The President of Christ Apostolic Church, Nigeria and Overseas, Pastor Samuel O. Oladele has admonished the youths on the need to know God, telling them that they can't know God without true fellowship with Him.

Pastor Oladele said this while giving "Presidential Charge" on the topic "Knowing the God of Your Father" at the just concluded 2023 Academic Stars' Summit organised by the CAC Youth Directorate, Nigeria and Overseas, held at Joseph Ayo Babalola University (JABU), Ikeji-Arakeji,Osun State.

Pastor Oladele who was ably represented by his Special Assistant, Pastor T.D. Asokeji told the students that if true they want to do exploits for the Lord, they must not only know the God of our fathers, but must know God themselves.

According to him, there is a clear difference between consecration and yieldedness, noting that Samson was consecrated but never knew the Lord, yieldedness is the mark of those who have direct contact with God. 

He told the youths that meeting God and knowing Him will bring out His best in them.

"Today, we have youths who are gifted without having relationship with God. 

If you know the Lord, you will be willing to do what He wants you to do. You can't know the Lord if you don't have true fellowship with Him. The evidence of knowing the Lord will cause you to have fellowship with Him," he stated.

The President noted that it is knowing the Lord that can cause one to have true liberty, true power, true commitment and make our boast.

Explaining how to know the Lord, Pastor Oladele said; "we can know the Lord in the Light of His Word. We can know the Lord through communion with Him and we can know the Lord through constant fellowship."

On the proof of those who know the Lord, the Clergyman stated that those who know the Lord have consecrated life, sanctified life, yielded life and sanctified life.
