Pastor Adeboye Tasks Youths on Hard Work:
General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church Of God, (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Sun-day advised youth to be diligent, hardworking, and always exhibit the fear of God in order to succeed in life, reports OLAYINKA LATONA.
Adeboye made the charge at a special thank-sgiving/prayer service organized for students by the national headquarters of the church, Throne of Grace, Ebute Metta. According to him, there are several opport-unities for young people who will dare to dream big and work hard to-ward actualizing the dreams with Godly principles.
The man of God noted that there are many youths who are short-changing themselves from their God-given talents and opportunities because they lack fore-sight, vision and goals for themselves.
He reminded the con-gregation that during his days as a lecturer at the University of Lagos: “l had a goal to become the youngest vice chancellor in Africa and I worked hard at achieving it but God had a better plan for me and I am grateful to Him”.
Using biblical Joseph as a case study, Adeboye said: “The life of Joseph is a lesson for every one of us as he took a decision that no matter the condition, he would work hard and will not sin against God as he walked up to the top of the ladder in life”.
Continuing, Adeboe said: “I am ready to offend the whole world as long as I will not offend God. It is never fun to offend God. If you want to follow the crowd, you will end up in perdition with the crown.” (Vanguard)
