Pastor Femi Megbope of The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC) has urged church members to know that there is a purpose and a season for everything.
He also told the congregation that seasons do not last forever, adding, “Though as a man, you can wish that some seasons are prolonged because of what you benefit and enjoy from those seasons, but no season lasts forever. Once a season rolls out, another roll in, but God’s faithfulness stands sure”.
Speaking during the August 10 Thursday Showers, the cleric equally encouraged everyone present to thank God for the life of Pastor Taiwo Odukoya for finishing well and how God used him for birthing the great commission, ‘The Fountain of Life Church’.
On his part, Pastor Gbenga Onabanjo, while officially announcing the passing of the Senior Pastor of the church, encouraged the congregation to be grateful to be mentored by Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and not question God.
In his words: “With gratitude to God Almighty for us to have been fathered and mentored by a rare general in the Lord’s Army; God is sovereign, He chooses whom He wills, He wills whom He chooses.
“We all as individuals have definite assignments given to us by God, and therefore, I believe Pastor Taiwo has finished his assignment, and God has brought him home to join the saints”.
Pastor Ladipo Babatunde, “Many people, many Christians, do carry the gifts, but only very few carry the scars of war”.
Referencing 2nd Corinthians 5:1-8 and Psalms 85:6-7, the clergyman posited that “Pastor is absent in the body, but he is present in the Lord”, even as he further encouraged the church to lift the family, children, church, and the body of Christ in prayers and to pray for the ‘wind of revival’ to blow over the TFOLC.
Pastor Tosin Sowemimo had this to say: “Our father, Pastor Taiwo, left us so many legacies, one of the loudest is worship. Our God is always faithful, our God is always true, our God is always holy, even when we don’t have the answers, even when we don’t understand, even when it hurts, we worship”.
She, therefore, led the congregation in several songs of worship in appreciation to God for the well-lived life of the Senior Pastor to round off the one-hour service.
