The Zonal Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Gwagwalada, Abuja, Pastor Gideon Dagunduro, has appealed to Christians to use the Christmas celebrations to talk to God in prayers and show love to the less privileged in the society. Dagunduro further said that Christmas was not about eating rice alone. In his words, “The only thing we can do is to talk to God, and let’s cut our coat according to our cloth. Christmas is not about eating rice. It’s about showing love and remembering the less privileged.
“Therefore, we should not do more than our power. Christ was born in a manger. The recession is like our manger. We need to get used to it, and with God on our side, 2017 will be bright and prosperous for this country. As a church we want to encourage President Buhari and all political leaders in our nation to continue in the fight against corruption and to have the fear of God. If we have the fear of God, we will not kill one another. If we have the fear of God, we will not engage in corrupt practices. If we fear God, we will extend hands of charity to the less privileged.”
