As the whole world is basking in the euphoria of the new year, the Minister in Charge of Christ Apostolic Church, Eternal Praise, Alakuko, Lagos, Pastor Olu Olorunpomi has stated that God is more interested in the newness of heart than in pursuit of new materials.



Pastor Olorunpomi who noted this in his "2020 Admonition to all Christians" made available to CAC NEWS also said that things of the Spirit should be more important to everyone this year because those are the realities.



In his exact words: "what makes the new year is not the day. It's not the month. 1st January is a Wednesday. There have been countless Wednesdays and January. By the way, 2020 will not be the first leap year. So what makes a new year?"



"New year resolutions have begun to fly around. Some of them will be forgotten before the end of January. So what makes the new year? By the way, what many call resolutions are just wishes that were provoked by envy or jealousy of others' achievements."



"As we begin the year 2020, let's mind the things of the Spirit more because those are the realities. We have chased shadows enough. Minding the things of God puts us on the path of peace and blissful living."



"There are too many heartaches and headaches arising from the race and the rush to catch up. Hitting and meeting targets set from carnal minds have robbed too many of the peace of God in their hearts. Whatever you set out to achieve outside God's purpose for your life is nothing less than trouble."



"God is more interested in the newness of your heart than in your pursuit of new materials. He says: A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26). Therefore, let's cry to God like the Psalmist: create in me a CLEAN HEART and RENEW a right spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10). Brethren, enough of frivolities. Let's embrace the realities. I pray joyful and prosperous new year for us all.
Maranatha!!!"
