Cleric Harps On Need To Return Gratitude To God
…As Christians Celebrate 2022 Fathers’ Day
A man of God, Apostle Gift Faah of the Eternal Sacred Cherubim & Seraphim (Mount of Testimony) Mile 2, Diobu, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has reiterated on the need for Christians to return gratitude to God in order for Him to be provoked into doing more humanity.
Apostle Faah stated this when he was delivering the sermon during this year’s Fathers Day Celebration.
He made it known that appreciation is not only meant for God Almighty but to our fellow beings as it serves also as encouragement for them to put in their best in their endeavours.
Narrowing his illustration to the family circle, the man of God informed that when the father who is the head of the family is appreciated over his efforts in providing for or protecting the family, he will go all out to do more.
He disclosed further that the both parents are important in the home and so should be appreciated for their role in raising up their children for the society.
And that it is not only posthumously but when they are still living.
Coming back to God Almighty, Apostle Faah said gratitude to God has numerous benefits which includes having the peace of mind, renewal of Christian faith as well as drawing them nearer to God.
Recall that the Fathers Day celebration is an annual event mapped out all over the world to recognize the effort and importance of fathers in the family.
Highlight of the church service was the exchange of gifts especially from the female folks, their family members and well wishers.
There was also joint refreshment for the congregation.
In another development, St. John’s (Ang) Church, Rumuolumeni have also celebrated the Fathers Day in a special way by sending out delegates to pray for their aged or sick male members with special gifts also from the church to them.
Some other group were sent to do what they term “barbar job” that is doing menial job for the fallen heroes as well as preaching the gospel to them.
Yet some other youth group were sent out for an outreach programme for evangelism.
