Director of resource centre, Dimapur, Rev. Dr. Coppe Mero Sunday admonished believers to be on guard in their life journey, at the same time cautioned that Satan was all out to destroy and kill spiritually.
Rev. Dr. Coppe Mero said this in his homily during the 25th anniversary celebration of 7th NAP Unit Baptist Church at Bhandari on the theme ‘Christ our protector.’
Stating that God has a wonderful plan for the people, he cautioned one would never be able to fulfil His plan unless one is free from the bandage of sin and to acknowledge one’s sins and believe in Jesus to break away from the bondage of Satan.
Exhorting the gathering, parliamentary secretary of irrigation and flood control, Y Patton also made a fervent call to ‘forgive and forget’ the past misdeeds and start afresh for a peaceful co-existence.
Recalling his long political association with the people of Bhandari, Y Patton sought forgiveness for unintentional mistakes, if any, committed in the past.
While inviting assistance from 7th NAP at Bhandari, he also sought prayer support from the community for good health and wisdom upon the personnel to lead the people with justice for the all round development of the people.
Also exhorting the congregation, additional director general of police, T. Lotha called upon each one to shoulder responsibility for a harmonious coexistence.
Stating that laws quoted in the Bible were in congruent with Indian Penal Code (IPC) and vested on police personnel for enforcing law, Lotha called upon the uniformed personnel to deliver justice before God and man.
He appreciated 7th NAP for maintaining a clean record since its inception. Representatives from various unit churches were present in the celebration.
