Prepare for good works, fight corruption, Anglican Church charges Christians
As Christians continue to look forward to the Second Coming of Christ, they have been advised to immerse themselves in the knowledge of God, so that they may become vessels of honour and be ready for good work in the church and the country.
Archbishop, Province of Lagos and Bishop of Remo, The Most Rev. Michael Olusina Fape gave the charge at the sixth yearly National Convention (ACF) of the Anglican Christian Fellowship held in Lagos.
Speaking on theme of the convention, “Prepare Unto Good Works,” the cleric warned that no one could be useful for God’s highest purpose, if he/she still indulges in sin, noting that only Christians who have been cleansed from filthiness of sins would be fit to do good works in God’s Kingdom.
The Archbishop called on Christians to be dedicated to evangelism and shun anything related to evil.
He said: “At a time like this, this is a call for all and sundry in the country, that whatever we want to do without the knowledge of God and His input cannot stand. So, as Christians, we have to fight corruption, and demonstrate the fact that Nigeria is one of the countries God is interested in.”
Also, Bishop, Lagos West Diocese, Rt. Rev. James Olusola Odedeji advised Christians to remember they have been called to be vessels of honour, set apart for the Master’s use and to always prepare for good work.
Condemning corruption and moral decadence in the society, Odedeji said: “Rather, than lead by examples, they compromise because the foundation of their salvation lacks substance.”
In his address, President, ACF, Henshaw Adetoye called on political leaders to shun selfish quest for power and sustain the Nigerian Project by ensuring that the country remains united during and after the 2019 general elections.
