I was born into a christian home and grew up knowing there was a man named Jesus who died and God raised from he dead for the sins of the whole world. The problem was I never knew Him.
I always assumed I must be a Christian since we go to church and attend Sunday school classes. However one day in 1994 at the secondary school, I heard some "SU" scripture union group were holding a meeting at the school auditorium and were inviting boys and girls from the hostels around.
Considering that we were accommodated in boys only hostel,this was our opportunity to meet with girls from the neighboring girls only hostel as well as to make a mockery of the Preacher who apparently had curly hair( Jerry curls). We just never took him serious as he had lots of female friends which we considered "unholy".
Anyway , we got to the meeting and as the worship session started, something dramatic happened, all the windows of the auditorium flung open in an uncontrollable manner as a strong wind started blowing. Almost immediately the Altar Call was made and so many students busted into tongues and virtually all the girls we hoped to meet ran towards the altar with tears in their eyes weeping their way gloriously into Gods kingdom.
At this time the Pastor started describing how terrible it will be in Hell and that "today" may be the last day for you. Hearing this, I got scared and my friends were beginning to go out as well one after the other.
Finally I decided to go outside too as the wind forcefully opened up the buttons on my Muslim friends` shirt right beside me. I was so afraid that I had confessed Jesus as my lord and Savior before thinking about who was watching.
I equally received the Holy spirit that same time and started speaking in tongues after much hesitation and trying not to fall under the power of the anointing. After this period I was trying all I knew to stay holy,no lying,no stealing .
. etc until i heard the true message of love from Pastor Chris in 1998 at a Day of Bliss program in Lagos.
That was when I started living the true christian life and I have been burning and shinning since then till now. Glory to God!.
