Seek Godswill In Marriage - Cleric

I t was a joyous moment for former Miss Enobong Etim Okon and Mr Nsikan Obot Akpan as they walked down the isle to tie the nuptial knot. The colourful event which took place at St Peter's Apostolic Church, No. 5 Ituen Street, Ikot Ekpene, was witnessed by relations, friends and colleagues of the couple. In his message, Apostle Affah admonished the faithful to yield to instructions wherever they are asked to do, illustrating that the wedding garment represents repentance, that they are expected to repent when they are in church and become born again. Affah, harped on the theme Unlucky Guest and took his text from Mathew 22:8-14. He explained that before a wedding takes place, there will be arrangement for wedding garment and other necessary items for the wedding to be successful. His words: "The king went in to look at the guests and saw a man who was not wearing wedding clothes and ordered his servants to tie him up and throw him outside in the dark. The unlucky guest was thrown outside because he failed to yield to the instruction that anyone that wants to attend the wedding must put on the wedding garment which was provided. The cleric maintained that everyone was unrighteous before joining the church, pointing out that the church comprises good and bad people, and that if the bad people refuse to allow the message of Christ to have effect in their lives, they as well will be counted among the unlucky guests. "God has given an open invitation to everyone, if you are here in this church  today, therefore it is an opportunity for you to repent. Everything is provided for you, which is the message of the blood of Jesus Christ, he advised. The servant of God urged believers to seek God's will in marriage by yielding to right instructions instead of going by the mentality of men that marriage is a contract and advised the groom, Nsikan Akpan, who was elevated from a Deacon to a minister, to be steadfast in serving God so as to have a happy family. High point of the ceremony was the exchange of marital vows and ring, as well as signing and presentation of the marriage certificate. At the reception which took place at Ikot Ekpene Council Hall, the chairman on the occasion, Elder Oku, urged the couple to love and submit themselves to one another in humbleness of heart. His words: "Marriage needs humbleness and submission, I urge you, Mrs Enobong and Minister Nsikan, don't discuss anything concerning you and your wife to your family members and friends to avoid problem; Enobong, take Nsikan as a baby, Nsikan, take care of Enobong. I pray God to bless and make your marriage fruitful. Minister and Mrs Obot Akpan expressed their gratitude to God for making their day beautiful and thanked all those that contributed to the success of their marriage.
