A cleric, Rev. Maxwell Onyia, has called on Christians to show exemplary leadership qualities meant to radiate the positive light of Christ in them.
Onyia, who is the Priest in-charge of Anglican Church of Ascension, Enugu, gave the admonition in a homily he delivered at the church on Sunday.
He said that it was erroneous for Christians to imitate people who are doing or getting things wrong; notwithstanding how sweet the compromise might be.
The cleric said: “As Christians, which is Christ-like; we are the light of the world.
“So, many people out there want your positive light to shine to set good, endure and positive examples.
“It is appalling that today, Christians are even the one creating new ways of cutting corners and imitating evil and wrong doing in offices and public places.”
Continuing, he said: “Our call to faith is for us to live as perfect as possible because God Almighty is perfect and He demands such from us as we engage in earthly pursuits.”
Rev. Onyia noted that due to bad examples in most places, some Christian youths now emulate the get-rich-quick and get-rich-anyhow syndromes of those who do not know God.
“Christian fathers and leaders must stand up to show good example and create time to mentor the younger ones to trust in God and wait on His great plan for their future destiny,” Onyia noted.
