He encouraged Christians to put their trust only in God, saying that those who believed in God were protected and favoured by his grace. He urged Nigerians to be godly, rather than put their trust and hope in earthly things that are perishable.
He advised the church to be a shining example to unbelievers by living lives worthy of emulation.
A cleric, Gabriel Akumbu, has appealed to Nigerian politicians, especially those in Benue State, to avoid the act of eliminating perceived opponents in order to gain political power.
“If we take care of others, God will take care of us. You should be happy because God is in control of all challenges. Most people allow anxiety and worthless things of the world to overcome them,” he said.
He also assured the faithful of God’s sufficient provision of all human needs.
“2015 general elections are around the corner. Even though we just began 2014, most politicians will stop at nothing just to enter or remain within a political circle,” Mr. Akumbu said.
Cleric asks Nigerians to be godly
“Let us learn to give, so that we can be blessed by God,” he said.
The cleric urged those who are able, to assist the less privileged, particularly widows and orphans.
“Christians must live holy lives. We have all it takes to live a worthy and happy life through Christ.”
Mr. Akumbu made the call on Sunday, during mass at St. Theresa’s Parish, Naka, Gwer West local government area, Benue State.
