Gaius Byam, the Plateau state pastor of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, on Sunday admonished
Christians have been urged to always live godly lives. The call was made by Gaius Byam, the Plateau state pastor of the Living Faith Church Worldwide.
According to him, this will enable them to be able to reap profit here on earth and in heaven.
Byam said that all Christians must strive to be obedient to the word and leading of God at all times.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the pastor anchored the church’s teaching series on: “Godliness is profitable unto all things,” (1Timothy 4: 8).
Byam said that treating God’s word with levity would make Him not to treat man with integrity and God could not be mocked, stressing that “whatsoever a man planted, that also he would reap’’.
According to him, “consequently, if a man refuses to obey God and live righteously, he has opened the doors to the devil to torment and kill him, for the wages of sin is death’’.
He said that the prayers of a sinful man were an abomination to God and the only cry from a sinner should be that of repentance and mercy.
The minister, therefore, begged everyone to stay away from sin and every appearance of evil, so as to make heaven and be defended by God on earth.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said anyone who is over 70 and still afraid of death needs to check his or salvation.
Preaching during the first Sunday Thanksgiving of the RCCG new year calendar which held at its headquarters in Lagos, the cleric noted that the government's advise against old people coming to church was a good one.
Adeboye, however, made a declaration against death, saying everyone would live to declare the word of God.
The RCCG had on Tuesday, August 25, announced that it will be holding the September 2020 Holy Ghost Service online.
According to the church, it will continue with its online means of holding its services.
Legit.ng reported that a statement by the management said the decision was taken because Pastor Adeboye would not want to put anyone in harm's way when they are commuting from their homes in attending the service.
