CHRISTMAS MESSAGE : Emulate God’s Love for Humanity – Obi Okafor, SAN
As we celebrate the commemoration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ today, I felicitate with members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), especially the Christian brethren.
Christmas is a season of love, peace, joy and great tidings; a period we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ; a season to give and forgive. It is a time, we are further reminded of God’s love for humanity, that he had to send his son to dwell amongst us and redeem the world.
As we celebrate Jesus Christ who is the reason for the season, I urge us to emulate God’s love for humanity and spread love, peace and unity among each other, irrespective of tribe, gender, religion or creed. Let the love of God dominate our hearts and prevail over bitterness, hatred and strife in our society.
And may the joy, love and peace of the season abide in our homes today and always.
