Christians have been admonished to emulate the humility of the Saviour, Jesus Christ, saying that anything short of being humble will not lead to the kingdom of God.
Speaking to the Christian faithful especially the congregation at Basilica of Grace (Anglican) Church at Gudu District, Abuja, Assistant Priest, Canon Thomas Chechet urged christians to always be humble in the way Jesus Christ himself was even unto death on the Cross of Calvary.
Canon Chechet whose Palm Sunday sermon titled: “Walking Worthy of Your Calling” was instructive on the occasion of Palm Sunday, a day celebrated across the world by Christians to mark the Triumphant Entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. It’s also called “Passion Sunday” or Holy Week.
The clergyman reminded the faithful that humility is a virtue they must uphold at all time, pointing out that lack of it in all spheres of live breeds contempt, quarrel, fight and separation.
Also speaking to worshippers outside the church room after the traditional Palm Sunday road procession along the busy Apo-Gudu road with members bearing palm fronds and singing “Hossana, Hossana in the Highest”, the Vicar of Basilica of Grace (Anglican) Church, Gudu, Venerable Oludare Emmanuel Otoki urged the faithful to continue in prayers throughout this period leading up to Easter Sunday when Christians will mark the Resuration of Jesus Christ after He was killed on Good Friday.
Starting from Monday, Christians are expected to spend most of the day in the church as the Holy Week has kicked in with Mary Magdalene Day tomorrow.
