Adeboye advises students to shun vices, pursue excellence
THE General Overseer, The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Adejare Adeboye, has called on students to pursue excellence and see God as the ultimate in their academic goals.
Ministering and praying for students Monday at the RCCG headquarters, The Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, during the programme organised with the theme: “Power to be the best”, Adeboye told them that their desire to build a robust future through education can only be achieved when God is placed in the fore-front.
We have examples in the bible of people like Daniel who excelled in wisdom because he had the spirit of God. God wants you to be the best. It is good to be rich, but it is better to be wealthy, while to flourish is the best, which is God’s will for you.
“There are lots of ‘wisdom’ in this transient and dirty world, but having the wisdom that comes from God is the best and you will be wiser than anyone who gets his wisdom from any other source apart from God,” he admonished them.
Adeboye also told them to quit evil and inordinate ambition, which had characterised the educational sector, with many students striving to cut corners without aiming at diligence.
Meanwhile, the Presiding Bishop, Rhema Christian Church & Towers, Taiwo Akinola, has tasked politicians to be patriotic for the nation to experience the desired change.
The cleric stated this when he spoke at the on-going Rhema World Convention 2015 with the theme: “Wonderful Jesus” which would end November 8, 2015 at Champion Peace Cathedral, Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway, Temidire, Sango Ota, Ogun State.
He called on Nigerians to abandon all negative utterances capable of truncating God’s divine plan for the nation and rather appreciate Him for placing the country above daunting challenges that confronted her, affirming that Nigeria has a bright future.
