Clergy Urges Women To Sacrifice For Their Children’s Future
The Clergy in charge of The Highway Holiness Ministry, Pastor David Okediji and his wife, Mrs Hannah Okediji have called on the womenfolk to strive and make sacrifices in order to create an enabling future for their children.
This was part of their sermons at the 2021 Daughter of Zion Annual Congress (DOZAC 2021) that held on Sunday at Ibadan.
Mrs Hannah Okediji said the end time has come with its manifestations, which required a woman of virtue to deepen her thinking and be proactive about home solutions to problems.
“It is worthy of note that we are already in the end time according to the word of God in Timothy 3:1-3, this passage emphasized the signs or the manifestations of the perilous time, in the same vein in the book of Matthew 24: 1-3, when the disciples of Jesus Christ asked Jesus concerning his comment on the demolition of the temple at the end of the age, he sat upon the mount of olives and explained to them in details, all the signs that they should note as the end of the world approaches.
”If we truly believe the scriptures that the word of God is true and must come to pass, you will agree with me that the end that the Bible talks about is here with us and that this world will soon be rounded off, this issue poses a lot of challenge to every zealous woman for Christ and other believers to think deeply of what to do and to be proactive about it.”
Pastor David Okediji in his sermon, said the essence of the women program was to reawaken women on what should be their responsibility and as well refocus them towards kingdom.
Also, Nigerians have been advised to join hands with security agencies toward finding lasting solutions to the increasing rate of insecurity in the country.
A security expert from the Discipline and Intelligence Corp of Nigeria, Akintayo Oluwatobi who made the appeal at a symposium in ibadan on Insecurity and church leaders identified inequality among citizens as one of the root cause of insecurity in Nigeria.
He noted that the recent events in Nigeria, particularly in the northern part of the country has altered the peaceful atmosphere in worship places stressing that it has become a major cause of concern among stakeholders.
Other speakers at the event stressed the need for those at the helms of affairs to rise to the occasion and understand that they should be responsible to those looking up to them.
They further called on religious leaders in the country to lead by example and join the campaign against ethnic and religious disunity.
