His advice is for believers to make the world a better place by being agents of change.
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) offered this advice at the monthly thanksgiving and special prayer for mothers, intending mothers, single mothers, pregnant women, widows and their families at the RCCG Headquarters, Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta, Lagos.
While delivering his sermon titled: 'Joy of Many Generations', Vanguard reports that the popular cleric urged believers to take evangelism seriously.
In his words, "You have to be more aggressive in preaching the gospel to others and by doing this, you will be joy to many generations. You are not in the world by accident, God created you for a purpose and it will be dangerous if you die without fulfilling such purpose. Time is too short, do not die without fulfilling the purpose of God for your life. You are created to be joy to many generations."
Pastor Adeboye also advised Christians to be a source of blessings in their communities.
"It is a great thing that you are in a house, office or church and because of you, such places are blessed. There are some people if they traveled from their compound or office nobody will notice because they are not a blessing to their neighbors," he said.
He is the G.O (Worldwide) of RCCG and one of the most popular preachers in Nigeria.
Pastor Adeboye is married to Pastor (Mrs) Foluke Adeboye. Their union is blessed with four children (three sons and a daughter) and many grandchildren.
