The Archbishop of Methodist Church Nigeria, Archdiocese of Lagos Mainland, Reverend Obafemi Adeleye, has urge women to obey God.
Adeleye made the call during the weekend at the maiden archdiocesan one-day Women’s Fellowship Conference, themed: “Obedience to God Better than Sacrifice”, converged at Hoare’s Memorial Methodist Cathedral, Yaba, Lagos state.
The cleric said, “Obedience is more important than sacrifice because we can sacrifice without loving God, but we obey God because we love Him.”
Nation reports that the National President of the Women’s Fellowship, Florence Uche stated that women need to be reminded of the benefits and consequences of obedience and disobedience, adding, “We are to implore ourselves on this sub-theme: ‘Obedience to God’s word, blessing to all’.
“We are to obey everything God says, honouring and respecting our husbands and leaders, doing the right thing at the right time, avoiding anything that will cause problem in the family and society, devoting time to train our children and show love and care to other children, helping to win more souls, studying the word of God and praying for our country.”
The Archdiocesan President, Veronica Adeleye, appreciated all who donated to the “Rent a Boat” project of the Fellowship.
Present at the event, Former Director-General Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation, Omotayo Omotosho call on women to live exemplary lives.
“As women, we are expected to love our husbands and in-laws unconditionally. We should not be materialistic. We should pray for our children and advise them so that they will marry the right spouses.” She stated.
