Cheers as CPM celebrates Winning Family

Anthony Iwuoma

The glory cloud came down last week at Christian Pentecostal Mission, CPM, Agodo Branch, Lagos, when it celebrated its 2019 Family Week.

Themed the ‘Winning Family’, the programme started on Monday, November 11 and came to a rousing climax on Sunday, November 17. Whereas activities for the first two days, Monday and Tuesday, were held in the branch’s six zones, the main event shifted to the church’s auditorium at 25, Amudalatu Street, Agodo Egbe in Egbe –Idimu LCDA, from Wednesday.

The Head Pastor of CPM, Festac Branch, who is also the Area E Supervisor of CPM branches in Lagos, Rev. Paul Chikwem, was the guest minister and was ably supported by the host pastor, Rev. Goodness Irigwe. They ministered with full  backing of the the unction of the General Overseer, of CPM, Rev. Dr. O. Ezekiel, and the National/Int’l. Coordinator, Rev. Dr. Mercy Ezeekiel.

Highlights of activities included praise and worship, word ministration, drama, debate, bible recitation and quiz, etc.

Speaking on  ‘Characteristics of winners’, Rev. Irigwe posited that winners are united, go-getters, courageous, determined, faithful and influential, among other qualities. He added that winners don’t believe in failure and are prayerful people.

On the last day of the programme, Rev. Chikwem captivated the congregation with his soulful ministration style, lazed with melodious songs. He dwelt on the story of the impotent man healed at the pool after 38 years, as recorded in John 5.

He led the congregation to confess positively, saying: “I am singled out; singled out to succeed, singled win battles of life, singled out not die in shame; singled out of sorrow and hardship,” and then declared: “if others are failing in life, you are singled out as a winner in the battle of life, singled out to excel, “ among others.

Rev, Chikwem pointed out that the sick man had been impotent for 38 years without getting healed; yet he was in the church where others were getting their miracles and testifying. He noted too that after Jesus healed the man, He asked the man to take up his bed, which had obviously become rotten after 38 years.

The man of God reasoned that many like the man, could be in the midst of glory in the church but yet miss it. Nevertheless, the man had remained and did not run away from church, as a lot of believers do. He stayed put and waited upon the Lord until the day of his visitation.

The cleric further noted that Jesus asked the man to take up his tattered bed so that he would not forget where God had picked him from, as many are wont.

Rev. Chikwem encouraged believers to remain humble, faithful and avoid running around for quick fixes because God would surely remember them.

There were several presentations that lifted the souls of participants in the week-long event, which attracted guests from far and wide. Prizes were also given to deserving workers of the Family Fellowship, organisers of the event, headed by Sister Lillian Onyekaba.

However, Rehoboth Zone emerged the best zone while Church Zone came second.
