The Senior Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC), Ilupeju, Lagos, has challenged believers never to give in to fear, being that they are the children of the Highest God and joint heirs with Christ.
Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, who stated this during the February 5 Sunday service, encouraged Christians to always consider the boldness displayed by the disciples when they were being threatened not to speak again for the Lord.
Speaking from Acts 4:23–31, the clergy told the church that the disciples never wavered but answered the powers that be with boldness. “A Christian should follow suit by always living a life of boldness and not timidity,” he said.
Pastor Taiwo further suggested that a believer’s life should be daily loaded with miracles.
Explaining this further through the healing of the lame man in Acts 3:1–8, he revealed that Peter and John could demonstrate the power of God through them because they truly knew in whom they believed.
The clergyman also noted that God was able to manifest His power through the disciples because the atmosphere they created was the right one for them to witness the miraculous.
“They continued witnessing for Christ, with signs and wonders following and a multitude of souls being converted to the way of the Lord,” he added.
The Senior Pastor told both his online and on-site listeners that God is ready to take them through the miraculous, noting that it is a journey they have never witnessed before in their Christian walk if they will only believe.
Buttressing this statement with the testimony shared by a sister of how God showed up for her in turning her zero account balance into a huge one and offsetting her children’s school fees, he said Christian life is such that it should always show forth the glory of God.
“This kind of life can be attained if only all Christians could throw out fear and be ready to shine for God everywhere they find themselves,” he said.
