The Bishop, who pointed out that their seeking Christ in spirit and truth would transform their lives, enjoined them to  remain steadfast and focused else they could derail from their faith and belief.
While encouraging the people to make their lives transparent such that others would see and be able to attest to their Christian faith, he cautioned them not to allow themselves to be deceived by some of the new generation prosperity preachers.
Bishop Okorafor assured that as long as they cling to Christ without losing faith and  remain clean and upright in all their dealings He would restore to them their hopes, stressing that with trust and confidence in Christ they would overcome challenges confronting them. He also urged them to move into their villages to proclaim to the people the salvation in Christ.
