The month of May is said to be the month of grace. It is the month following immediately after Easter; when we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ; which brought about our reconciliation and restoration to God our Father. So as we move into the new month, let me reiterate the need for us to come to our Saviour and renew our commitment to Him. This is the only requirement for us to live a fruitful life. Therefore as we proceed in this year of New Beginnings, let us continue to strive towards fruitfulness by living a righteous and sin free life.
