Am Pastor Benny Agbo My both parents do not attend church at that time, but once in a while l attend church. After my secondary school, l got an admission to study Electrical Electronic Enginerring; from there on it was other life, though l could remember l still love God.
As at this time l don’t know what it is to be born again. l had friends that would not even think of going to church but only party ,their influence was just too much, it was always parties and we had less time to study.
There was something inside me that always tells me this is not my life’s and l always watch Pastor Chris on TV. l love his teaching so much, his look so encourage me and how he carry himself so organized, and one day l looked for Christ Embassy Church close to me.
I started attending service, i was welcome first time specially and l love to always come back for more of the word. l could remember sometimes been alone in my room meditating on what kind of life i have lived.
l had a bible that l always read but l don’t have any understand of what l was reading then, there was such an hungry inside me to know God more and when my friends kicks at my door l quickly hide the bible so they don’t know what l was doing. But all the while l knew l needed something more better, even though l don’t lack anything at that time, thanks be to God at this time l was already born again, and l had some brothers and sister calling me on phone following me up and praying for me, l was not always round, this time l had little knowledge of God’s word.
On one of my visit to Lagos Nigeria to stay with a friend at lkeja (G. R.
A) l would still remember vividly, l was so tired of everything and l prayed one simple prayer that has change my life forever, now it seems simple but then it was so powerful and meaningful to me, because l prayed it with all of my heart. l said father, though l still don’t KNOW or UNDERSTAND much about God yet, even though l was born again and still believe whenever l do something wrong l need to be born again, again, l don’t know what it was to be righteous, nevertheless l prayed, God please help me this is not the kind of life l want to live, l want to serve you and be committed to your work, Lord help me.
And some day later my friend introduce me to a Cell, which help my growth, this time l made up my mind not to miss any church meetings which l kept, and l meant other young people there and so committed l was fully convict that l was in the right place l watch them especially the sisters and l said if this once can be faithful to God, l can be faithful as well and they encourage my growth. I want to say a big thank you to my Father, Thank you so much Sir, my Father, Teacher, Mentor, Life coach, A Man sent from God to me and this world, My Father Pastor Chris.
