Bishop Oyedepo Warns Youth Who Want To Travel Out Of Nigeria Without A Defined Mission
Dr. David Oyedepo, the Chancellor, Landmark University, spoke at the 8th Convocation Ceremony of Landmark University. During his sermon, he revealed that a particular syndrome among the teeming youth is the craving to travel out of the country without a defined mission. You ask some of this youth, “you must travel, but to where?” You will be surprised to hear their answer. He said that it is not wise to travel out of Nigeria without any plans to do something reasonable.
“What a miserable way to live. Life without a mission is an adventure in frustration,” he said. According to him, traveling out of the country is not an achievement. That should record in anybody’s mind. It is not an achievement. There is nothing wrong with going out to study, but there is everything wrong with living one’s life to chance.
He said that many today are only hanging around where they are tolerated, leaving where they are celebrated. Leaving where their contribution will make the most meaning. “I thank God that I never missed my way to stay in America. I thank God that he directed my path back here. I thank God that I am seeing the fruits of my labour. I thank God that I am making my little impact, little contribution to my generation,” he said. Watch it, some may be marked out to be president of this great nation tomorrow and be jumping about, fast food restaurant jobs, sweeping, and all that.
The man of God revealed that where the problem is greatest is where contributors are most needed. We have great challenges and we need great contributors to turn our challenges into testimony. He said that calling you an American with Oyedepo as your name is a deception. There is no Oyedepo in their lineage. It doesn’t exist. “Nigeria needs you, our great Nation needs you. The continent needs you if you are willing to make your life count,” he said.
Finally, he advised them to go and study there and come back to make value in Nigeria. God forbid, there will be no war in Nigeria. If for any reason, if anything like that happens, I will be the last to leave here. I have made a vow to God. I owe my generation a responsibility.
