Anglican Primate enjoins Christians to be good ambassadors of the church, society – VELOXNEWS


The Most Rev Henry Ndukuba, the  Archbishop, Metropolitan Anglican communion, has admonished Christians to be good ambassadors of the church and country for positive change.

He gave the advice at the service of confirmation and admission of candidates into the Women’s Guild and Mothers Union on Sunday at the All Saints Church Wuse, Abuja.

 Rev Ndukuba, also the Primate of All Nigeria, maintained that social vices had persisted because people no longer listened to each other.

The bishop said such sacraments act as a watch, reminder and guide for individuals not to lose guards in activities of the Church and society.

The Primate expressed worry on the high level of disconnect, rivalry, disunity, injustice and insecurity bedeviling the nation today.

He noted that the vices symbolised the unjust treatment of people all over the country and the world.

He explained that the sacrament of confirmation placed a responsibility on the shoulders of recipients to be ‘’Soldiers of Christ” in a world of today where the faith was constantly threatened.

“Confirmation thus and admission in various groups and positions in the Church recall that you have received the spiritual seal, the spirit of wisdom and understanding.

” The spirit of right judgement and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit of holy fear in God’s presence. Guard what you have received,” he urged.

The Primate during the sermon.
Earlier in his sermon, Bishop Ndukuba preached on the topic “the life-giving spirit”.

The primate said it was written and known that when ever and where ever the holy spirit visited, there was a turnaround for good.

He said for the current occasion, the holy spirit would visit and there would be a turn around in Nigeria and the families .

He urged Nigerians to stand strong in this perilous times, to be watchful and careful not to be caught short  by some careless attitudes.

He enjoined Christians to know that no matter the situation, they carried life and not death and would live to enjoy the fullness and  goodness of the Lord.

He said this should be done in serving the Church and rendering their services for national development in decent ways.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Primate administered the Sacrament of Confirmation on 110 youths.

Twenty eight females were admitted into the  Girls Guild while 21 for Women’s Guild and 3 into the Mother’s Union.

 They are expected to serve the Church in truth and in faith, strengthened with the holy spirits, empowered them for service all the days of their lives.(NAN)
