According to him this is not the time for sexual experimentation; it is not the time for clubbing and not the time for partying.

“Let us celebrate Christmas with great joy for it is the birth of our salvation that has brought grace to mankind.

“The season is all about showing love and making sacrifices for our neighbours and for the poor.

According to Pastor Adaji, the ability to give in the present economic situation shows the extent to which one can sacrifice for Christ.

He stressed that unnecessary desperation that puts one at risk must be avoided this season and beyond.

“This is the time you see people drive carelessly because they want to meet targets; it is uncalled for; as we celebrate we must do everything to please God; everything must evolve around Christ.

“While eating and drinking and in celebration mood, do not forget the poor.

“It is a season of love; make sure you extend a hand of care to the under privileged ones around you to promote unity and peace in the country.
