Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu,SAN, on Thursday attended the Global Crusade of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry in Ondo town.
The Governor led members of the State Executive Council including the Secretary to the State Government, Princess Oladunni Odu; the Head of Service, Pastor Kayode Ogundele and Commissioners as well as Special Advisers to the crusade.
Governor Akeredolu appreciated the Founder and General Superintendent of the Church, Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, who is also the convener of Global Crusade with Kumuyi (GCK) for the invitation extended to him and the warm reception.
The six days crusade titled “Triumphant Power” is holding at the Ondo Anglican Grammar School, Along Ife Road, Ondo, between Thursday, August 25 to Tuesday, August 30, 2022.
In his remarks, Arakunrin Akeredolu said he chose to attend the crusade not really as a Governor but as a Son of God who has come to praise God.
While charging the congregation to thank God for the gift of life, the Governor said he is a strong believer in the God Almighty.
Governor Akeredolu described himself as a Miracle Child, adding that those who do not believe in Miracle would not believe in his success story, particularly on his first victory as the Governor of the State.
He said:”We are talking about Triumphant Power of the Son of righteousness. All of us know who the Son of righteousness is. I can not preach to you. I can only say that I am a strong believer in my Lord Jesus Christ.
“I have said it over and over to those of you who are from Ondo state. I am a miracle child. I have confessed it severally. And I said to people, my first election here, not the one I lost, the second one that I won. I have said to people and I said over and over again. If you don’t believe in miracle, you will not believe my success at that election.
“We did it without the support of anybody except God. There is no way I will hear of such a crusade like this , in a state where God has put me as a chief servant, that I will not come. I am here, not really as a Governor, but as a son of God. I am here to praise my father.”
The convener of GCK, Pastor William Kumuyi, who delivered his sermon on “Triumphant Power of the Son of Righteousness”, admonished christians to always believe and put their trust in God.
He noted that “the Son, our redeemer is mighty to save,” hence the people should rely on God who is capable of doing all things.
The man of God explained that believers are not just children of God but sons and daughters of royalty.
