Indeed, the Christendom experienced the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ all over again on the 10th of December, 2017 as The Life Centre - a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God hosted the general public to a merry Christmas Carol night. If you can remember we talked about it in the past ( Click HERE to read previous post)
The night was filled with God's presence, joy and laughter as guests from in and outside Abuja attended. One very special person who took time out in his busy schedules to attend the occasion is the Vice President of Nigeria, His Excellency, Prof Yemi Osinbajo
Pastor Odun Emasealu, the senior pastor of the church in his speech stated:
"Some years back, some three men went into a city and they were asking for directions. Saying that they were looking for a king who had just been born. Looking at the direction of the stars, they followed and people thought they were crazy."
"Our story is simple, it is the story of the activities and presence of the Prince of Peace in our midst.
We decided to revive and unveil the real Christmas - celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ!"
"Christmas is not just about rice and chicken, it is about acknowledging grace.
If oxygen had not been free, by now people would have been selling it. So God decided to make it free."
"If Peace were not free, it would be one of the most expensive commodities.
God knew this and decided to make it free by the birth of his son Jesus Christ."
"I want to encourage you as we enter the new year to seek peace. It is free." He concluded.
