Exercising faith in God attracts great possibilities for individuals and society in general.
The presiding pastor of Agodi Baptist Church Ibadan, Reverend Ademola Mabawonku stated this during a sermon to mark the first Sunday of Lenten season in Ibadan.
In a sermon entitled “The Significance of Symbols in the Miraculous Catch of Fishes by Jesus” to mark first Sunday of the Lenten season, Reverend Mabawonku explained that at the sea of Galilee, Jesus used the miracle of catching fish to teach the significance of having faith in God.
Reverend Mabawonku Pastor, therefore, encouraged Christians to always exercise faith in God, and also be unrelenting in their service to God and mankind.
The cleric admonished the faithful to use the period of Lenten season to show love and assist the less privileged and to pray for good developments as the Country is set to get new leaders.
Reverend Mabawonku urged political party candidates to eschew violence and exhibit good sportsmanship when results are announced.
