Evangelist Mike Bamiloye, President of Mount Zion Film Productions International, responded to Super Falcons star Rasheedat Ajibade’s display of Jesus. Last week Thursday, the Falcons secured a 3-2 victory against Australia in their second Group B match during the FIFA Women’s World Cup co-hosted in Brisbane.
Ajibade played a crucial role in the match, contributing to the team’s success with her deflected shot that led to the first goal and equalizer by Uchenna Kalu in the final moments of the first half. The team also earned goals from Osinachi Ohale and Asisat Oshoala, securing maximum points.
After the victory, Ajibade celebrated by removing her jersey and donning a white armless shirt with the inscription: ‘I’m nothing without Jesus.’ Bamiloye, expressing his reaction in a Facebook post on Saturday, lauded the Nigerian forward’s gesture, interpreting it as a demonstration of being light and salt in her profession.
According to the drama evangelist, Ajibade’s action presented an opportunity to preach the gospel of Christ on the soccer field. He pointed out that many Christians prioritize their careers over Jesus, while others fail to promote Him due to fear.
“Preaching the Lord Jesus Christ on football field…This is an example of knowing you are a missionary in your professional career!” Bamiloye said.
“This is knowing that you are LIGHT and SALT in your profession.
“Many who are Light have put it under the bushel and refused to shine it before the world.
“Many have lifted their career and professions above the Lord Jesus Christ who saves them from the darkness of this world.
“Some, for the fear of this world, have refused to bring their Lord Jesus into the open.”
