Luwalira as appealed to Christians to be active and make meaningful contribution
towards the development of the church.
The bishop explained that no one is called to be a
spectator in the church but instead everyone is called to be an active member
and to make a considerable contribution towards the development of the church.
“You cannot come there and start blaming everyone
because the church was not cleaned properly, who do you expect to clean it for
you? Why do sit back and blame the choir instead of joining them?” Bishop
The Prelate said that there is need for Christians to grow
together in faith and as a Church for development in order to pray together for
God’s guidance to plan how to live better livelihoods.
Bishop Luwalira made the remarks while presiding at
the confirmation of 150 Christians at St. Luke’s Church, Kazo in Nansana
Municipality, Wakiso District.
He appealed to the newly confirmed believers to
contribute towards the completion of the newly constructed church building to prove
that they are part of the church and calling by God.
Bishop Luwalira cautioned the believers against evil
deeds because everyone must be clean and free from sin as the world prepares
the Christmas festivities for the birth of Jesus.
“Because people are expecting, endeavor to be found in
peace without any blemish nor sin before God. Therefore brethren, since you are
waiting for this, be diligent to be found without spot or blemish but instead
be at peace,” he said.
The bishop explained that as people walk, they fall
and others stumble, they fail and others continue, others backslide but believers
must understand that "Jesus is the good shepherd who takes care, heals and feed us".
“We have a good shepherd -Jesus- above every situation
before us who can give us strength to do strong things and feed others,,” he said. “Check yourself and see if you are fit to stand before
God, look at the nature of our jobs and what you do. Desist from pride, hatred,
disagreement, impunity and other ill motives as we prepare for the coming of
the Lord, be responsible to avoid being charged.”
