Christians charged to be steadfast in faith

By Emma Onumah

Christians have been charged to be steadfast in faith in order to reap from God’s faithfulness and unchanging nature.
The Administrator of the Cathedral Church of the Transfiguration of Our Lord (CATOL) Owerri, Rev. Canon Innocent Agunanne gave this challenge at a Eucharistic service held at the Cathedral last Sunday, while preaching on the theme: “DO NOT WEEP”.
Canon Agunanne, who is also the Vicar of CATOL Parish, gave the assurance that God is bigger than all problems that come the way of any man in life, particularly if such a man surrenders himself to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the son of God and the Author and finisher of our faith.
The Cleric noted, with great concern what people are passing through today, in their different fields of endeavour, particularly as Nigerians, but urged them to remain unshakeable in faith, as God, he said, would restore hope to them as He did to the widow in Luke 7:11-17, whose only son He raised from death because of her unflinching faith in God.
As he said: “we are serving a living God, Who has concern for His people; He has remained unchanging since He created the Heaven and earth and will never change, he asserted.
The Administrator also made the following Bible references – Micah7:7, Jeremiah 9:11 and Ephesians 2:1-7 in the course of the homily.
