Revival as Spiritual Week of Emphasis Ends
It was indeed a season of spiritual rejuvenation at the just concluded Covenant University’s Week of Spiritual Emphasis for 2013/2014 academic session.
At the end of the three-day session of prayers, praise, worship and other spiritual activities, not less than 504 people got baptised in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking with new tongues, while 137 were immersed in water for baptism.
Another 147 of the participants were among those who rededicated their lives to the service of the Lord Jesus Christ and accepted to live a new life in Christ. Also, about 73 instant testimonies of healing, deliverances and spiritual empowerments were recorded at the end of the spiritual exercise.
Speaking on the theme: “Empowerment for Exploits”, at the Impartation Service to round off the programme, the Chancellor and Chairman, Board of Regents of the University, Dr. David Oyedepo stated that, “Only true lovers of God shall become commanders of exploits."
Dr. Oyedepo defined love for God to include putting God first as a lifestyle, publicly identifying with Jesus, self denial for Christ sake and sowing ones life as a spiritual seed to God.
“Love is sowing ones life as a seed to God. When you are in love, your life is planted and you blossom. It is this virtue that turns a believer into a wonder. With the love of God in our lives, great things begin to happen on their own accord. When your love is in place, you are in command. The men that will change the world are God’s anointed lovers”, he explained.
He enjoined the assembly not to be religious but be real. “Don’t just be religious, be real. Christianity is not a religion, but a reality.” He added that, “The essence of this week of spiritual emphasis is to set a great tone for this academic session.”
