Engaging the Ministry of Teaching Priests for Light – Bishop David Abioye


Light is life; it is the beginning of all creation.

Access to light determines the quality of life.

The duty of a priest is two-fold: to pray, representing the people before God and representing God to the people.

Teaching priests are agents of enlightenment and illumination.

Without teachers, believers will remain in captivity.

It is in the light of our teachers that we see light. – Ps. 36:9

The more the intensity of the light from a teacher, the greater the liberation those under them enjoy.
