The Zonal Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Transfiguration Zone, Pastor Emmanuel O. Odejobi has urged every Christian to imbibe godly character, saying that godly character is far better than 21 days of fasting and prayer.



While saying that no one can use fasting and prayer to bribe God, the Cleric stated that anyone who wants to enjoy the grace of God must deny ungodliness.



Pastor Odejobi said this while ministering on the topic "Grace and Glory" at the 20th anniversary thanksgiving service of Christ Apostolic Church, Transfiguration Hill, Sango District Headquarters on Sunday November 17, 2019.



According to him, the greatest title one should endeavour to have is sonship to God.



Pastor Odejobi who also condemned worldly dancing styles which are gradually creeping into the church said it is part of the signs of end time.



He stressed that every Christian must be ready to resist worldly things of the end time.

  1. Practicing godly character in this dispensation is really a huge taske for Christians especially youth of today. Let not our fathers and mothers in the Lord ceased to keep on encourageencouraging and diminishing us to reveal good and standard behavior in our society. What life is revealing is not helping at all. Only Grace the grace of God and His spirit can make us sail through this corrupted world. I pray for Power and Love of Christ to be rekindled In us.

  4. Meaning, no need for fasting and prayers when you have Godly character,right?

    Interestingly, there's nothing like Godly character without fasting and prayers. Even Jesus Christ that's Lord fasted for forty days and forty nights.

    More so, read what Jesus told his disciples: Jesus said in Mark 9:29 "And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting." This was after his disciples asked Jesus why they couldn't cast out the spirit of deaf and dumb from the boy in that chapter. You see, fasting and prayers are key Godly character. Shalom!!!

  6. Baba said you can't bribe God when you said you're fasting at the same time you indulge in or engaged yourself in all sorts of ungodly/immoralities of the world. He didn't condemned fasting
