|Reverend LC Muzembi|
I was educated in this way under Andrew Wutawunashe, at whose feet I learned to follow our God very carefully. Since then I’ve been zealous towards God, as Paul says, just as everyone is trying to do.
It’s a journey to know God; how do you find it yourself?
As for me it came to pass, that, one day, I also saw this light. When the true light of God shines upon your darkness, you go blind on other things. Paul said, "I could not see for the glory of that light" Acts 22:11. He aborted his mission to persecute the believers.
The prophet Isaiah said, "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined" Isaiah 9:2.
This light should shine on you too my friend, it should shine up on your darkness, to make you see properly, and know, that you serve God as you should.
Paul says, "brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified" Acts 20:32.
Now, I help new believers and those growing in the Lord to believe God through this grace. And the word of his grace, releases in you faith which causes you to obtain. It picks you out among many, it makes you render service according to God’s own will and ways, not your ways. He’s not God if we tell him what to do.
Knowing this is important, it builds you up, it makes you receive an inheritance among those sanctified.
I said I testify to all, two things;
- "repentance towards God, and
- faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ" Acts 20:21.
Faith in Christ is it which guides us, it justifies us before God, that we’re walking aright, and after this way, we worship God, and have hope towards God, the hope of resurrection, even the promise of eternal life.
We follow Christ; he’s the way to come to the father, we’ve access by him. Our Christian ethical behaviours are measured by him, he’s the standard bearer. We measure ourselves with him, and our standards shouldn’t be lower, but greater, he said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father" John 14:12.
He went on, and while there, he poured upon us the precious gift of the Holy Ghost, who we now work with. We are not alone in this business.
Ananias, said to Saul, "Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour [he said] I looked up upon him. And he said,
The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard" Acts 22:12-15.
Com’on my friend, receive your sight, receive the Holy Spirit also. The glory of that light shown on you so that you should operate in his will; a sign that he has chosen you, to know his will, that you see the Just One, and be his witness, of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come.
