Xtians have been advised to live a godly life so that they could prosper in all they do.
The Rt Rev.Dr Diamond Emuobor, Bishop of Trinity Gospel Mission, Ughelli gave the advice in an interview during the occasion of the launch of a book he authored title ‘’Live as God’ at the church auditorium, Thursday, Oct.22.
He said when Christians live a Godly life their character would change and situation which hitherto appeared difficult would become easy for them.
He said he was motivated to write the book after observing the level of moral decadence in the society, the prevalence of corruption in every sector of economy, the plummeting of value system and the attendant social chaos that has left the average Nigerian Christian in confusion.
Bishop Emuobor remarked that the book is a clarion call for Christians to change their ways and be connected to the pattern of life exemplified by Jesus Christ to make them a true reflection of God who created man in his own image.
Born into a pagan home, Bishop Emuobor said since he found God and was called to preach Christ, he has known peace and was delighted for the launch of the book which coincided with his 40th year anniversary in the ministry of evangelism.
‘’We must live as God so that we will have something to show God as gratitude for His great benevolence to us.
The 154 page and 11 chapter book was review by POC Akoriefe who recommended the book for every Christian home as a guide for their Christian life and living so that after death “we shall see God and be with him ‘’he said.
