Christians have been called upon to always appreciate the Lord as the only Provider of all the material and spiritual needs of man.
Venerable Isiah Ogungbade made the remarks when delivering sermon at the Annual Harvest at the Ebenezer African Church, Ibogun Akiode, near Ifo, on Sunday.
Venerable Isiah Ogungbade said that Christians must always remember that without the support and blessings of God, they would be labouring in vain.
He warned people against believing that without the Lord, they could achieve anything.
The Venerable commended the leadership of the Ebenezer African Church, Ibogun Akiode, for what they were doing to make the Church grow, adding that they should do more.
He prayed that the next harvest would be better and more rewarding to every member of the Church and Christian communities.
Also speaking, at occasion, the Balogun of Ibogun, Gbogbogbo OgoOluwa Bankole, enjoined members, especially the youths of the Church not to be miserly, but ensuring that they are contributing to the running of the Church.
Chief Bankole said that it was incumbent on the youth to take and exchange the baton of leadership from the Elders who had been paying their dues for many decades.
The officiating Ministers were Reverend M OlaOlu Sowemimo, GL Siji Odebunmi Evangelist Oluyemi Akintunde (Mrs) Adeola Ogunleye.
