Members of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association Ghana (CLOGSAG) gathered in Accra for a Thanksgiving Service, where Pastor Bayo, Chaplain of CLOGSAG, urged Ghanaians to reflect on God's goodness and express appreciation.
“There are a lot of privileges we have claimed this year, but the gift of life is not a privilege. We are indebted to God. Thanksgiving is a debt we owe to God in return for all the good things He has done for us,” Pastor Bayo emphasized during the sermon.
Quoting from Psalms 100:3-4, he reminded the congregation, “Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.”
Pastor Bayo stressed that thanksgiving is the key to attracting God's attention for a triumphant entry into the new year. He encouraged expressive gratitude, stating, “Let your lips be filled with praise and thank Him for His goodness. That is how you attract Him.”
Mr. Benjamin Otoo, President of CLOGSAG, expressed gratitude for seeing members through the challenges faced at the beginning of the year. He applauded members for achieving most of their targets and urged continued dedication to serving the nation.
The President wished everyone a fruitful Christmas and advised measured celebrations. Representatives from the Civil Service and Local Government Service shared goodwill messages, commending CLOGSAG leadership for efforts to improve members' conditions.
