20 Questions with Emeka O.

God doesn’t love the way man does. Often times, man’s love is conditional, fleeting, circumstantial, the list goes on. However, agape LOVE as Pastor Emeka noted is selfless. It is absolutely and undoubtedly unconditional. Thanks Pastor Emeka for letting us in through your lens.

  1. I love God because He first loved me. And He has shown me the excellence of His grace.
  1. Favorite encounter with God. The experience of salvation… and the realization that I have a relationship with a God I do not see with physical eyes.

  1. I would rather/prefer – sing praise songs; fast; sing worship songs; pray; all of the above? Umm… prefer is a strong word for me. I do find myself singing a lot, however.
