Judas In The Church
Pastor Chris walked into the office and saw pastor King sitted writing on his note.
”Good morning pastor,” he greeted, good morning pastor , pastor king replied.
Pastor Chris: What is it that is so urgent that you called me to come immediately.
Pastor King: oh I’m so sorry about that. Even I don’t know yet. Brother Odogwu called me that he has something very urgent and important to discuss with us this morning. That was the reason I called you to come.
Pastor Chris: what could that be? He asked, dragging a chair and sitting beside him.
Pastor King: I really dont know.
Just then Mr Odogwu came in and took a seat and sat beside them shaking hands with them.
Odogwu: My pastors I greet you all in the name of the Lord. I am so sorry for keeping you waiting. I was held up on the road by traffic.
Pastor King: you are welcome sir. It’s okay.
Pastor Chris: it is alright sir, I even just gotten here. How is your wife and family?
Odogwu: oh the name of the Lord be praised, they are blessed sir.
Pastor King: Thank God for that sir. You said there was something very important you wanted to discuss with us. I hope there is no problem sir.
Odogwu: yes! (He said adjusting his seat) There is really no problem. I just want to tell you the message I got from the holy spirit and then seek your opinion on it.
Pastor King: Really? What could that be?
Odogwu: Well, the holy spirit has been talking to me in diverse ways for some time now and I have been ignoring and trying to run away just like Jonah, but the more I run away the more he keeps pulling me and now I have decided to let myself be available for HIS use.
Pastor Chris: Halleluyah! I’m glad to hear that you have made yourself available for God’s use. We can’t run away from HIM.
Pastor King: brother Odogwu, what is it that God wants you to do?
Odogwu: Thank you pastor. God has been telling me to come and serve in the outskirt of town. I didn’t understand what He meant by that but then He told me to come to you that he has given you the message also. He told me, he said. ”My son Odogwu, I want to use you to raise my people, I want you to be a shephard to my sheeps.”
” pastor, I have seen this in my dreams and even when sitting down it comes like a trance. I do not understand what is going on or what God meant by saying I should come to you that he has also given you the message. This is why I have left everything I have at work today to come and see you. The Lord’s work is more important.”
Pastor Chris turned and looked at pastor King before speaking.
Pastor King: Actually brother Odogwu, the Lord spoke to me. He told me to open a new branch at the outskirt of town. And just yesterday I was telling my partner here about it. We even deliberated on who would be the pastor of the new branch. I guess God has already chosen who he wants to head his church.
Pastor Chris: God is not an author of confusion. If he has chosen you then who are we to say otherwise.
Mr Odogwu: (acting surprised) you mean I will be the pastor of SALVATION GOSPEL MINISTRY? Pastor, no na, who am I, I can’t pastor a church na, maybe God wants me to serve in another way not pastor.
Pastor king: the message is clear enough brother Odogwu. God has called you and if you say you’ve made yourself available for him, then be available. Together we will start work immediately to set up the new branch.
He stretched his hand for a shake with Odogwu. ”Congratulations sir and welcome to the pastoral team” congrats sir, pastor Chris said, shaking hands with him.
