Bishop Oyedepo urges Christians to live sanctified lives

Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church Worldwide on Sunday urged Christians to live a sanctified life to experience God’s glory.
Oyedepo, the founder of LFC, also known as Winners’ Chapel, who presided at the five services, held at the Faith Tabernacle, Canaan Land in Ota, Ogun State, noted that only the sanctified are ordained to be glorified.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria that attended one of the services reports that Oyedepo urged Christians to be conscious of their ways of life so as not to miss their blessings.
He added: “Sanctification provides us access to specific blessings, answered prayers, fresh unction, divine health, supernatural breakthroughs, signs and wonders, grace and glory.
“All of these are why we should, constantly, be in a spiritual battle for sanctification and stay spiritually awake at all times.
“If we surrender to the spirit of slumber, we shall become vulnerable to all the forces of filthiness.”
Oyedepo said Christians should endeavour to work out their salvation with fear and trembling and ensure they win the war against sin.
He said: “Believers should, therefore, note that godliness is not a state of thinking that you have not sinned but the desperation to please God as a lifestyle.
“Godliness is a conscious acknowledgement of one’s sin and shortcomings, praying for forgiveness, cleansing and victory.
“It can also be a state of tireless press towards perfection.”
