God is counting on you, don’t disappoint Him, Cleric advises Christians

The Zonal Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Light of the World Zone, Pastor Doyin Adeyemi has said serving God is a privilege, but it is demanding, and to whom much is given, much is expected, saying that God is counting on us as Christians and we shouldn't disappoint Him.

He said Jesus has given us good examples of how to face some life’s challenges and all we need to do is to keep focusing on him as we move on in our Christian walk.

Pastor Adeyemi stated this in message titled "Looking Unto Jesus" published on his official website (https://doyinadeyemi.com/).

Taking the text from Hebrews chapter 12 verses 1-3, Pastor Adeyemi stated that Christianity is being conformed in the image of God’s Son and the essence of the Christian life is “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

He further stated that Christianity, therefore, has to do with continually looking unto Jesus, trustfully, submissively and lovingly, adding that it is a heart occupied with, and a mind stayed on Him.

"Genuine Christianity is a life lived in communion with Christ; the living Christ must be the passion and reality of souls. He must own all we have (Philippians 1:20; Galatians 1:20). The secret of our intimate personal relationship with the Lord is a personal experience with the crucified and resurrected Christ. Our sufficiency to live in the Christian life is found in Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8)."

"So in your Christian walk, there are many challenges, many distractions and many frustrations. There are many times when things seem not working, there are times of internal battles, but one thing that will keep you moving is to look not unto man, but unto Jesus. When you look unto man, there is an imperfection in man. Sometimes people are not who you think they are; your so-called role model might have secret pit-falls. There are times when people who are supposed to be your mentors stand as your tormentors," he noted.

Pastor Adeyemi stressed that Christian walk could be demanding, and sometimes, it’s as if you are sinking, but when you focus on Jesus, no matter how deep you sink, you will surely come out.

Pastor Adeyemi stated that "to look unto Jesus is to trust Him to fulfil His promises; to look unto Jesus is to see Him in all your life’s challenges.To look unto Jesus is to see Him on your side when others are against you; to look unto Jesus is to see Him as the only one who can reward your service; to look unto Jesus is to follow His example."
