TEXT: 2 Corinthians 4:1,2
1 Corinthians 4: 1 “Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of
Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.”
I became a member of Deeper Life Bible Church in 1983 when I was twenty-one years old having just completed my secondary education. I got restored to faith, having been born again sometimes in 1977.
In Deeper Life I learnt much about God and His holiness and got sanctified and baptized with the Holy Spirit. I was zealous and committed to God and to righteous living. I hungered and thirsted after God and His fullness and desire to serve Him in full time capacity, except for my academic pursuit.
For the period of twenty-six years I had the grace to serve the Lord from the lowest to the highest one under the leadership of the General Superintendent. I served as a House Leader, Zonal Leader, Location Pastor, District Coordinator, Campus General Coordinator, Regional Overseer, State Overseer and National Overseer.
My ministerial Service in Deeper Life was from 1983 to 2009. I served as a Pastor in five different states in Nigeria and one other Country besides Nigeria. In my twenty-six years of Christian Ministry within the Deeper Life, my conscience bears me witness I was righteous and holy both in life and ministry.
I was never at any time found in sin both in private and in secret. None of the members and workers of the churches I pastured, man or woman, for the twenty-six years in Deeper Life, can rightly accuse me of sin against God, in private or public. I worked among Pastors and overseers.
I speak with the same confidence that none of them can rightly say, “Pastor Paul Rika is not a minister of righteousness”. This is the lifestyle I continue in to this day of writing as one who has found favor to be the International Director of Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide after about nine years of leaving Deeper Life Bible Church by the will of God.
Now, I have brought all these to you to say, “I Pastor Paul Rika, have kept myself and family in God's love and purity, being confident in this that no man on earth can truly give account of sin and rebellion against God and against the Holy Scripture in my life. I am very confident that nobody anywhere can come fort and truly and say that Pastor Rika did evil or that I found him committing sin.
Thought for the day:
It pays to serve Jesus
Song for the day:
Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning
Bible reading for the day:
Isaiah 43-44; Colossians 2
