The Senior Pastor of Will of God Evangelical Ministry Lagos, Pastor Smart Emiyan has urged Senator Orji Uzor Kalu not to relent in discharging his duty as a major political stakeholder in Nigeria.
Pastor Emiyan stated this while reacting to the ‘politically motivated’ retrial of the Senate Chief Whip and former Governor of Abia State.
In a Sunday Sermon monitored by the press, titled ‘Light at the end of the tunnel’; the cleric told Senator Kalu not to be distracted by enemies of progress, stating that his retrial would propel him to greater political height.
“Senator Kalu should be proud of himself because his people and those he is representing loves him so much; He should be happy because he has exceptional grace from God ; I have had an encounter with lots of them from Abia and they told me Senator Kalu has done well as a Senator; even when he was a governor, he did very well.
“If the people you represent loves you, God cannot abandon you. At the end of the tunnel, surely, there would be light.
“On this alter, I am calling on him not to give up. Continue doing the great things you are known for; your political elevation is waiting for you at the end of this politically motivated trial. You will sit on that exalted seat .
“Also forgive those who instigated this evil against you, for their day of judgement is near”
He further compared the trial of Senator Kalu to the Biblical Joseph
“We all go through different trial and seasons in our lives whether it be financially, physically (being sick), etc. but there is a promise that God gives us that I would like to share with you; He does not abandon His own. Senator Kalu, you’re not alone!
“We have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
“Jesus Himself said “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:10).”
The Man of God further urged the former Governor to be proud of himself because he has touched many lives positively and that his legacies are so glaring for all to see.
