Pastor in charge of Restoration Hill Seventh Day Adventist Church, Ado Ekiti, Abayomi Osho has urged Christians to persist in their thanksgiving to God, stating that this had proven to be “a quickest passage to God.” Najiachurchnews reports that Osho gave the charge at Iworoko-Ekiti while delivering a sermon at the 2018 edition of the Praise Concert, themed; “Glorifying God”, held at the Motif Funland Multi-Purpose Hall in the amusement park. He said “you should glorify God in your gratitude because the quickest passage to God is through the key of gratitude. When you plug in to praise and thanksgiving, it is sure that the Lord will bestow you with His blessings. “when you glorify God in your gratitude, He will open His heavenly treasures and bless you with all that you need, irrespective of the present condition of things.” Speaking on the annual praise concert, the Cheif Executive Officer of Motif Funland Amusement Park, Iworoko Ekiti, Pastor Funmilola Aina, said God had instructed that in all situations we should praise him, “the more you thank the Lord, the more the blessings of the Lord will flow to you. “We should thank God everywhere; in church, at home, at work, outside, everywhere. Just praise the Lord. And we have come to Motif Funland to widen the scope of our praise by all of us coming together for the purpose,” she stated. A former Commissioner for Information, Youth and Sports Development, Lanre Ogunsuyi said that the praise and thanksgiving was “a veritable way of redirecting the thoughts of people, especially the youth towards God.” Traditional rulers present at the event were; Oore of Mobaland, Oba Adedapo Popoola; the Alaworoko of Iworoko, Oba M.O. Aladejana, top government functionaries and several dignitaries.
