Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has called on Nigerians to embrace the gift of righteousness and look forward to a season of happiness.
He made the call on Saturday in a chat with journalists shortly after the Christmas Service at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja as he reminded Nigerians that “God is with us” regardless of their backgrounds.
“My message for Christmas is that God Himself is with us, and that is very important because it means that we will prosper in everything that we do, and we will be blessed in everything that we do,” he said, according to a statement from his aide, Laolu Akande.
According to him, “God does not discriminate in His blessings. The Bible says that He causes the rain to fall and the sun to shine on the good and the evil alike.
“So, God does not even discriminate. He makes sure that He blesses everyone. And on this special occasion, I believe that every Nigerian should receive this great blessing that God has for us.
“I believe that we are entering into a season of God’s great blessings of peace and prosperity and all shall be well with our country, in Jesus’ name.”
Earlier in his message during the church service, Osinbajo urged Christians to remain strong in their belief in Christ, adding that the salvation of man will only come by the grace of God.
The VP, who referenced the scriptures, said the birth of Jesus Christ reignites the hopes of man for salvation especially with the knowledge that “God is with us”.
Osinbajo explained that the joy of Christ’s birth by the angels and others who witnessed it is evidence of the blessings that will be received by everyone that shares the good news.
