The Priest in charge of Christ the King Out-Station of Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish, Awka, Reverend Father Francis Oranye has challenged Christians to share their wealth with others, so as to be blessed beyond measure.
Reverend Father Oranye gave the challenge in a homily with the theme: “Possibility amidst impossibilities”.
He noted that persistency, dedication and determination are needed for one to excel in life, regretting that some people loose hope in the face of challenges, and advised such people to continue struggling hard and keep hope alive.
At Christ Redemption Anglican Church, Ezi-Awka, the Vicar, Venerable Dr Nnamdi Emendu, in a sermon with the theme ‘winning victories in the battles of life, called on Christians to put on the armour of God in times of challenges, noting that fervent prayers and peace are required for one to surmount challenges in today’s society.
He asked the congregation to keep spreading the gospel, beware of false preachers and have peace in their hearts, even as he urged them to stand firm and anchor their faith on God.
Meanwhile, Christians have been urged to live out Christ, be holy and help one another as God instructed, for the unbelievers to turn to Christ.
Pastor Okey Akpangbo of Redeemed Christian Church Of God, Fruitful Hill’s Assembly, Ngozika Housing Estate, in his sermon said the character of a Christian should be like that of Christ.
Pastor Akpangbo maintained that as Christians profess Christ, it is expected that they live sinless life, love one another and allow the light of God shine, in their lives.
Correspondent Amaka Chibuzor Okoye reports that prayers and thanksgiving added glamour to the church services.
