Pastor Mrs Ibijoke Ogundipe of the Cherubim & Seraphim (C&S) Movement Church Worldwide, Daki-Biyu District, Kubwa Branch has urged Christians to be humble and peaceful in all their dealings.

Mrs Ogundipe, also a prophetess, gave the charge in a sermon to mark the Palm Sunday Service titled: “The King of Glory,” in Abuja.

Preaching from Psalm 24 and Matthew 21: 1 to 11, the clergywoman said the Palm Sunday, which signified the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, was done in humility and peace.

According to her, Jesus Christ came in a humble manner into Jerusalem, riding on a colt of a donkey.

“The triumphant entry was a demonstration of the nature of his kingdom.

“If Jesus Christ is worldly, he would have gone for the best and latest car in our contemporary world.

“The kind of Messiah the Jews expected was the one that would liberate them from the hands of the Romans, the powerful nation at the time.

“Jesus did not come with force to conquer the world; he did not conquer the nations, but our hearts and minds,” she said.
