A Christian cleric, Pastor Austin Nchuchuwe, has called on Nigerians to regularly reflect on their lives with a view to avoiding evil acts and their consequences.
Nchuchuwe, the Pastor in charge of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Upper Room Area, Ojodu, Lagos, made the call in a sermon he preached on Saturday evening.
The pastor preached at a commendation service in honour of the late Pastor Obiajulu Okisor, husband of a Senior Editor of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mrs Angela Okisor, at Journalists’ Village, Àrepo, Ogun.
The cleric warned that evil acts would have consequences here, on earth, and hereafter.
“A sin you committed will either be in your front, ahead of you, or behind you. It will surely have consequences, “ he said.
The cleric said that Nigeria would be a better place if the citizens would make up the minds to avoid all form of unrighteousness.
Nchuchuwe described death as a ‘joker’ that could come at any time upon any man irrespective of creed, social status, age, position or race.
He advised Nigerians to seize any opportunities to impact lives and contribute to societal development.
He described the deceased as a child of God, who impacted lives around him.
The cleric added that the late Okisor loved, preached and served Jesus Christ.
“ He was straightforward, reliable and caring.
“He was a leader of leaders. When you saw him, you saw Christ,” the cleric said.
NAN reports that the deceased, aged 57, died on Feb. 3 following an illness.
He is survived by Angela and three children.
His remains will be interred on March 13 at his home town, Ibusa, Delta.
