Quit Running Alone, Run With The Light!

By Okon Godswill

Once you ascertain it’s a torch all you look for is the switch…

Everything was created through him; nothing—not one thing!—came into being without him…absolutely everything…got started in him and finds its purpose in him. John 1:3, Colossians 1:16 MSG

If you read the first episode of this series you would have found out that you’re almost completely helpless if those who came to here before you tell you they do not know why you’re here on earth. Seriously, are they really clueless no matter the dressed-up stories.

They are not to blame for that anyway, it is obviously impossible to know the use of a thing if you do not know what that thing is in the first place. So the question is:

Who are you???
“Errrrh…ehmmm…my name is…”

No, not your name. Not your age. Not your sex. Not your societal status. Not your academic degrees…who are you before God? (Think this through before you continue please).

Man lost his identity and hence purpose, through the disobedience of the first man (Adam) after the fall in Genesis chapter three, but God in His depthless mercy and love found man through the obedience of the second Man (Jesus Christ, the Lord) (Romans 5:17–19). It is in this Person alone you can find your identity as a son of God!

If you receive Christ then you are given the power of sonship. (John 1:12).

If you’re a child of God then His Spirit lives in you (Romans 8:14). If you’re led by His Spirit then you are eligible to find and fulfil purpose.

A man receives Christ in his life through geniune repentance and confession by faith in Christ, very easy (Romans 10:9–10).

Come on! I’m surrounded by Christians…My parents are Christians, I go to church, and my pastor is obviously a Christian, they should know I’m a Christian as well, shouldn’t they?
No, they don’t my dear. You cannot claim your dad’s certificate of birth for any reason, can you?

Nobody can be saved or affirm your salvation on your behalf. We are all individuals who came into this world through different individuals and we answer our names individually. Not even your twin can receive Christ for you no matter how identical you two may be. Salvation is personal, not a group registration.

Have you ever confessed that Christ is your Lord and Savior? Have you ever repented of your sinful works and mindset? Do you believe in Jesus as the Lord and Christ?
If yes, wonderful! You’re saved! Please stand by and let’s save others.

If no, God have mercy! You need Him if you want to know your purpose. You need to be saved. There is no short cut to God, you will be cut short instead.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The Way to the Father (God), the Truth about who God is and who you are, and of course, the Eternal Life! (John 14:6, 3:16).

If you wish in your heart to receive Christ please say a simple prayer as this:

Christ Jesus, thank You for Your love for me. Thank you for calling me back to the Father. I am sorry for being away in sin and unbelief. I answer Your call today Jesus. I confess You as my Lord and Savior. I receive Your Spirit, the seal of sonship. I henceforth become a child of God, never to go back again. Thank you for answering me.

Wow! You’re saved! I’m super duper happy for you. Welcome to the Kingdom. Stay tuned for more of God through constant praying, studying the Bible, as well as joining a local church nearby.

Now that we are done with the birthing process, the naming is automatic. “No Longer a Slave” by Bethel Music simply chorused it as “…I’m no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God!”. That is who you are- a child of God.

Please do not take your sonship for granted. Many have done this and will regret it at Christ’s glorious coming.

Now that we have ascertained it’s a torch, let’s look for the switch please.

My next publication finally unveils the “why?” question- your purpose of existence. You can’t miss this part for anything. Wait for it!
