Osinbajo Preaches Mercy, Grace For Nigeria In Christmas Day Message

The celebration of Christmas reminds us of the grace of God, and the birth of Jesus Christ is the beginning of a new covenant of God’s mercy, according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.

Prof. Osinbajo stated this today when journalists accosted him for a chat after the Christmas Service at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja. The Vice President had delivered the sermon at a hybrid service attended by his wife, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, senior government officials and others – both online and physically.

The VP, also a Pastor, told State House Correspondents that his message to Nigeria is “the message of Christmas which is the birth of the new covenant, the birth of grace. God’s grace and mercy are what we celebrate today.”

Continuing, Prof Osinbajo stated that “the birth of Jesus Christ is the birth of the grace of God. From the moment Christ was born, God said He wouldn’t hold us to account for sin as long as we believed in what He did – the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

“Before, we had to pay for our sins, and we had to bear the consequence of sin. We would always continue to sin, but with the coming of the Lord Jesus, He has come to replace us and substitute all our unrighteousness and replace it with His righteousness, as long as we believe in him.”

Earlier in his sermon during the Church service, Prof. Osinbajo noted the difference between the old covenant which was based on the performance and fulfillment of the law of sin and death and the new covenant, which is based on the grace of God through the end of Jesus.

Citing the scriptures in Luke 2:4-17, the VP noted that “the birth of Jesus brought about the new covenant because mankind couldn’t fulfill the old covenant and fell short every time.

“God knew the old covenant didn’t work and then introduced the new covenant in the form of Jesus who came to fulfil the law.” The Vice President added that “what is required for the new covenant is that we believe in Jesus
