His words”this young generation especially the three kids that took park in the reading of the 9th lesson are not part of our security problem nor part of the economic challenge facing Nigeria, therefore, we have to call on people to throw away hatred the way Christ did and open our hearts for peace to radiat”

Pastor Udoh urged people to emulate the humidity of Jesus whom God lifted up through various means.
According to him, the book of Psalms chapter 24 line 7 to 10, pointed out places Jesus was lifted up.
According to him, there is no condemnation for those who believed in Jesus, adding that Jesus is coming soon in Glory.
The clergy however advised Christians as they wait for Jesus to come, to do away from evil activities that would hinder God’s blessings for them.
He said that the name Jesus has been lifted above all other names and that He was highly exalted the moment he ascended into heaven. Udoh further stated that the death of Jesus on the cross was payment made for our sins and that His empty tomb was the proof of payment.
Contributing, the Coordinator of Humanitarian Affairs Dr. Prince Origa urged Christians to epitomize, practice and tap the life style of Christ; embrace the core essence of Christmas which is love and shun anything that violates the rights of others and things that will bring about pains.
