Repent from sin to avert damnation, cleric warned


By Kayode Adeoti

The Minister-in-charge of Word Assembly Commission, Ita Elepa branch, Pastor Christopher Jimoh has warned Christians who do not want to experience the wrath of God to repent and desist from their sinful ways.
The cleric in his sermon yesterday, noted that the purpose of Jesus’ death on the cross of Calvary is to wash off sins of mankind and redeem them back to God.
The pastor who based his sermon on biblical passages of Luke chapter 13 verses 1-5 and Joshua Chapter 7, 1-21, said believers who have derailed must acknowledge their sins and seek the face of God for forgiveness.
According to him, God is ever ready to forgive people of their transgression if only they go to him in true repentance and show eagerness to lead holy life.
The clergy man also charged Christians to always appreciate the grace of God over their lives, saying His mercy and favour have been abundant for everyone.
“Despite the sins of mankind God has been faithful. God is good and His mercy endures forever. If not so, He would have wiped out mankind from the surface of the earth because of atrocities. However, we cannot continue to abide in sin and expect grace to abound,” he further said.
Quoting Ecclesiastes chapter 9 verse 11 saying “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet favour to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill, but time and chance happeneth to them all,”
He therefore urged Christians not to take the grace of God upon their lives for granted in order not to be visited by his wrath on the long run.
