During the Christmas Eve Service, the Christ Embassy community was decorated to reflect the joyous atmosphere, as everyone awaited the seasonal sermons of our Man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
In addition to messages from the United Kingdom, South Korea, South Africa, Canada, the United States, Nigeria, and Lebanon, it was indeed a global service. As the international family radiated the season’s glory, this enhanced the atmosphere and elevated the celebration.
The discussion of their favorite moments at Christmas was insightful. When Pastor Chris teaches, we all have moments of revelation that we can relate to. A fourth man who came to visit Jesus was mentioned as an insight. The panel agreed that Pastor Chris preaches a message like that every Christmas when we learn we are the fourth man.
Pastor Chris opened by saying, “on this special night, we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ!” He continues by saying, “His glory is beyond description and can never be overthrown. And when I think about Jesus, I think how great God is, as he is revealed to us in Jesus Christ. He was God’s wisdom manifested; He was God’s love poured out; He was God’s life unveiled; He was God’s truth revealed – Jesus Christ, son of the living God.”
Pastor Chris’s teaching continues as he says, “These are the words to live by when you think of Christmas: It is much more than a holiday. It is a good time to think of what we already got in our lives – Look at what we got! It is truly about the birth of the kingdom of heaven.”
Throughout this celebratory sermon, Pastor Chris makes sure to mention many valuable quotes from the bible, one of which is from Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
Pastor Chris elaborates by saying, “Your life has already been written; Don’t live another man’s story. Don’t try to live another dream; Find out what God dreamed for you. Find out God’s plans for your life – You must discover God’s plan and walk in it. He already prepared your life. Why struggle to live another life?” finally, Pastor Chris sums up by saying, “He (Jesus Christ) was born to bring you to perfect harmony with the father – the perfect will of God. That’s what your life is for; You were born for God’s glory. Let us begin the new year by fulfilling God’s plan for us – Hallelujah!”
Man of God, Pastor Chris, had summed up the event by blessing all the talented dancers, choir members, and singers who took part in this glorious occasion. Pastor Chris finally joined in with a joyful “we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.”
While we are in high spirits, we should look forward to the New Years’ Service with Pastor Chris’s miracles and the Future Africa Leaders’ Awards (FALA) event on December 31st. As expected, there will be more delightful pearls of wisdom from Pastor Chris’s teachings.
