The Bishop of Asaba Diocese, Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Rt. Revd. Justus Mogekwu, has called on people in authority to acknowledge God always by using their positions to positively impact on lives of others in the society.
Mogekwu made the call on Sunday at a Thanksgiving Service held at the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter’s, Bishop’s Court, Asaba, by the Chairman, Delta State Civil Service Commission, Dame Nkem Okwuofu for overcoming a health challenge.
He said that it had become increasingly necessary for leaders in the country to be close to God as it would immensely go a long way in promoting humanitarian services.
The bishop also charged Christians to adequately prepare for eternity by wholeheartedly giving their lives to Jesus Christ so that He would accept them in heaven when they pass on to glory.
He advised those dwelling in sin to turn a new leaf by forsaking sinful life style that led to condemnation.
Mogekwu said every second was important because death could occur at any time unexpectedly, adding that the best way to avoid being caught unawares was to be holy at all times.
