The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has revealed that he used to be a boxer.
Adeboye stated this on Sunday while delivering his message ‘Meant for the top’, in the church’s monthly thanksgiving service
The cleric admonished the congregation to get closer to God and keep working hard to get to the top.
According to him, his experience as a boxer taught him that it takes a lot to become a champion.
Adeboye said, “I used to be a boxer.
“And, one of the things you learn as a boxer is that it takes a lot for you to learn before you become a champion.”
“The moment you become a champion, you discover that you have just started the work.
“The champion works harder than the challenger because there are many people who want to take your position.”
