Society has come up with the term ‘CELEBRITY’ to refer to members of society who have become famous, popular and prominent. These include media personalities, actors, sport-persons, musicians etc. They are called celebrities because society acknowledges and appreciates their achievements. In the Christian community we also have our own celebrity preachers, prophets, apostles, musicians etc. These are strong competitors in terms of flashy, exuberant, flamboyant and affluent lifestyles. I take no offence in having some of our own people making it into the halls of fame. I am of the opinion that we should learn to appreciate and publicly celebrate each other. After all, we are all celebrities in our own way because someone out there celebrates us. The Church would be a better place to be if we celebrate the success of others among us rather than pull each other down. As reiterated earlier I am thankful to God for the Christian celebrities who have been raised by God to high levels of prominence because of the gospel. Its not a crime to be a celebrity. Its not a crime be rich and affluent. Its not a crime to be popular and famous. Its not a crime to become a success story. Its not a crime to be an achiever in life. Its not a crime to be a cut above the rest. Its not a crime to aspire greatness. You can still remain a sober and down to earth Christian even if you rise to levels of international prominence. A word of caution to all Christian celebrities is: Refuse to be possessed by the spirit of pride because pride comes before a fall (Proverbs 16:18). Do not put your head into the clouds because of your achievements. Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought…..(Romans 12:3)
