Trust solely in God as your sustainer, Anglican Bishop tells christians
The Anglican Bishop of Umuahia diocese, The Rt. Rev’d Geoffrey Ibeabuchi has pointed out that the promises from God are for His children to partake of.
Bishop Ibeabuchi made this known in his sermon captioned, “My help comes from God”, with text drawn from the Bible books of Psalm 121 VS 1-3; Psalm 115 VS 4-8 and Isaiah 31 VS 1-10 at St. Paul’s Church, Uzuakoli road, Umuahia, Abia State during the induction /institution of Ven. Azubuike Koma as the Vicar and induction of new Anglican Youth Fellowship, AYF.
Bishop Ibeabuchi who counselled Christians to put their trust solely in God as their sustainer despite life challenges, maintained that how much trust “We have in God will be evidenced by how much boldness and confidence we have in His help”.
He observed that the Biblical King David, was a man of valour but always acknowledged God’s protection, guidance, support and saving grace upon him.
He encouraged the House of Clergy and other pious groups to totally surrender themselves for good works according to God’s ordinances, just he enjoined them to always keep away from unrighteousness.
Bishop Ibeabuchi who also advised the Church to work zealously and conscientiously and in love of the church, charged the Diocesan AYF to work hard and rely upon God in all their endeavours.
Responding, the newly inducted Vicar of St. Paul’s Church, Anglican communion, Uzuakoli road, Umuahia, Ven. Azubuike Koma appreciated God for successful induction ceremony and prayed God to sustain him with divine courage, wisdom, patience, strength and love to do His will as he prepares to carry out his new assignment diligently.
