“Turn To The LORD And Be Saved!”(Is.45:22-25).
The Rev Dr Dah titled his autobiography “Glimpses.” Indeed the stories of our lives can only be glimpses because it is difficult to tell the full story of a person’s life.
I told you the other day that a greater part of what we call Scriptures are the biographies and autobiographies of people, but bequeathed to us as legacies that helps to solidify our own faith. They also serve as yardsticks, and examples which we can emulate to tell our own stories so that those who may think they are useless now should know that they are actually being prepared to be instruments of God’s amazing grace.
I recall that in one of my messages to my present congregation I told them how in my youthful naivety I stumbled on a Rosicrucian advert. I applied according to the prescription in the advert. (At that time I was operating my carpentry workshop in Mutengene). I took the letter to the Post Office in Tiko. At the counter I bought the stamp and affixed it to the letter. When I handed the letter to the postman, he looked at the address, then looked at me in the face and said, “Young man, what do you do for a living?” I told him I was a carpenter. He threw the letter at me and told me to go and continue with my carpentry work. He saved me from becoming a Rosicrucian.
I sit on the stool of Fochang as Fochang IV. My father who was Fochang III told me that their father told them that his fatner told them that “any child who goes after witchcraft, socery, the occult (in short, any man made god), will never find it good in life.
Little known as the Fochangs may be, they have created a great impact by spreading the gospel of Christ to the world.
The paternal grandmother of the Rev. Foncham Patrick was the daughter of Fochang II; my father’s uncle. The wife of Rev Montoh Simon Voma is the daughter of the elder brother of Rev Foncham Patrick’s father. Rev Oliver Langmia’s father is the junior brother of Rev. Foncham Patrick’s father. The Rev Sigalla Tandangu is my nephew; my eldest sister’s son.
I am grand Pa and great grand Pa (I have told them to call me Doh, not frand Pa because…) because I am Fochang IV. Many of the Fochang’s descendants have been Elders, and are Elders and Deacons etc.
This testimony is to let you know that we are all important and exceptional to God. He has placed us here for a purpose. He knew us before we were formed in our mothers’ wombs. I was baptized in December 1986 and I entered the Seminary in 1988. God is not a respecter of persons.
God is for all of us; he is not just for some of us. He is a universal God. All he expects from any of us anywhere in the world is to repent, believe in his son and be saved.
So he says,“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God and there is no other…”
Yes, turn to him from anywhere and from anything you have been and he will make you what he wants you to become!
Prayer of the week: Thank you LORD for the free offer of salvation to any of us who turn to you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
Welcome back to a new working day and week! Peace be with you!
Rev Babila Fochang.
