2 Akindutire made the call in a sermon he preached on Sunday on: ‘We are Christ Ambassadors’.
3 Quoting 2 Corinthians 4 :20, the cleric
described ambassadors as representatives.
4 He said: “We are the epistle men are reading today; that is to say that the life we are living in our homes, neighborhoods, work places and even in churches must reflect Christ.
5 “You are God’s ambassadors; so, wherever you find yourself – as an administrator, civil servant, teacher, , trader, and even as a parent, be a true representative of Christ.
6 “All of us are called ministers of God, it is not only those of us that wear collars; 1 Peter, 2:9 tells us that we are a royal priesthood, a peculiar people and a chosen generation.
8 He urged that Christians should be peaceful and kind, adding that they should seek the good of their families, neighbourhood and communities.
9 “Preach to unbelievers to repent, and remain in the faith as Christ ambassadors.
10 “You are not to curse, because Jesus never cursed; rather bless.
11 “Jesus, in the Book of John 14 :12, said, ‘Verily, Verily, I say unto you, he that believeth in me, the work that I do, shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go back to my Father,” the cleric said.
