Rwandan Man's Confession


By Dr. Bob Moorehead

In 1980 a young man from Rwanda was forced by his tribe to either renounce Christ or face certain death. He refused to renounce Christ, and he was killed on the spot. The night before he had written the following commitment which was found in his room:

“I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed, the die has been cast, I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made - I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, worldly talking, cheap giving & dwarfed goals.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I won’t give up, shut up, let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up for the cause of Jesus Christ.

I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till everyone knows, work till He stops me & when He comes for His own, He will have no trouble recognizing me because my banner will have been clear.”

 

 


A Call To Action

 

2 Chronicles 7:14

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

”Please note that last part”;   “I Will Heal Their Land”.

There is so much darkness in this world. Every day people are walking blindly into a lost and Christless eternity. The question is; what am I, and what can you do about it. Do we even care? This verse above is our call to action and holiness. It is our call to be a light in dark places, and for many of us in the church today, to stop playing games, to get on our knees and seek the face of God, to repent and turn 180 degrees away from sin and addictive behavior that has stolen our hearts and minds, and to raise a holy standard for the King of Kings.

The question on all of our hearts should be; What can I do today, and every day, to reach one life for Christ? This verse is a personal challenge to me. I pray it is a challenge to you too.

Be blessed, Steve
