General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he was once a boxer.
The cleric disclosed this on Sunday while delivering his message ‘Meant for the top’, in the church’s monthly thanksgiving service.
The General Overseer advised the congregation to get closer to God and keep working hard to get to the top, adding that it takes a lot to become a champion, judging from his experience as a boxer.
“One of the things you learn as a boxer is that it takes a lot before you become a champion. The moment you become a champion, you discover that you have just started the work,” he said.
Adeboye added that after becoming a champion, the work was just starting, pointing out that there would be so many people who wanted to take the position away from the champion, hence, the need to work harder than even the challengers.
