With respect to the recent crisis in Nigeria, Pastor Paul Eneche, the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre has urged the citizens of the country not to give up on their country as well as trust God for a better Nigeria.
This statement was made in a sermon at the Church Headquarters in Abuja on Sunday during a program tagged “the day of outreach and prayers”
Pastor Eneche, however, cautioned Nigerians against pessimistic opinions about Nigeria as according to him:
“A lot of people are disappointed at the turn of things in the country, but we must all believe that hope is not lost. We must be optimistic and trust God for a better Nigeria.
He further explained how dangerous it is to give up on Nigeria: “It is dangerous to give up on Nigeria. We cannot risk that because this is the only country we have. We must keep hope alive.”
He affirmatively declared God’s unending love for Nigeria: “God, who brought us from yesterday into our today, will take us from our today into a tomorrow of answered prayers”.
“If not for God and prayers, there will have been no Nigeria today; there are nations that did not face half of what Nigeria has faced and are today in serious turmoil.
“We must be grateful to God at all times for life and peace because there is always something to be grateful to God for,” he said.
Knowing fully well that death is inevitable, he buttressed on focusing on eternity: “Those who live by the sword shall die by the sword; a day of judgment shall definitely come. It doesn’t matter what you have, one day your heart will stop beating, your breath will stop, and blood will stop flowing from your veins.
“When you are gone, nothing will follow you to your grave or to the life after; you will appear before your maker and what you killed to get will not be useful to you.
“After death comes judgment; everyone will face a Judge, God, an authority that cannot be influenced. A Judge that cannot be compromised and cannot be bribed. That day is coming for everyone because there is life after life,”
Media practitioners are however also Nigerians which implies they cannot be left out in the affairs of the country
“work closely with God”
“Journalists must write and speak the truth at all times. It is the only way to make Nigeria a great nation,”.
