Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has called on Christians to reflect on the lessons of the birth of Jesus Christ as they go about celebrating the Yuletide.

Okowa said this at the weekend during the silver jubilee celebration and foundation laying ceremony of a twin pastorium at the Divine-Way Baptist Church, Asaba, saying Christ came that the world would be saved from sin, therefore, Christians have to intensify efforts at soul-winning to bring man back to God.

The governor, while congratulating the church on its 25th anniversary celebration, said: “Christians should use the occasion to exhibit Godly virtues and render humanitarian services to mankind for the betterment of the nation and the sustenance of peace.”

He further pointed out that the coming year would usher in more good tidings of love and unity and urged the Christian faithful to deepen their love for Christ.

However, in his remarks, Chairman of the occasion and former governor of the state, Chief James Ibori, said he was happy with the rapid growth of the church and wished them many more fruitful years in serving God.

He also called on Christians not to be weary in well-doing, especially giving to the work of God in the church and the propagation of the gospel.
