Christians urged to live righteous lives



THE Parish Vicar, Saint Andrew’s Anglican Church, Awka, Reverend Canon Bonny Ogaraku has urged Christians  to amend their ways for heavenly race.

  Rev. Canon Ogaraku who gave this advice at Umuike, Awka, during the burial ceremony of Matilda Udeorah, charged Christians to have covenant of righteousness with Christ during their life time just as late Mrs Udeorah.

He extolled the virtues of late Mrs Udeora for a life well dedicated to God, encouraged the living to strive in living a righteous life so as to make heaven since there is ample opportunity for them while still alive stressing that Christ has redeemed all through his shedding of blood on the cross of Calvary.

He noted that as a committed faithful in Anglican Church, no good service would go without a blessing calling on believers to always emulate Christ and live a godly life with the intent to make heaven.

In his tribute, the deceased husband Patrick Udeorah, a community leader, commended his late wife who he said had lived a godly life while alive. In his word, “indeed we have consolations and succor that my wife been a very soldier of Christ, ran the race of her life and stood in the faith. She was one of the pillars of the church. I am not entertaining any double mind that she is in the bosom of the Lord’.

Earlier in his tribute, the deceased son, Nnamdi Udeorah, recalled how her mother had suffered to raise him and his late brother, Reverend Prince Udeorah   groaning that his brother’s death caused serious pains to their mother who could not hold it health wise till her death.

Also in their respective tributes, other of the deceased children, Kennedy and Echey described their mother as a tool in God’s vineyard stating that though is quite painful, she could not live to enjoy the fruit of her labour due to her untimely death.
