  Steadfastness to God in the face of challenges is an obligation Christians must fulfill to show their love for Him.

Speaking during a sermon on Christmas Day, Rev. Fr. Charles Egwuenu, the Assistant Parish Priest of St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Okpanam, Oshimili North Local Government Council of Delta State, said being steadfast would endear believers to God who would in turn give them their heart desires at the appropriate time.

He encouraged Christians not to despair in the face of the economic recession but to celebrate the birth of Christ with what they have. Rev. Fr. Egwuenu said that the celebration of Christmas was beyond the physical realm, being a time to share and reflect on how to live a life of appreciation to God for sending His only son to die for mankind.

The cleric exhorted believers to be joyful in the fact that they were alive and urged them not to indulge in unwholesome activities in the name of celebrating Christmas.

The highpoint of the service was a thanksgiving session by the state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, and his family.

In an interview, Mr. Ukah, and his wife, Barr. Perpetual Ukah, said the family thanksgiving was a yearly ceremony to appreciate God for His goodness to the family.

A reception was later held for guests at the Okpanam residence of the Information Commissioner.
