Akindutire made the call in a sermon he preached on Sunday on: ‘We are Christ Ambassadors’.
Quoting 2 Corinthians 4 :20, the cleric
described ambassadors as representatives.
He said: “We are the epistle men are reading today; that is to say that the life we are living in our homes, neighborhoods, work places and even in churches must reflect Christ.
“You are God’s ambassadors; so, wherever you find yourself – as an administrator, civil servant, teacher, businessman/woman, trader, and even as a parent, be a true representative of Christ.
“All of us are called ministers of God, it is not only those of us that wear collars; 1 Peter, 2:9 tells us that we are a royal priesthood, a peculiar people and a chosen generation.”
He urged that Christians should be peaceful and kind, adding that they should seek the good of their families, neighbourhood and communities.
“Preach to unbelievers to repent, and remain in the faith as Christ ambassadors.
“You are not to curse, because Jesus never cursed; rather bless.
“Jesus, in the Book of John 14 :12, said, ‘Verily, Verily, I say unto you, he that believeth in me, the work that I do, shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go back to my Father,” the cleric said.
