The Senior Pastor of Praise Arena, Jummy Adetoyese-Olagunju, has urged Nigerians to imbibe the culture of love, forgiveness and selfless service as exemplified by Jesus. Olagunju said this at the Christmas Carol held by the church at Le-Real Hotel, VGC, Lekki, Lagos.

The programme tagged Super Praise, featured song rendition, Bible teaching, prayer, special ministration from Praise Arena Choir, WaleSax, Chidinma and other A-list gospel ministers.


According to him, the euphoria around Christmas will be lost if Nigerians do not appropriate the love that Christ exhibited by coming to the world, and demonstrated how the love we show to others should translate to the love we have for God.

“Jesus is the reason for Christmas as it reminds us that Jesus is the light of the world and that each of us should light the world as

“He does. Christmas is not a mere religious rite but a time of reflection on the principles and selfless love of Christ and how the application of the teachings of Christ can make the world a better place to live”.

He noted that 2019 promises greater favour and unlimited supply of God’s blessing but “we can only attract such if we change our ways and imbibe the teachings of Christ.

“In 2019, make everyday count for goodness, love and compassion. Forgive upfront; abstain from malice, anger and bitterness. Look for opportunity to be a miracle to someone and be a blessing someone is waiting for and you will not lack any good thing,” he said.
