Pastor Micheal Oluwole has called on Christians to see the Christmas season as a time for sharing and to show love with the under privileged and also to rejoice about the goodness and grace of God on mankind. Oluwole, who is also the Director of Finance, Federal Radio Corperation of Nigeria (FRCN) made the call at the Christian Media Fellowship Practitioners in Nigeria (CMFPN) Christmas Carol with the theme: Experience Christmas 2018, in Abuja on Tuesday. According to him, the love of God is impartial and comes from Jesus Christ, and the same love should be showed to others through how we relate with others. Oluwole urged Christians to use the season not only in celebrating but to reach out to those who do not have anyone to care for them. “Many people hoard food items until they are eaten up by rodents and ants in the house which is against the spirit of Christmas,’’ he said. The cleric, who quoted the scripture from the book of Isaiah, Chapter 9, Verse 6 said: “We hold carol to remember the call of God upon our lives.’’ “God gave his only son and redeemed us from death, from snares of fowlers, perdition, and to appreciate his presence in our mist, we celebrate Christmas with carols. “The season that we are in is the season of love and sharing; it is the appropriate time to show that Jesus loves us.’’ Oluwole said that the season was also to appreciate God’s presence amidst of men because the redemptive sacrifice of Jesus, who was born during this period. Pastor Emmanuel Zakari, the President of CMFPN said it was a rare privilege to be called a Christian, adding that the purpose of the fellowship was to unite government-owned media in Christ.
