GOOD FRIDAY: Reflect On The Crucifixion Of Jesus Christ – Clerics

Written by Maritime First

A pastor of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Prophet Peter Olugbade Adigun today, urged Christians to reflect on the life and crucifixion of Jesus Christ and turn a new leaf by living righteously before God.

Prophet Adigun gave the charge while speaking on the meaning of crucifixion of Jesus Christ at the CAC, Aduragbemi, Oke Anu, Alegongo, Akobo, Ibadan.

He cautioned against converting church activities into money making ventures, warning that the second coming of Jesus will be to visit sinners with judgment and punishment.

“He died that we may live.  He died that we may have direct access to God. But his death came with great pains to him, that our salvation may be secured.  He will not be happy if he comes back and find anyone trading and making money with his great pains!” Prophet Adigun stated, stressing that the second coming will occur when no one will expect.

Echoing  similar message, a cleric, Rev. Ifeanyi Okonkwo, has also urged Christians in the country to imbibe the virtue of selflessness in order to live above materialism and get-rich-quick syndrome.

Okonkwo spoke on Friday during a homily in a Good Friday Service held at the Anglican Church of Ascension, Achara Layout, Enugu.

“Only when we live selflessly like Jesus Christ did, by sacrificing his life on the cross; the urge to acquire wealth uncontrollably can be checkmated,’’ he said.

The cleric also noted that selflessness involve giving as well as a heart of charity and sharing with others.

“A selfless heart is the heart that seeks to give and does not seeking for his own personal gain; just as Christ exemplified,’’ he said.

He, however, urged Christians to show the light by being selfless in order for the country to move forward.

“Our lives as those that follow Christ must tell of our master’s wish that anyone who wants to lead others must be a servant to all,’’ he said.

The cleric prayed for the nation’s leaders and for the recovery of the nation’s economy.
