Children have been urged to have the fear of God, obey elders, parents and guardians and always have the zeal to work for God as this was the only guarantee to have successful and long lives.
These were the words of the guest minister, Pastor Ezekiel Adesuyi, during his sermon at this year’s children anniversary of Christ Apostolic Church (C.A.C), Ilu Iyanu district, Bayo Adeyemo, Oke-Ira, Ogba, Lagos State.
Adesuyi added that “the children are vital to God, just as they are precious in the eyes of their parents or guardians. It is a stage every human must pass through in life and also enjoy most. It will also shape the children’s lives and that is why it is vital that they start well, especially in the way of the Lord.”
The year’s children anniversary which was tagged: “Children are the heritage of God,” had the children of the church perform in various activities which proclaimed that they were indeed the heritage of God.
Some of the activities at the event included recitation of memory verses; special songs rendition; scriptural displays and choreography.
The matron of the children department, Deaconess Adejoke Sokoya, expressed her delight on the success of the event and assured that the authorities of the children department and the church as a whole would not relent in teaching the children the right doctrine.
The patron, Deacon Gabriel Ajani, in his remarks, stated that “our joy is that hese teachings will have impact in their lives even when they have grown up. Indeed, they are the heritage of God and I pray that God will be their shield all through their lives.”
