1998 Christmas Message
DELIVERED BY REV A. A. BADA PASTOR & SUPREME HEAD, C.C.C. WORLDWIDE
CELESTIAL CHURCH OF CHRIST NATIONAL HEADQUATERS, MAKOKO, LAGOS, NIGERIA DECEMBER 27, 1988
Christmas is here again with us featuring its annual festivities all over the world. We give praises to the Almighty God for sparing our lives to be among those who are counted worthy of sharing the 1998 yuletide greetings with many others as we say, "Merry Christmas to you all and joyful new year in advance" in Jesus Name.
We consider it our calling to share an annual Christmas message as we humbly consider it with all people most especially in the Christendom.
Isaiah in one of his revelations about God of our salvation said, "I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me, I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, here am I" Isaiah 65:1
If there are people, priests as well as laity, who are fully conscious that the answer to our ever-recurring national or personal problems in all the facets of life is doing the will of God in accepting the grace of salvation given just for the asking, they are few and far fetched.
One way or the other in our national or personal life, in the last few months we felt like giving-up to problems which seemed to defy all human, scientific, economic, and even moral solutions. But when we least expected, God Almighty through the salvation worked out by his son our Lord Jesus Christ intervened decisively. That should be a food for thought.
Christmas time every year affords us the opportunity of receiving the salvation of our God through the birth of Christ into the world - the life of the nation, the life of everyone of us. As bad as the situation may be, even to a nation that did not call in his name. Christ has offered himself.
May our Lord Jesus Christ, the only author of our life and the guarantor of our salvation never escape our recognition and acceptance
Have a merry Christmas in Jesus name.
His Eminence, Rev. Alexander A. Bada Pastor Celestial Church of Christ, Worldwide
