The Joy of Begging to Belong to The Lord Jesus: A Testimony
There are four reasons why I have written this book.
Firstly, soon after the Holy Spirit came upon me in power on 24th October 1970, the Lord showed me a vision of the lost in hell. Later on, He showed me a vision of the saints in heaven.
Then He revealed to me how much He loved and loves me. This book is an attempt to respond to what He allowed me and is allowing me to see.
Secondly, the angel said to the wife of Manoah, the father of Samson,
“You will conceive and give birth to a son. No razor may be used on his head, because the boy is to be a Nazirite, set apart to God from birth, and he will begin the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Philistines” (Judges 13 : 5).
Manoah asked him,
“When your words are fulfilled, what is to be the rule for the boy’s life and work?” (Judges 13 : 12).
Enclosed here is the rule for my life and for my work as I have received it from the Lord and as I have worked it out with Him over the years. The Apostle Paul said,
“For this reason I am sending to you Timothy, my son whom I love, who is faithful in the Lord. He will remind you of ‘my way of life in Christ Jesus’, which agrees with what I teach everywhere in every church” (1Corinthians 4 : 17).
This book is a statement of my own ‘way of life in Christ Jesus’.
Thirdly, along the years, I have made vows to the Lord which have been included in this book. Having vowed to the Lord, I must keep my vows to Him (Ecclesiastes 5 : 4 – 6).
Fourthly, I have walked with the Lord Jesus for many years. He has blessed and satisfied me beyond measure. In response to His love, I give Him my spirit, my soul and my body with joy, and I have found it an undeserved privilege to serve Him. I beg to serve Him. I beg to give Him my all. I beg with joy for the undeserved privilege of knowing, loving and serving Him.
Glory be to His great Name!
