he General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Sunday stated that Nigeria will attain greater heights as a nation if the people are united.
He cited examples in the Holy Bible wherein God acknowledged that when people unite they can achieve unbelievable goals.
Adeboye who made the remarks while preaching during Nigeria’s 61st Independence Anniversary Church Service/Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) 45th-anniversary service told the story of how the people of Shinar united to build a tower to reach the heavens.
Gen 11:4 “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose the top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”Advertisement
“In Gen 11:6 God himself said these people are united and there is nothing they want to do that they will not do. Brethren if we are united, we can build a mighty nation…I am convinced that if we are united, God will do something special not only for CAN but also for Nigeria.
Gen. 11.4 “And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined doing.”
He furthered: “I am going to ask you to do something today, I will give you two minutes to praise God for what he has done for you, I will also ask that we should be united and praise God together; I am convinced that if we do, God will do something special not only for CAN but also for Nigeria.
“However, if you do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, the first thing you need to do is to surrender your life to Him for salvation; after which your prayers will become acceptable be to him.” He noted.
After calling for special joint prayers on the progress of individuals, families, church, and Nigeria, Adeboye urged the participants to shout three powerful Halleluyah in the affirmation that God will shock those who feel the country has finished and turn around Nigeria’s loss for bigger gains.
