Easter: Muoka calls on Christians to mend their ways




Mouka gave the advice on Monday at the end of the Three-Day Easter Crusade entitled “God’s Covenant of Peace and Blessin’’ at its National Headquarters, Surulere, Lagos.

“Seeing that Jesus Christ has taken away all our sorrow, my advice to Nigerians is that they should all come to Christ according to His invitation.

“There are a lot of problems here and there but it is only in Him that we have freedom and solutions.

“All should give their lives to Christ and mend their ways and begin to live their life according to the will of God.

“I believe Nigeria’s problem which is man-made can be solved as we should give our life to Christ because God has solution to the sin of Adam that brought suffering to humanity through Jesus Christ.

“So, we should embrace Christ so that all our problems will be over and in Him, we can be able to live a victorious life and overcome all the challenges in this life.

“Vices like killing, robbery and any form of wickedness, if everyone repents, the matter will be resolved but if we are trying to bank on human security, it has limitations. It fails if Christ is not there,’’ Mouka said.

Speaking on the continued detention of Leah Sharibu by the insurgents, Muoka said that it behoves on everyone not just the government to pray for the release of Miss Sharibu.

“My advice is to everyone not just the government; everyone including the leaders should pray that God should intervene in this matter. This issue concerns us all.

“So, everybody should pray so that the people holding Leah Sharibu will release her and she will be free and it is only God that can do it,’’ the cleric said.

Speaking on the significance of Easter, Mouka said that with the death, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, He paid the ultimate price.

“Over 2000 years ago, Christ paid the price for our sins. He was killed, buried and on the third day he rose from dead for our justification.

“That is why Christians all over the world are celebrating Easter,’’ Mouka said.
