True worship always comes from the heart and observes God's laws and begets good deeds says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He notes that evil thrives because our religiosity lacks depth.Without its divine anchor, it only manifests as mere externalism that produces little or nothing. Hence, he urges us to true worship based on love of God and of neighbour. He prays for an increase of grace in your life. Have a blessed and fulfilling new month. Shalom!
