Let God’s Kingdom come into your lives – Cleric tells Christians

By Emma Onumah

An Anglican Cleric, Venerable Zion Ngoka, has challenged the citizens of Nigeria to let the Kingdom of God come into their lives and to reflect it in whatever they are doing as a means of livelihood.
Ven. Ngoka, who is the Vicar of Christ’s Anglican Church and Archdeacon in charge, Christ’s Church Archdeaconry, Anglican Diocese of Owerri, made this call while preaching at a special thanksgiving service, held at the Cathedral Church of the Transfiguration of Our Lord (CATOL) Owerri last Sunday, to mark the end of the Re-dedication Week organized for the congregation of the Cathedral.
He counseled that, for any child of God to benefit from God’s Kingdom, he or she must be born again, stressing that when the Kingdom of God becomes your portion, there would certainly be a positive and remarkable change in your life style, such that would reflect either at your place of work, business, or in your relationship with friends and members of your family.
According to the Archdeacon, the Kingdom of God cannot come to anybody, people or church, until they truly and reservedly hallow the name of God, adding that, you cannot be saying “Thy Kingdom come” when each time, you are fighting or quarrelling with people, cheating and telling lies, or being involved in other evil deeds, you know are not in tandem with the will of God.
As he further warned: the Kingdom of God would bring you face to face with eternal realities as well as make you experience a spiritual change in your life.
Highlight of the service was the re-dedication of the entire congregation of the Cathedral, for greater commitment towards the service of God, and in the realization of the prophetic declaration made by the Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Chukwuma Chinekezi Oparah Ph.D, JP, to the effect that this year is a “Year of Divine Expansion”.
