The President of Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide, Pastor Samuel O. Oladele has urged women on the need to allow the Spirit of God dominate their lives, not the flesh.


Pastor Oladele who stated this on Thursday August 19, 2021 while ministering on the topic "The Spirit Controlled Woman" at the 77th Good Women Conference, Ikeji III, Akinyele Region, told the women they can't impress God by their gifts, furthering that; "when you exhibit the fruit of the Spirit, it is an indication that you're being led by the spirit of God."


Taking his text from Romans chapter 8 verse 12, the President said the women need to let the whole world know that they are not being led or controlled by the world or culture around, but by something that is entirely different, which is the spirit of God. 


The Cleric said we are debtors according to the scriptures, but we owe the flesh nothing but the spirit of God. 


He also told the Good Women that; "When you're being led by the Spirit, your ministers won't have problem with you. Those who are led by the Spirit are identifiable. If indeed the spirit of God is in you, you will magnetize God's people. The people you work with say much about who you are."


According to him, as Christians, the Spirit of God has imparted into us a new tendency, a new behaviour and character, adding that; " when the Spirit resides in you, you will be able to do what Jesus teaches. Christianity is not about going to the mountains, it is about doing what Jesus teaches. If you are living by flesh principles, you are dead."


He concluded that; "when you are being led by the spirit you will be able to compare your judgement, character and behaviour with what the scriptures say. You need to ask yourself 'Am I like Dorcas, Priscilla, Esther etc.' That tells you you're being led by the Spirit. No doubt that you will become increasingly like God and saints in church history and now. Our obligation is not to the flesh, but to the spirit."
