Its was about 15 year ago, when i was 11 years old. Fortunately, both parent were all christians and thereby grew up in the church and going to church every sunday morning but i was not born again.
In August of 1997, as we were preparing for childrens week celeberations in the church, with lots of activities going on. One of the leaders came to me and asked a simple question.
She asked, DO YOU FEEL SHY? And because i didnt know what its meant to be shy at that time, i said YES And am soo glad i said yes to that question on that glorious day. She (The Leader in church) then took time and explained to me about the courage and boldness that the Holy Spirit brings to you when He steps into your life.
She then further asked me if i wanted to be bold and courageous. i answered yes and then she asked me to repeat those wonderful words after her.
Thats how i got born again 15 years ago and am now 26 years. When i got born again, i used 2 years to study the scriptures through and through and started preaching the year after that.
I have been preaching the gospel for 13 years now and i have read the scriptures 26 times. AM GLAD I GOT BORN AGAIN.
