An ace gospel Musician, Evangelist Ojo Ade has said that patients, contentment and shunning worldliness in the task of evangelizing the world through songs that God has given to him has been his staying power in gospel ministry.
Ojo said this in an interview with The Nation yesterday at the 10th anniversary of Mantle Prayer Ministry (Oke Isimi) yesterday in Shagamu, Ogun State.
He said that absolute yieldedness to God and “my unretlnesness commitment to God and running away from every acts of worldliness in ministry has kept me strong in the lord for over 40 years.”
“As a singer, like those who know my songs, I do not add worldliness. All my songs are for God’s glory and leading men to heaven”, he said
He said that it is evident around that there are lots of false prophets and evangelists who have crept into the body of Christ and have been deceiving many people but their end will be disastrous.
“If we stay on the lord and you are patient, God will take you to where he want to take you to. He has plan for everyone. Everyone has its own time and when your own time comes God will glorify himself”.
He cited the scriptures stating that godliness with contentment is a great gain, adding that if you are not contented with what God has given to you, you will run into problems, you will not make progress.
He lamented the that crave for money, power and fame which has led many Nigerians to kidnapping, killing, adding that unless we go back to God, Nigeria will continue to go through untold hardship and pan.
“We are a religious people but religious without the fear of God is meaningless. There is no fear of God and those who seem to be religious do not fear God. So, if this nation will be great, Let us go back to God, he is merciful and we will experience great mercy.
