By Samuel Olamide Osifuye

CAC Somolu Districts’ Coordinating Council (DCC) has celebrated her 4th Shiloh Anniversary on Sunday, 23rd June, 2024, under the theme "Walking in the Spirit and Power of Praise".

In his welcome address, the Superintendent of Somolu DCC and Akinyele Regional Secretary, Pastor E.O.O. Oyedeji urged the congregation to embrace the joyful duty of praising God, referencing Psalm 100:1-2.

Pastor Oyedeji highlighted the scriptural importance of praise, underscoring its significance with 218 mentions in the King James Version of the Bible.

According to him, "the laziness of man in praising God contrasts sharply with the unwavering devotion of all other creatures,"  pointing out that all other creatures tirelessly praise their Creator without distraction. 

Quoting Psalm 9:1-3, King David's fervent commitment to praising God with his whole heart was highlighted as a model for all believers.

The anniversary included various activities such as a child dedication ceremony for Elder and Mrs. Wale Isamotu, a Bible and church-knowledge quiz, and a pentecostal prayer session led by the Superintendent of Blessed District, Pastor Abraham Fadeyi.

In a moment of appreciation, the church honored four distinguished individuals for their dedicated service. They are, Pastor Isaac Adedayo Oketola, immediate past Somolu DCC Secretary who served for four years; Pastor Emmanuel Akinwole Komolafe, immediate past Somolu DCC Financial Secretary with 12 years of service; Elder Michael Ojo Popoola, immediate past Somolu DCC Treasurer, 14 years of service; and Pastor Zacchaeus Adebola Osinbajo, immediate past Somolu DCC Choir Coordinator, with 22 years of service.

In the delivery of the sermon titled "Power of Praise" from Acts 16:16-33, the Guest Minister, Pastor Israel Adegboyega emphasized the transformative nature of sincere praise, illustrating how it invokes divine intervention and multiplies blessings.

Citing Luke 9:16, the occasion of increase and surplus experienced when Jesus Christ gave thanks to the Father and blessed the five loaves of bread and two fish which fed 5000 men, the cleric said “Praise multiplies whatever seem insufficient.”

Drawing from biblical narratives from Jehoshaphat and Paul's experience in prison, he stressed how praise sets ambushes against adversaries and liberates believers from the grip of challenges.

The anniversary ended on a powerful note with 175 shouts of 'Hallelujah', symbolizing the congregation’s collective praise and thanksgiving to God.
