THE Women Fellowship of Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) has concluded a week long fellowship with Rev. Musa Hassan, associated Pastor of Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN), Nassarawa Gwong Jos, calling on Christians to remain firmly rooted in Christ.
Rev. Hassan, who was Guest Preacher at the Women fellowship service took his reading from the Book of Jude 1-23 and spoke extensively on the end time Christians that were being carried away by false teachers, prophets, doctrines and miracles.
He encouraged Christians to lay their foundation in studying the word of God so as to know the truth, “for when you know the truth, the truth would set you free from any false teaching that comes from the pit of hell”.
The cleric stressed the need for Christians to remain focus in Christ, in order to achieve victory over the worldly pleasures that comes in different forms that distract them from the truth of the Gospel.
Rev. Hassan maintained that, for Christians to defend the faith, “we must contend with the faith by preaching the gospel of salvation to win souls for Christ. That is the great commission given to believers by Jesus Christ”.
He advised Christians to be very careful with “Christians” who claimed to know God, but turn out to be enemies of the cross living within us that preach false messages”.
“The problem with Christians today is that they are more concerned about miracles, not minding where such powers are coming from, the only way to know the truth and to correct such false teaching, is by constantly applying the word of God in our daily lives”, he remarked.
He admonished Christians contending for the faith to know that “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places, Christians should know that, they would be rewarded based on their deeds” he said.
THE NIGERIAN STANDARD reports that, the church auditorium was filled to capacity, adding that the service also featured songs ministration from choir and church band.
In an interview, with Rev. Hassan, he advised COCIN women and Christians to be firm and resolute and not to allow anything to distract them from contending for the faith.
“The goal of every Christian is to start well and finish well in Christ”, Rev. Hassan added.
