Hundreds of Christians in the Lagos State Civil Service thronged the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa, Lagos, southwest Nigeria recently to give praise to God for being good to them and preserving them throughout the year.
Worship and praise songs rent the air as they danced in praises to God. General Overseer, Elshadal Ministry, Bishop Lanre Obembe, who was the guest minister he admonished the civil servants to praise God and look on to a brighter New Year. The Lagos State Public Service Christian Fellowship organised the programme, tagged “Christmas Outreach”, with the theme: “Divine Admonition.”
Obembe admonished the worshippers to sow “seeds of faith” and many came out to part with their money in anticipation of God’s abundant after sowing such a seed. It was really fun time.
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information and Strategy, Oluranti Odutola said there was need for all to celebrate Christ for keeping the civil servants alive from January till date.
She was optimistic that despite the hard times, God would come to the aid of the nation and urged the leadership of the nation to have better sense of direction in moving the country to greater heights.
“We need good leadership; the problem of Nigeria is the problem of all of us. We should do our best and be agents of moral change,” she said.
Also, Grace Oladimeji, Second Vice President of the fellowship said there was need to celebrate Christ for dying to redeem the human race from sins, adding that she believed that if the leadership of the nation would embrace him, things would be better for the country.
