Christmas Greetings - For Such A Time as This- Give Thanks

Oh yes for such a time as this, let NIFES family members give thanks to God, the Highest.

The year 2020 is a peculiar year. It is a year that we cannot forget in a hurry. It is the year that COVID-19 pandemic came visiting unannounced and then ravaged the world drastically. For us in Nigeria, it is the year of #endsars protests across the states. The protests also came alongside with palliative lootings. In all of this P’s – pandemic, protests and palliative lootings, lives were lost and maimed but you and I were not a prey to them. Praise the Lord!!!

So therefore, for such a time as this in which God graciously preserved our lives let us give thanks!!! Truly “if the Lord had not been on our side when people (challenges and situations likewise) attacked us, they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us; - Psalms 124: 2 – 3. We would have been consumed in the storm of 2020. Oh, NIFES family, for the gift of life especially and specifically, let us praise and thank God.

It is also possible that we may have been affected by the aftermath of these challenges in one way or the other – economic downturn, loss of jobs, death of close friends/relatives’ etcetera, but in the words of the Scripture we are still admonished “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

Dearly beloved, I call on you, other members of NIFES family and friends and partners of NIFES to celebrate this year’s Christmas and New Year seasons with joy, praises and thanksgiving to God because God did not only save our souls from eternal damnation but also preserved our lives here on earth with divers’ blessings.

Oh, give thanks. In spite of the various lockdowns this year, ministry to NIFES students and associates was not hampered. NIFES Virtual Ministry (NVM) was active all the way. Thousands of students were reached virtually with various Discipleship, leadership development & entrepreneurship programs. Numerous associates were better equipped for digital ministry to youths and students

God bless you richly. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
