A Message of Hope
FROM THE ADMINISTRATOR’S DESK
Corporate Social Responsibility has come to stay in the Redeemed Christian Church of God. The ministry our Lord Jesus came to establish on earth is evident in all activities embedded in the CSR initiative – Luke 19:10, Matthew 25:34-40 with emphasis on verse 40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it to me.” In the story of the rich young man in Matthew 19:16-21, all the scripture was emphasizing is the ministry to the less privileged. Our Lord Jesus Christ pointed out emphatically in verse 21 that the key to a perfect and balanced, Christ-like life is giving.
The Ray of Hope magazine from the stable of our Mother in Israel and the R.C.C.G Habitation of Hope intends to give insights to her activities in the area of corporate social responsibility. This particular initiative as envisioned by her through the Holy Spirit ministers to boys found on the streets, Orphans and the less privileged in our nation.
Corporate Social Responsibility effort from various parishes in the Redeemed Christian church of God, State Government and private individuals to the Habitation of Hope ministry has been commendable and encouraging but there is still so much ground to cover in order to lift the hands of our Mother in Israel in helping to salvage, transform and empower the boys in the home; and yet, there are more in the streets.
We cannot afford to leave the destinies of these children in the hands of radical revolutionists who propagate violence and use these children to carry out their wicked and desperate acts e.g (Boko Haram, ISIS). If we do not minister the gospel of salvation from our Lord Jesus Christ to them, be sure the devil will minister his own and thus the battle for the future of our nation and the continuity of the vision and dreams God has given us will be in jeopardy.
The time to act is now, the Nigeria of the next thirty (30) years will be shaped into what the heart and thought pattern of the average ten (10) year old is, but unfortunately a large percentage of them are being raised on the street due to the current economic situation.
You can come to minister to these children in our home or better still, join any church or organization that is championing the cause of rescuing street children and less privileged people.
Remember whatever you have done to these ones is being done to our Master and lord Jesus Christ – Matthew 24:40
