The Sunday service at the Aso Rock Chapel on Sunday, was marked with jubilations, special praises and thanksgiving to God in celebrating the return of President Muhammadu Buhari from medical vacation in London.
There was fanfare in Abuja and across the country when the president arrived in the country on Saturday.
At the State House Chapel in Abuja, the celebrations continued as the choir did a special ministration entitled, ‘All things are working for my good’ to praise God for healing the president.
The church faithful also sang of praises and offered prayers to God in different Nigerian languages.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife Oludoladapo were among the worshippers during the service.
The Aso Villa Chapel administrator, Isaac Ambi, who presided over the service, said the church was happy that the president returned safely to the country.
He said, “We want to rejoice with our father, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, for the safe return of our president and our father, Muhammadu Buhari. And we also want to thank God on how he has used you in piloting the affairs of Nigeria while the president was away.”
In his sermon, Ambi, using John 15:1-11 and Psalm 23, as anchor texts, urged everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour to continue to live life according to the dictate of the Lord.
Ambi said, “A Christian life is a matter of relationship; knowing the rules and the regulation. So what is your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ? We are supposed to have a kind of relationship that draws our strength from Jesus Christ.”
