I gave my life to Christ at an early age but I lacked proper nurturing for growth until I graduated from Secondary School and during this period I experienced alot of challenges in my Christian walk that I wonder whether I was still in faith or had backslidden. The reason I say this is because I was a believer but I constantly see myself doing the wrong thing a true believer ought not to do.
And each time I discover myself doing these things I had profess I wouldn’t do,I will cry to God begging for forgiveness and will even promise myself not to do such things again,only to find myself doing even worse or more terrible thing than the ones I had done before . This tormented me for a while.
And because the desire to serve God in truth was still burning in my members, but I don’t know how to go about it, I wandered from one ministry to another searching for something to fill in the emptiness, ,that desire to serve God faithfully but to no avile. But some thing happened, a friend invited me to worship with him at Christ Embassy Church one Sunday and I decided to go with him.
I was going with hope to find in that place that thing I was searching for. when we got to the venue,I was observant and very careful about everything that was going on and also I tried to listen to what the man of God was saying.
I took note of the usher who welcomed me to my sit and the message that the man of God ministered ,the choir ministration, but just before the offering time, I realize something about what the Man of God preached and I fell in love with it. Throughout his ministration, he kept addressing my case.
He said God wanted me to come to him the way I was and should not try to make myself better to come to him. I was overwhelmed with such love that I could not help myself but shade tears.
when he finally made an altar call for those who need to give their life to Christ. I came out for the altar call and this time,it was going to be the last altar call I will answer concerning Salvation.
Because I found in this place that which I was looking for. And truly to day it has become a story of my salvation because, I came to God the way I was and He accepted me and has been making me what he wants me to be and that is what I am today.
I am living a life of glory and victory from one level to another, that is a higher life which is upward and forward always. Hallelujah .
