Bishop Okorafor tasks Christians

Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Egbu, the Rt. Rev Geoffrey Okorafor, has urged Christians to always restrain themselves from betraying each other for the sake of money. They should rather make themselves veritable  instrument in the hands of God for the services and edification of the Church.
Bishop Okorafor who gave the advice during his first episcopal visit to St. Matthias Anglican Church, Elelem, in Ngor Okpala LGA to mark St. Matthias Day,  emphasised the need to exhibit pious living and trust worthy lives. He said they should eschew planning evil against one another as the repercussions were grievous, as evident in the life of Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus Christ.
The Bishop explained that the congregation  was a lucky one, in that their Patron’s Saint’s day was celebrated the same day, 24 February,  the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion was inaugurated in 1979  and also the date of the consecration of the Bishop of Egbu in 2013.
While wondering if they could be trusted, as their Patron Saint, Matthias, urged for transparency in all their dealings, stressing that they would only be remembered for their good deeds.
He observed that a number of them would either be remembered for the good or bad reputation they left behind and urged them to strive to be remembered only for good.
He noted that some of them would take to different activities of the Church in preference to other events in the society and encouraged them to avoid being influenced by mundane things.
