TEXT: JOHN 3:16-17
(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
KEY VERSE: 1TIMOTHY 1:15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
I am happy to be chosen by God to serve His purpose in this end time. I am happy also that God brought me from Sierra Leone to Nigeria to participate in this Conference. After this testimony, I believe God will show you those areas of your life that will require changes and adjustments. Before I start my testimony, I will first give you a brief history of my life before my encounter with Jesus Christ. From this you will know that no life is useless before God and that only God alone can make any life useful no matter how hopeless the person could be.
Before my marriage to Pastor Paul Rika, I was Linda Kumba Nguajah. A Christian although not born again. I read Accounting and Finance from College of Finance and Management, Sierra Leone. While in college, I was heading a sinful club and even formed one after leaving the college. I was made the head of the club because of my skill in masterminding anything sinful. I was skillful in dancing and also given to alcoholism and cigarette smoking. I had neither pity nor respect for born-again Christians and used to brand them with all sorts of names.
When I heard of Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide, I castigated it as a new way pastors have invented to exploit money from people and was critical against the ministry. I didn’t like pastors at all especially Pastor Paul Rika whom I saw as unnecessarily zealous on matters of holiness. I never liked anybody that looked holy; not knowing that it is the best way of life.
I was a committed member of the Rock Church in Sierra Leone. I thought God was too good and kind to condemn anyone to hell since He is full of love and mercy for humanity. We dressed without any caution from our pastors who themselves love our ungodly appearances. These pastors never taught the truth on Christian modesty in adornment. We never learned that using indecent dresses and trousers (pants) as women would land us in hell. We were not warned against ungodly hairdos like perming, jerry-curling of hair, attachments and weave-on. It is my encounter with Jesus that delivered me and granted me in-depth awareness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: He can also do for you what He did to me.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Do something new in my life…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Judges 3-5; Luke 7:31-50
