The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has given reasons why he cancelled his church’s crossover service.
Delivering a sermon at his church’s first thanksgiving service of the year 2021 themed, ‘Divine Lifting’, Adeboye said he cancelled the church’s physical crossover service to teach a lesson in submission.
“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 you do it, even though you do not agree with him, it is called submission. Submission is when you obey even when you don’t agree.
“Some said by 10pm you should close. Another one said by 11pm you should close. I said, okay, let’s agree and close in our home. So, I said we’ll stay in our house and crossover at 12 midnight.”
