Gospel artiste, Wale Adenuga, has berated Christians who are quick to indicate they would do a job ”by the grace of God”.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, the singer described the act of Christians throwing in the ”Grace of God” whenever they are given a job as ”calling the name of God in vain”.
According to him, Christians should learn how to do the job they are given and leave the grace of God out of it.
His post reads
”This is not about those who swear and curse. That’s way too crass.
I’m talking about how we as Nigerians say we will deliver on a promise ‘by God’s grace’ and many never do. Everyone one calls on God’s grace in Nigeria – the military, the politicians and my mechanic.
Personally, when I give you a job to do, don’t tell me you will do it by God’s grace. I don’t want to hear that. Keep that between you and your God. My former parishioners will remember me telling them this while I was their pastor. Just do the job and save us the public prayer.
Here’s why: I’ve had transactions with Chinese and American people that I don’t know and haven’t met. They never told me they’d deliver on their promise by God’s grace. Yet they delivered. But we, we call on God’s grace and still sometimes disappear with the money or don’t deliver on time. This doesn’t mean there are no dubious foreigners nor trustworthy Nigerians. I’m just speaking to the preponderance of our inclination to always drag God into our incompetencies.
Don’t impress me about God by your words. Impress me about Him by your deeds and your ways.
