CU Commences Week of Spiritual Emphasis
Covenant University’s week of Spiritual Emphasis for the 2013/2014 Academic Session commenced on Thursday, September 12, 2013, on a high spiritual tone as the Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo called for escape from looming challenges of life.
The Chancellor, speaking on the theme of the week, “Empowerment for Exploits” and expounding on the riches of redemption said that new birth among others offered us ways of escape and dominion in all areas of life.
Dr. Oyedepo explained that what man lost through the first Adam was restored by the second Adam (Jesus Christ), thereby establishing the lost contact with God through redemption.
“Man is a spirit, he has a soul and lives in a body. The spirit man (the real man) died at the fall. He lost his contact with God. But the second Adam (Jesus) came to restore that lost contact through redemption”, he explained. The Chancellor explained further that exploit is not possible without spiritual empowerment, “We are gathered to be spiritually empowered for a change of life”, he noted.
Dr. Oyedepo, who is also the President of the Living Faith Church Worldwide (the proprietor base of the University), enumerated what redemption offers which include: rescue from dust; spiritual repositioning from the kingdom of darkness to kingdom of light; access to eternal life and becoming members of God’s family and joint heirs with Christ. He enjoined the assembly to jealously guard their redemption, adding that it is their most valuable asset.
The three-day event featured prayers, praise and worship sessions, song ministrations, word ministration, testimonies, drama ministrations and question and answer sessions. The event ended on Saturday, September 14, 2013, with a special anointing service.
