Clergyman and fiancé of popular gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo, Pastor Blessed, has reacted to an old video of him describing the singer as his sister.
It would be recalled that after the duo announced their engagement last Thursday, June 23, Nigerians dug up an old video of him stating that Mercy was like a sister to him.
Shortly after the announcement, the old video of the clergyman hailing Mercy’s unique talents, resiliency, and hard work during a sermon surfaced and, in no time, went viral, with many suggesting that this was the genesis of their love story.
Well, reacting to the viral clip while preaching in his church on Sunday, Pastor Blessed thanked those he referred to as’ special online inlaws’ who have been following them since the news of their engagement.
He went on to urge single men to be renewed in their minds, so that they may be able to discern and know when “a sister has turned to a wife.”
In his words,
“They dug up my old message where I said she is like a sister. Am I not a brother? She is my sister. When it is time to get married, look among the sisters and pick Who do you want to pick before? When Mary Magdalene came to hug Jesus, he said ‘Wait, I am going to meet my father and your father’. It has turned to brotherhood and sisterhood. The kingdom is one family.
People are carnally minded. We have too many Christians that are not believers. We have unbelieving Christians. Be renewed in your mind that you may be able to discern and know when your sister has turned to wife”.
