The President of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Worldwide, Pastor Samuel Oladele, has advised ministers' wives to exhibit Godly behaviors in every facet of their lives.

Being pious as Pastors' wives, the President said it would help them to be more committed and supportive to their husbands' divine calling and the church at large.

Pastor Oladele spoke on Thursday at the CAC Ministers' Wives Golden Jubilee Celebration held at Babalola Memorial Camp, Ikeji-Arakeji, Osun State.

He also enjoined the women to trod the path of chastity and behave well so as to be good role models to people looking up to them, particularly brethrens. 

He said, "It takes a genuine walk with God to know His will and purpose for you. Who, where or what you are today is not about you, it is about God. There is a higher purpose for which God created you and placed you where you are today. Therefore, you must see your being a minister's wife, as a privilege and an opportunity to fulfill God's purpose for your life. An understanding that purpose is not about us, but about God, will help you to be grateful, humble, focus and accountable. 

“Fulfilling your God-given purpose can be pretty overwhelming, especially when you try to do so in your own strength and wisdom. Therefore, you must endeavour to trust in the Lord with all your heart, and not lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-8,2 Corinthians 9:8).

The CAC leader also noted that women are expected to be disciplined and be mentors to young lasses in the society. 

He added that "God created you, as a woman, to work with the man as a partner in the many tasks involved in stewarding God's creation - including raising families that will rule and dominate the earth. You are meant to complement us (men) like Eve (Genesis 2:23-25), Zipporrah Moses's wife (Exodus 4:24-26), Deborah Lapidoth (Judges 4:4-5), the Shunamitess (2nd Kings 4:8-10), Abigail (1st Samuel 25:14, 18-33), Esther (Esther 4:15-17) and the virtuous woman (Proverbs 31:10-31)," Pastor Oladele noted.

The Cleric told the ministers wives that they were made complete as "ezers" (help), not as superiors, servants or competitors to their husbands. 

"When God said, 'It is not good that man should be alone...', He meant every word of it. That is, the man was unable to fulfill his God-ordained purpose until an EZER was made for him, his lone state was not good. Man needed help, one that was comparable to him, who would be able to meet his need. The woman fulfilled that purpose of an EZER, a help mate ," the Cleric ended.
