Christian pilgrims have been charged to be shining examples in their different spheres of influence for the development of society and the State at large.

Speaking at the thanksgiving service held in honour of Y2020/2021 pilgrims at Chapel of Christ The Light in Alausa, wife of the Lagos State Governor, Dr.  Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, advised pilgrims to reflect the lessons learnt during the exercise in their daily lives in order to generate positive attitude from people.

Represented by Mrs. Funmi Omotoso, wife of the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, the First Lady noted that people no longer read the bible but study the behaviour and attitude of Christians, hence the need to consciously be of good character and worthy ambassadors of Jesus Christ.

Her words: “Now that you are back, we must begin to see the reflection of the lessons learnt in the way and manner you relate with God as well as people around you and the society at large”.

“We should all strive to ensure that the word of God in the book of Matthew 5:16 is our watchword, which says that let your light shine before men so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven”.

She commended the Lagos State Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board (LSCPWB) for conducting a hitch-free, maiden pilgrimage journey to Jordan.

In his remarks, the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, commended the pilgrims for good conduct throughout the journey and described the thanksgiving service as very necessary because the pilgrimage to Jordan was a new experience.

He, however, charged the Jordan Pilgrims (JP) to continue to be worthy ambassadors and law-abiding citizens as they did in the Kingdom of Jordan during the pilgrimage exercise.

Also speaking, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Mr. Oluseyi Whenu, reiterated that the thanksgiving service was put together to thank God for a hitch-free pilgrimage, noting that despite all odds arising from the COVID-19 pandemic everything went well to the glory of God.

Whenu maintained that it is a wrong notion that pilgrimage exercise is just for sight-seeing, stating that it is indeed a period of spiritual upliftment, cleansing and edification for Christians who embark on the journey.

The Board Secretary, LSCPWB, Mrs. Yetunde Gbafe, thanked the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his tremendous support towards the success of the pilgrimage to Jordan, commending the Jordan Pilgrims (J.P) as well as the entire board staff and stakeholders for their unflinching support.

In his sermon, the Rt. Rev. Ologun Adebayo reminded the congregation of the importance of thanking God and showing gratitude always, pointing outing that all things work together for good.

Prayers were offered for the State and the Country at large while testimonies were said by the pilgrims on the miraculous and divine interventions of God in their lives during the pilgrimage.

The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, has advised Nigerians to shun vices and embrace righteousness, which the event represents.

Delivering his Easter message, themed “Risen with Christ,” the cleric urged that the significance of the celebration must be internalised through renewal of lives.

“As the power of resurrection comes upon your life, it comes with renewal.

“The renewal is not limited to individuals, but available for the nation of Nigeria, continent of Africa, Asia, America, Europe and others

“Such renewal has the capability to affect your mind, heart, energy, vision, conscience, among others.”

In the same vein Pastor Adonri Osaretin of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Spring Forth Zonal Headquarters,  Lugbe, Abuja has urged Nigerians not to give up as God has not finished with them.

Osaretin gave the advice at the RCCG Spring Forth Easter Music Concert titled; “The Galilee Experience”.
He explained that the Galilee experience was what happened to Apostle Peter, who had denied Jesus thrice during the Crucifixion.

He said that Apostle Peter returned to Galilee and he did not give up, he still waited on the Lord and returned to Him.

The cleric said that “the truth is that the time for waiting is a period that your faith and patience are put to test.

“Your reliance on the Almighty God must be total.
“Things may happen in the country as you don’t want, or expect but don’t give up.”

He acknowledged that it was good to give God thanks for all the good things “we have received”.

Osaretin urged Christians to believe in God and all His deeds with all their faith firmly in place, adding, “we are bound to have greater testimonies this Easter and beyond”.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that various parishes made songs presentations as various Bible verses were read.
