Hardship: Bishop’s Wife Urges Nigerians To Work Hard, Trust God For Daily Bread



The Wife of the Bishop of Anglican Diocese of Nike, Mrs Nneka Onyia, has urged Nigerians to work hard in any endeavour they engage in and trust God for their daily bread.

Onyia gave the message of hope on Sunday evening after the 2022 Diocesan Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, which was themed: “Good Tiding of Great Joy”, held at St. Andrew Basilica, Hill-view Avenue, Trans-Ekulu, Enugu.

She advised Nigerians to wake in the morning and look up to God and then go out for their daily work or business, adding: “Before you know it at the end of the day, God in His love have provided a daily bread”.


The bishop’s wife said: “The Lord Almighty will not leave us unattended to. He is faithful even beyond providing daily need such as food to all families.

“He (God) that keeps Israel does not sleep or slumber. He is ever faithful when we trust on him and be diligent with that thing we do for a living.”

She, however, urged Nigerians especially Christians to spread love, peace, unity and oneness for the nation to easily surmount challenges of the time.

On the theme of the carol, the Chairman, Diocesan Musical Council, Dr Chiwuike Uba, said that the world knows nothing of genuine and lasting joy, because most people find joy only in the transient pleasures of sin.

According to Uba, let us, therefore, wean ourselves of every sinful act and use the season to exalt the incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is not merely the saviour who is Christ, but also the Lord, the Lord of all.

He said: “No Christian will ever know the fullness of joy unless such a Christian resolutely consecrates his/her life to the Lord.

“Your joy, however, as a Christian may be, will always be incomplete if you do not make Him the source of your life and the joy of your soul.

“You must have fellowship with Him more than anything else, and make Him your greatest desire at every moment. For Christ in you is the hope of glory. This good tiding must be received with faith for there to be great joy.”

In a brief homily, Ven. Emmanuel Uzuegbunam, cautioned Christians not to allow acts of violence and unrest in the county affected their cordial relationship with God.

“The real crisis will start if people cut-off their relationship with God, who is the author and source of life as well as decide to face issues of life on their own feeble will and power.

“So, everyone that wants to know and worship God in truth and spirit must be born again to receive a renewed spirit and soul that would ensure due fellowship with Lord Jesus Christ daily,” Uzuegbunam said.

On the benediction for the event, Archbishop Henry Ndukuba, the Primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, though a visual platform, prayed for God to restore peace in every part of Enugu State.

“I pray God in his divine strength and mercies to roll off all forms of violence in the state. I also pray you have a joyous and prosperous season as you celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ,” Ndukuba prayed.
