Christians have been asked to always develop attitude of praise and worship, and to also acknowledge that the Lord is good.
Giving this injunction while preaching at the mid-week service held at the St. Mark’s Chapel, Bishop’s Bourne, Diocese of Owerri, the Vicar of St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church, Federal Housing Estate, Trans-Egbu Layout Owerri, Rev. Canon Akajiaku C. Chukwuocha, said that even in the midst of persecutions and hardship, Christians should find reason to praise and worship God.
He asked Christians to ponder and ask themselves: Why has God created me a different and special individual from the others?
Canon Chukwuocha who is a Surveyor and also a Lecturer with the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) urged Christians to always remain thankful to God and to give Him those things that would admit them before His presence. According to him, the call for the expectation of eternity is declining among those who regard themselves as children of God, regretting that such people are always quick to remember more of what God has not done for them than what He has done for them.
The Cleric used the occasion to remind all the faithful in the Diocese, their friends and well-wishers, to attend the Festival of Praise and Worship holding in the Cathedral Church of the Transfiguration of Our Lord (CATOL) Owerri on Saturday 7th July, 2012, and expressed the hope and belief that, out of worship and praise, they can complete the Cathedral building nearing competition, through generous giving and worshipping God with their substances, assuring them of God’s immense blessings and care, if they do so.
