Ikole (Ekiti State)- A clergyman, Rev. Emmanuel Ajayi, on Sunday asked Christians to abstain from sinful lifestyles by upholding the teachings of Jesus Christ for a successful 2015.
Rev. Ajayi of Thy Holiness Bible Church, Ikole, in Ekiti state, who gave the advice in his sermon marking the first Sunday Service, called on Christians to move closer to God in the New Year so as to overcome the problems of life.
According to Ajayi, 2015 is full of blessings for those who walk in God’s way by obeying His commandments, doing His Will and serving Him.
“Christians should endevour to live a holy life, pray ceaselessly for God’s direction in their daily undertaking and be at peace with their neighbours.’’
Ajayi advised Christians to stay away from acts that could tarnish their images saying they should do things that would make people see them as good representatives of Jesus Christ.
He tasked Christians to contribute their quota towards a successful general election in February through prayers and active participation as members of the electorate.
The Cleric stated that the country would overcome its various challenges in the New Year and called on every Nigerian to support government to achieve this.(NAN)
