Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has urged Christians to win soul for Christ through their actions.
He made the call on Sunday, August 11, 2019 while speaking at the second Mega Convention cum Dedication of a 7 Floor Prayer Tower at Balm of Gilead, Church of God Mission International, Benin City, Edo.
Okowa said, “a Christian cannot afford to live a careless life; he should win souls for Christ with his deeds, because, if he fails to win by his actions, he has failed.
“It is my prayer that God will renew your strength as Christians; just imagine a Nigeria without people to serve God; God has a purpose for this country and we pray that our nation will be great for the Lord.
“It is important that we preach about salvation, about the kingdom of God, rather than things of the world; it is not fair when we do not preach about salvation; salvation first and any other thing comes after.
“As a Christian, you should work hard so that you remain in the kingdom of God.”
He thanked the church for inviting him to inaugurate the prayer tower built by a member of the church, Mr Ifeanyi Nwachukwu, noting that Christians should at all times, serve God with whatever they had.
The governor appreciated the church for celebrating his 60th birthday with him, disclosing that his mother died in a ghastly motor accident at the age of 43 and that attaining 60 years meant a lot to him.
Earlier in a sermon, Bishop Feb Idahosa urged Christians to go and woo more people to Christ since they had been delivered and seen the light.
“You have been delivered, go and bring more people to be delivered; your job is to introduce those who need to be delivered, because God can accommodate everyone of us
“We must focus on Christ, no sin is too great, no situation is too great, only God can deliver you when you come to Him,” the Bishop said.
