A cleric, Reverend Isaac Omolehin of World Assembly Church, has stated the essence of living righteously and cultivating the habit of impacting in people’s lives positively.
He also urged people not to misuse the grace and opportunities in their lives, saying, “the value of what makes a man is not what he does for himself, but what he does for others.”
Reverend Omolehin gave this admonition during a sermon at the fifth remembrance service of the wife of the music legend and the General Overseer of Decross Gospel Mission (DGM), Evangelist Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi, Evangelist Juliana Obey-Fabiyi, last week in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
According to Omolehin, “God will not reward man for what he does for himself, but how he has affected people’s lives positively. This is the most important thing every human must be conscious of in life. What we do to ourselves will not count before God. How we have affected people’s lives, no matter how little, will give us rewards before God and speak volumes of us in afterlife.”
The remembrance service also had in attendance House of Representatives member, Agege constituency, Honourable Taofeek Adaranijo; the Lagos State Commissioner for Environment, Dr Samuel Adejare; gospel music legend, Evangelist Joseph Adelakun; family members and well-wishers, while the DGM choir also performed a song ministratin that focused on following Christ and living virtuously.
The eldest child, Mr Shina Obey-Fabiyi, thanked everyone who came to celebrate with the family on the remembrance of their mother who died on August 23, 2011.
