Xmas Carol: Achudume Charges Nigerians To Keep Faith Amidst Adversity

ABEOKUTA – As Nigeria’s economy continues to nosedive, Nigerians have been urged to seek divine help and keep faith in God for good turnaround.

The Lead Pastor of Victory Life Bible Church International, Apostle Lawrence Achudume gave the charge on Thursday at the church’s Christmas Carol held at the church auditorium.

Apostle Achudume noted that the reason for the Christmas as well as the immeasurable joy that comes with the season was to remember those who are in need and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

According to him, virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, not only suffered, but was rejected when she became pregnant.

He rhetorically asked how many people can withstand turbulent times and trying moments, noting that Mary was able to overcome all that happened because of her faith and firm belief in the supremacy of God.

“Can you be a Mary?Just imagine what would have been her experience if she were to be alive today. With the things going on in our world, people denying the existence of God. Science is trying to proof to man that there is no God. Untill you taste His Power, you can’t know that Jesus is Lord.”

Apostle Achudume opined that many people would not have believed that Mary could get pregnant supernaturally, if such occurrence had taken place in this present day, particularly with the Internet buzz and technology.

He admonished the doubting Thomases who do not believe in the existence of God to jettison such thought, adding that such people need to taste his supernatural existence to believe.

The VLBC Lead Pastor harped on the need for those occupying positions of authority to always remember that such status is just temporary, submitting that God would always hold the ace till the end of time.

Taking his Bible verse from the book of Psalm chapter 24 verse 8, he said that everyone has a level of glory, but that irrespective of the level, there is a King that is the beginning and end of glory.

The Christmas Service which had in attendance Ministers Of God, top government functionaries, members of the fourth estate of the realm, among others, witnessed special music renditions, reading of Four special lessons from the Holy Bible, and photo sessions.
