The name Sup. Snr. Evang. J.B. Adelaja is synonymous with three distinct traits, Humility, Holiness and Passion for the service and work of God. The renowned Shepherd-In-Charge of a prominent Parish in Kosofe Local Government area under the umbrella of Celestial Church of Christ, Ogudu Expressway Cathedral, has been destined before the creation of the earth to stand behind the pulpit, set aside his enviable achievements to become a winner of souls to the kingdom of God.
Baba Adelaja as he’s fondly called, an Ijebu man to the call, a passionate Celestian and lover of children, has never been found wanting in the area of mentoring and grooming like minds to follow in his footsteps in his unblemished service to Jehovah.
No doubt, preaching the world till the Kingdom comes which is the primary assignment of every Christian, and this has been a forte that is reserved for those who are truly called of God. In this regard, Baba has never for once looked back or taken his hands from the plough as the mission bequeathed to him about eight years ago at Ogudu has grown in geometric leaps and bounds not to his glory, but to that of the one true and holy God whom he swore to serve all the days of his life. Little wonder miracles, signs and wonders have become natural at his Ogudu Expressway Cathedral.
The reported saga which was said to have generated to fisticuffs is nothing near truth, though, in a gathering of that nature, it’s expected that when the good people are gathered, the bad eggs will always mix with them…the bad ones, obviously, might have been the brains behind the unpleasant news report about the parish. Mathew 5:10 says “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
No one is perfect as Jesus Christ whom we all strive to emulate suffered criticism and prosecution even from this core disciples and followers, Baba Adelaja has equaled had his fair share of criticism and persecution, but because he is firmly rooted in the words of God and His ways, he has remained undaunted and this has seen him grown beyond the widest expectations of his detractors. Mathew 5:10 says “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Show me a man who is diligent in his ways, who can stand before kings and queens of this world and I will tell you Baba Adelaja stands tall. So for this, the Parish, CCC Ogudu Cathedral is not going through any crisis and as early reported by us. That report might have been sent out to mislead our reporters in order to cause unnecessary issue between the Shepherds, his aides and the Matron.
We sincerely apologise for the error committed by one of our reporters.
