BECOMING TRULY BORN AGAIN ISN'T JUST HAVING KNOWLEDGE OF THE BIBLE AND GOD

Jesus Did It!

By: Gideon Wambua

Growing up, I came to know God as reality ... but I had never thought of having a personal relationship with God. (There is a HUGE difference, I've come to realize).

Having been brought up in a Christian family, God was not far from me.  From the very beginning, attending church service was part of life (for Sunday was no Sunday if I didnít attend church service).  Many are the years I would register 52 week attendance at Sunday school.

Being young and growing up, I should say this equipped me with Christian knowledge.  I can still recall with nostalgia the Sunday school teacher talking about baby Jesus born in a manger, or Joseph being sold to Egypt where he was to help them in years to come; Moses and the burning bush and so on.  I should admit that these stories made sense then because they were well told and not for their underlying significance.  Nevertheless, they struck a cord in my life that is practically impossible to forget.  All these and other Christian teachings made me become a believer at a tender age.  I hasten to point out that all these did not make me passionate about Jesus; rather they made me knowledgeable about matters Christian - which is a far cry from being born again as spoken about in the third Chapter in the book of John.

As a family, we used to pray at meals, before we went to bed, and any other time my father deemed fit to thank the Lord.  My brother (2 years older than me) was already in the system, and whenever we went to bed he would close is eyes and say prayers again.  It follows that I had no choice but to start praying too. 

As I grew up, life started getting tough.  For instance, someone in the family would fall sick and being hopeless, I would turn to prayers.  On the other hand, I was scaling the education ladder and preparing and sitting for exams, and it presented an opportunity to pray and ask God to enable me to sail through.  I cannot recall whether I used to thank God after the exam or for the success I was enjoying in academic circles, but for sure God was answering my prayers.

The turning point in my life came in 1995, when I reflected on my past.  It became clear that God was in full control of my life.  It dawned on me that if it were not for God, my life would have taken a different direction.

By then I had graduated with a first class honors degree, but I had no job. It was after listening to a T.V. program, and hearing a testimony of a sister-in-Christ who was really enjoying Godís divine interventions in all circumstances, that I was jolted to reality and I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior - by Godís grace. This meant committing my life to God and letting Him run the show. 

It took this simple but very important step (accepting Jesus as my personal savior) to get a job, for I had a job in three days!  God gave me the strength to quit smoking (I had been struggling with this for years).  Surrendering all to Jesus is a lesson I have learned in my born again life. 

God is faithful and so real to me, and many are the wonders He has done in my life.  God has blessed me in far many ways than I can count.  I trust in Him to keep on protecting, guiding and providing for me.
