For several weeks, SCOAN evangelists have been taking the Sunday sermons at the Ikotun-Egbe-based church in Lagos.
Among the evangelists who were given the pulpit to preach were Jemila, Annette, Joseph, Chisom, and James.
Evelyn titled her sermon ‘The Good and Foolish People’ and read Proverbs 14:7-9. She also read Psalm 38:4-5, a passage about David’s constant penitence and remorse.
“Perfection belongs to God,” Evelyn said, regarding God’s positive assessment of David despite his mistakes.
The clergywoman further told the congregation, “Ask God to reveal Himself to you, then when you pray your prayer becomes answered prayer. Before you pray, first watch to know where you have missed the mark, then your prayer becomes answered. Good people know that sin is their actual enemy; they don’t go about justifying their wrong actions.”
Evelyn also read Psalm 14:1 while speaking on the characteristics of foolish people. She said: “Many people today do not see sin as their actual enemy. Stay away from fools so that you don’t become what they are. Fools are not concerned about whether or not they sin. They never look inward to discover where they have missed the mark.”
Evelyn rounded off by saying: “A good man does not wait to see the result of his sin, wrongdoing before he repents. Foolish people keep blaming others for their problems; they never have self-reflection.”
