THE CELEBRANT

In North American English, a Celebrant is one who celebrates something.๐Ÿ˜

We have a Celebration around the corner and a very big Celebrity is coming to town…๐Ÿ’ƒ

A celebrity with the biggest fan base in the world is coming to town! Not Cardi B, not Beyonce, not Messi, not the Pope, not the Kardashians! Someone even greater! Take a wild guess….

It’s Jesus!

Oyigi yigi! Okiki Eledumare, Oba awon Oba, Alapa nla, Oluwa awon Oluwa, Mimo ninu awon orun, Eru jejeje leti Okun pupa, Agbo maa ti, Awuwo maa segbe, Gbingbinniki, Aja l’Orun, Kiniun t’ongbe Kiniun Aye mi, Atofarati bi Oke, Olorun Alaaye, Oba mi Ajakari aye ti n woleku tinpinletinpinle, Oranmo nise fayati, Olorun ton gbani, Olorun ton lani, Olorun ton yoni, Ekun oko Pharaoh, the Almighty One, the Lily of the Valley, the Ancient of Days, the I am that I am, the Ancient of Days, the Rose of Sharon, the Captain of my Salvation

We celebrate you Jesus!

So Oluwa ni Oruko, maa s’Olorun lenu

What name do you call Jesus? Well, start preparing your customized plaques because he is coming at Christmas!

So, how do we prepare for the Celebrity with the largest fan base in the world, bigger than the Beyhive, Bardi Gang, Ceec Spartans, Toyin and Tacha Titans,Savage Soldiers,Simi Army,etc

So, How are we preparing to host this big celebrity?

First, we got to know the taste of this big celebrity.

  • What does he like?
  • What are his favorite colours?
  • What kind of things make him tick?
  • What kind of things tick him up off and set him up for a good mood?
  • What uniform will he be expecting from his Fans?
  • How will he be able to tell his loyal fans from those who are not?
  • What kind of reception will he like?

It’s as simple as this;

Eni ti o ba ni owo mimo ati aya funfun

Psalm 24:4

‘What does Christ want?’
Christ wants to save us, right? So, what are the things to consider to ensure that we get saved? “Iwo gbodo ni owo mimo ati aya funfun” – You must have clean hands and a Pure heart๐Ÿค”

So, basically,  to have Jesus as our guest at Christmas, we need to follow these 2 criteria.


‘How am I preparing towards having clean hands and a Pure heart?’
These are the Uniforms we must put on to welcome this Celebrity guest.


1. I have to repent- to take away from my life everything that I know will be displeasing to Jesus
2. I need to move from there to ‘accepting Jesus’ that is; to allow him influence me, to do the things I know Jesus would love.

For, it is not sufficient not to hurt Jesus’ feelings, I must ‘consciously move from not hurting Jesus’ feelings’, to actually ‘making Jesus feel good’, to get his insignia/tattoo/badge on me.


So, what are the works of Jesus that can prepare me towards having clean hands and aPure heart?3ยณ

  • He healed the sick,
  • raised the dead,
  • informed the ignorant,
  • set free the captives,
  • fed the hungry,
  • he forgave sins and set free…

So, in which of these apostolates of Jesus am I currently functioning? In which of these apostolates do I need to work better?

CONCLUSION


When I am able to work on all of these, I will be one step closer towards a grandeur reception of Jesus๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป


Oya, I wish you a wonderful Christmas Celebration
