he Rt Revd Joseph Olusola, the Bishop of the Diocese of Ijesha North East (Anglican Communion) preached with passion in the opening service of the 1st Session of the 6th Synod at Archbishop Vining Memorial Church Cathedral, Ikeja, Lagos on the theme of the Synod, Looking unto Jesus.
In his sermon, he defined faith as the international currency to connect to the spiritual realms. And that this faith is required to actually look unto Jesus Christ as the Author and Finisher of our faith.
He also spoke extensively on the subject of looking. He said to look up to Jesus, we need a divine touch because our eyes could lie and deceive us if we did not look in the perspective of God. He also said we could only live well when we see well because our limit depends on our sight and not the sky.
He further alleged that our eyes are the target of the devil and that they could affect our hearts and that as long as we are blind, the pillar of satan are saved.
He then challenged the Church look unto Jesus Christ if our eyes are to be opened. He concluded by asking if the Church is actually expecting the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
