Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged Christians to reciprocate Christ’s sacrifice on the cross by being righteous and worshipping him.
Osinbajo made the call on Friday night at the Pan African Gathering Conference for 2015 of House of Revival Church, Brakpan, South Africa.
He said that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was profound because He was crucified for the sins of the world.
According to Osinbajo, the prophetic gathering was special because God works in a miraculous way.
“ This prophetic gathering is very special indeed. One of the reasons why it is special is because it just shows you God works.
“ God doesn’t look at size, he doesn’t look at anything fancy, he just does it in accordance with His grace and mercy.
“ I was sitting here in 2013 when a prophecy was made that I will be vice president of Nigeria and I didn’t take it seriously,“ he said.
Osinbajo, who said the prophecy had shown that God works in an incredible way, added that the head of the church at the end of March 2015 predicted that there would be a mighty honour for him.
The vice president prayed that God should bless that gathering and answer their prayers.
“I want us to bear in mind that what makes Jesus Christ special and what makes that sacrifice special is because Christ is so life transforming and Christ is God almighty,“ he said.
The General Overseer of the House of Revival Church, Pastor Daniel Awusanya, said he was linked with Nigeria 16 years ago when he worked with Osinbajo at the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
He said God was building a new Africa and would make it a unique continent.
“ God said he will build a new Nigeria, a Nigeria of honour. This government will be one of the best in Africa, with honour and integrity,“ he said.
Awusanya prayed God to give Osinbajo divine wisdom to contribute to the building of a new Nigeria.
The President of Nigeria Union in South Africa, Mr Ikechukwu Anyene, and some executive members attended the service.
