It has been reported that the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has charged churches to look beyond church buildings and focus on bringing up great leaders who will carry on the legacies of the church.
Osinbajo reportedly stated this on Sunday while leading other top government officials to the dedication of new buildings opened by the All Saints Anglican Church Wuse Zone 5, and the Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of David Parish, Utako, Abuja.
Osinbajo made it known that, “The dedication of the physical building called the church must only remind us that the real work of building the church is that of bringing up men and women in the knowledge and nurture of the Lord.”
He stated that, “The forces of evil and hate are more vehement than ever. The battle between light and darkness is more intense than ever, but we will prevail.”
Alluding to the biblical David, Osinbajo disclosed that, “David only thought, he did not build a church, he thought about building a church and the Lord blessed his generations forever. But you have not only thought of building a Church, you have built a church. So, the wonders and miracles of God will attend to you and your families forever more in the name of the Lord Jesus.”
