s diehards,” said Dannayo.
He observed that Christians have lost direction because they say, “We cannot stay, eat or befriend with sinners”.
“We pretend to be too holy and fully anointed. If we stay away from sinners, how are we going to make them come to Jesus?” he wondered.
He said unless the Christians love the unsaved by sharing them the Word of God, giving them gifts and forgiving them, they may not win most souls to God.
“Love for sinners such as prostitutes, liars, thieves and killers started with Jesus himself and these people later followed him in his mission to reach many people that were unsaved,” Dannayo recalled.
Quoting Luke Chapter 7, verses 48 and 49, he said Jesus could interact with a woman who had been the most sinful and forgave her all her sins.
“Then Jesus said to her, Your sins are forgiven (v48). Then the other guests began to say among themselves, who is this who even forgives sins? (V49),”says the chapter.
In response to Dannayo’s request for support for Nkhoma FM Radio, Kapita CCAP Congregation Minister, Reverend Christopher Kanyenda, announced that all Sunday offerings collected from both English and Chichewa services would be given towards Nkhoma FM Radio.
Nkhoma FM Radio Managing Director (Dannayo) had taken advantage of the Radio Day to ask for support for the radio station from Kapita Church.
He told the congregants that at the moment, the radio was broadcasting in all areas in the central region and some parts in the North where it has a transmitter in Mzuzu.
“We are not yet in Southern Region, we are working on purchasing a transmitter costing MK12 million to be installed in Blantyre to reach people with the gospel of salvation,” he revealed the radio plans.
He said the support would help the radio station to reach many with the Christ’s message.
Nkhoma FM Radio was granted a national license in 2012 to reach many people with authentic gospel.
The CCAP Synod (Nkhoma) has 124 congregations, 1,298 prayer houses and serves over 800,000 Christian members.
