Nigeria news : Pastor Adeboye reveals why he cancelled Crossover Service

nigeria news pastor adeboye reveals why he cancelled crossover service

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has admitted he canceled last year’s crossover service to teach his congregation a lesson on submission.

Through the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, the Federal Government had imposed a 12 am to 4 am curfew as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus.

As a result, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) directed churches to close their crossover service before 11 pm.

The directive meant that the crossover services, which customarily begin a few hours before 12am and end some minutes past 12am of January 1st, did not hold as usual.

Delivering a sermon at his church’s first thanksgiving service of the year 2021, Adeboye said: “I know some of you have been asking me ‘Daddy, why did you cancel the crossover service? We were getting ready to come to the camp to sing and dance and jump’. I will tell you why.

“Reason number one, I saw the opportunity to teach you another lesson on submission. When you obey in agreement with what your boss says, that is called cooperation. When your boss asks you to do something and do it, it is called submission even though you disagree with him. Submission is when you obey, even when you disagree.

“Some said by 10 pm you should close. Another one said by 11 pm, you should close. I said, okay, let’s agree and close in our home. So, I said we’d stay in our house and crossover at 12 midnight.”

Commending the government, Adeboye said they “are doing an excellent job, they are trying their best. When you ask a man to do a job only God can do, don’t blame him for making mistakes. They are trying and doing their very best, humanly speaking, to protect us.”
