The Convener, Sendforth the Light Missions Outreach, Brother Ifeanyi Okorocha, says Christ has called us to send light to every dark corners of the world, emphasizing the need for Christians to live exemplary lives to gain eternity.

He said Christians should be prepared always for heaven, noting that no one knew when Christ would come, even as he insisted that His coming was near.

Brother Okorocha stated this at the annual programme of the mission, entitled “Breakfast with the King” held in Enugu on Saturday.

Dwelling on the theme of the seminar, “The Cross and the Coming Glory,” brother Okorocha said he had been called by God to preach the gospel, win souls for Him, and liberate those under the power of darkness.

He said, “I will close my eyes, I will see the cross, I will be in the Church, I will see the cross. It is just the cross: at times you see a figure hanging on it and I became worried because this has been going on overtime.”

Explaining further, Brother Okorocha said he decided to ask what was there about the cross and from his enquiry and the answers he got, including what the Bible said about it, it was clear that he needed no prophet to tell him that he had been called to preach the cross.

“So, henceforth, my message is about the cross,”he concluded.

For his part, the Enugu Co-ordinator of the Mission, Dr. Noble Idika, noted that nobody gained eternity without the cross.

Dr. Idika charged adherents to focus on God, trusting in His ability to save.

Earlier in a presentation, Bishop Obi Onubogu of the Rock Cathedral, Enugu, admonished the faithful to focus on the cross and remain steadfast in God, not minding the distractions, insisting that the way to the cross was not a tea party.

According to Bishop Onubogu, Christ endured the cross, he despised the shame and pain of the cross.

He said the 21st century Christians was not ready to endure anything, rather always in a hurry for everything, expressing unhappiness that they give up at every little disappointment.

“We are saying the body of Christ must return to the work of the cross. The cross guarantees you success, but the cross does not guarantee you comfort. The cross can guarantee that you succeed. People may laugh at you, but in all, remain steadfast.

“Let’s arise from pressure, pressures in the nation, let’s arise, let’s minister to the government, let’s minister to the President, to the governors. We’re the carriers of the anointing of God,” Bishiop Onubuogu added.

Also, pastor from Anambra State, the Reverend Great Nnamani, said the pathway to glory required remaining consistent in the principles of God.

The Rev. Nnamani said Christians must not be carried away by the things of the world.

He challenged Christians to draw strength from God, knowing they were carrying His anointing.

Some of the participants commended brother Okorocha for the programme, adding that it had rejuvenated their desire for God.

The prayer conference attracted ministers of the gospel from different Christian denominations across the southeast of the country.
