the Secretary of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, aka Mountain of Grace, in Kawo, Apostle Reuben Salawu, has enjoined Christians in the state to intensify prayers and support for government at all levels, as part of their God-given responsibility.
Apostle Salawu, who spoke on Sunday during 2020 Adult Harvest Thanksgiving Service held at the Church in Kaduna, noted that the relative peaceful coexistence witnessed in the country was largely due to prayers, and urged the Christian community not to relent in the same.
“We must accept it as our duty to pray, especially for our leaders for God’s continued guidance and wisdom in taking the right decisions that would better our lot.
“Thank God, we’ve realised that all the segregation and differences would not take us anywhere; as such let’s support the government to help it realise her mandate,” he added.
Earlier, Pastor Rotimi Durodola in a sermon at the occasion admonished Christians to posses the “virtue of a teachable heart,” always accommodating God’s word and instructions.
Pastor Rotimi, who quoted from gospel of Matthew 13:3-23, said xians should re-examine their own lives so as to experience glorious harvest, adding, “We must ask ourselves whether our hearts are good ground for God’s word to find expression.”
Also, Apostle Pastor Gbenga Olufayo, who was chairman of the Harvest Committee, said the essence of the annual occasion was to specially thank God for a successful bumper harvest for the year and offer prayers ahead of next year.
“We have every reason to give thanks to God for sparing our lives throughout the year 2020 and for the great successes recorded in it.
“Although, 2020 has been a challenging year, especially with the experience of the dreaded COVID-19 and pockets of crisis here and there, but God in His infinite mercies has seen us through,” he said.
The occasion attracted unprecedented turnout of members from the local assembly and visitors from within Kaduna state.
Also, songs rendition and special prayers were offered for families, the church, the state and the nation at large.
