By Sampson Enyongekere
It was praise, thanksgiving and worship galore at the premises of Jubilee Syringe Manufacturing Company, Awa, Onna LGA Area of Akwa Ibom State, as the management, staff and the entire Onna people, Thursday, February 15, gathered in awe and reverence to thank and dedicate the company to God Almighty for His faithfulness and grace.
The thanksgiving and dedication service which was conducted by the United Evangelical Church (Founded as Qua Iboe Church), Awa, was presided over by a team of officiating ministers amongst whom were; Rev. Umoh Umoh, Rev. Udeme Akpan and Rev. Samuel Essien.
Preaching on the theme, “A whole-hearted worship unto God”, Rev. Umoh Umoh who drew his text from Micah 6:1-8, stressed the sovereignty, supremacy, Immortality and Lordship of God.
Rev Umoh said everything on earth was the handiwork of God and that the universe belonged to Him. He maintained that all on earth was temporary except God and God alone.
The clergy man revealed that from Bible times, God had always demanded a whole-hearted sacrifice and worship to be given to Him and nothing less. He harped on the fact that God was a quality conscious God hence, deserved a whole-hearted worship and praise. “A whole-hearted worship is one that recognizes the Lordship and Supremacy of God. This is the kind of worship He expects from us.”
When we begin to count His blessings, all we have to do is but worship Him”. The Rev Umoh who reflected on how the dream of building the Jubilee Syringe Company has crystallized into a reality enjoined the people to thank God effusively, as it was by His mercies since no one prevails by strength. “It happened because the Lord wanted it to be. So, worshipping Him must be with dedication and commitment”.
He said the management of the company was not like the Israelites who refused to thank God for His faithfulness, and prayed God to receive the gratitude shown by the company, saying it is a step in the right direction.
The Akwa Ibom State governor, Deacon Udom Emmanuel, who was represented by the special assistant on religious matters, Rev. Daniel Akwatang, urged the management of the company to sustain the exercise and watch God grow the company by leaps and bounds. He emphasized the need for continuity in praise, thanksgiving and worship and said it was the only way to sustain God’s blessing.
The offering session of the service led by the managing director of the firm, Mr. Zubevir Gulabi, had a cluster of employees dancing and singing in gratitude to God for His kindness. Two popular hymns, “Amazing Grace” and “To God be the Glory” and other Soul lifting choruses was sang.
Earlier, in his welcome address, the Managing Director of the company, Mr Zubeyir Gulabi, who was visibly elated with the service, stated that the thanksgiving was imperative when he considered the love and the faithfulness God has shown to him and his team over the years.
He maintained that without God it would have been impossible to establish the Jubilee Syringe Manufacturing Company and expressed optimism that God would not let them down.
Gulabi expressed appreciation for the church, the host community and the traditional rulers for coming out in large number to grace the event.
