I got born again in my fourth year in the university. I’ did always heard people preach, but I never quite got taken in .
However, sometime during my fourth year at school, God began dealing with my heart on the need to get saved. I started honoring invitation to fellowships and outreach meetings.
I remember very well that at every such meeting where there was an altar call, I would go out to be saved. However within me, I still did not have a perfect assurance of salvation.
I knew that I was still holding back some what and had not totally yielded my heart to God. But God had begun to touch me and I was no longer aloof to the gospel.
One day, however something happened that made me yield my heart totally. I remember that day very well and afterwards I was never the same again.
That day, very early in the morning, about 5am, I was awakened by the voice of one brother who was doing “morning cry “ which means “early morning preaching”. All I heard that day was “my brother , hell is real” I’d heard that before of cause.
But that day, I heard it differently. I was bothered.
I said to myself if you die now and go to hell, would you say you were not warned? I was not sure that morning that I would make heaven if I died and I didn’t like that I realized that I needed to release my heart fully and willing to God as that was the only way I could be sure of my salvation. I do not remember whether I was still lying down or if I got gown on my knees but I made a very firm decision at that moment and that was my turning point.
I said in my heart “ from today, I no longer care whatever anybody would say or think of me; I no longer care what I will lose or miss, today I give my heart totally and unreservedly to Jesus Christ”. And that was that.
From then on I no longer needed follow up like in the past. I remember that shortly after that, in fact that same week, I was preaching in buses.
At the fellowship I attended on campus, when they asked for when they could come and visit me, I said it was not necessary I asked, instead, that they should tell me when they planned to go and visit others so I could join them. From that day till date, it has been forward ever.
Jesus loves me. .
