Nollywood actress turned-Evangelist, Eucharia Anunobi who was recently in Dakar, Senegal for a seven-day crusade, has explained why she’s no longer seen at social functions, saying, “ I have moved from the things that don’t matter to the things that matter more, which is doing the work of my Father who created me and made me an instant star.”
The star of ‘Glamour Girls”, gave this explanation while responding to a question posed to her by a concerned woman on her Facebook page.
In her words, “A woman saw me recently and asked with excitement, Eucharia, why have you not been seen much lately on the pages of newspapers, magazines, events and so on?
I actually thought about the best way to handle the question so as not to sound proud or immodest, and these were my honest answers.”
“Ma’am, thanks for looking out for me, but let me state categorically, that I, Eucharia Anunobi, now Evangelist, have moved from the things that don’t matter to the things that matter more, which is the work of my Father who created me and made me an instant star when I least expected it in my life.
“I would never want to be remembered as someone who graced all the front pages of all the newspapers and news magazines in the world and did not contribute to the leading of people towards heaven. Of a truth, you will agree with me that the job that will be rewarded by God Himself is that of soul-winning.
“So, why waste my fame, money, life, face, time, speaking ability to do the things that will never be rewarded? I would never wish to be remembered as one lady who covered or graced all the front-pages or a fashion star, or a fashion icon, or one with the best gown at the red carpet event, designed and clothed by the best hands in the world, with the best hair-style or make-up.”
“Surely, these things are good and beautiful, but they will never earn anyone a single mark before the presence of God. The content of my character and my contributions to humanity through the preaching of God’s Word (for which I was originally created for) are what I wish to speak for me when my accounts and records are opened in heaven.”
“And I would love to hear that sweet word from the throne of grace saying, welcome my faithful servant, enter into the rest prepared for you. Then, my joy will be full while others continue to relish the pleasures of this world. “
