Rebirth

Posted on: April 1, 2007

Today is the 1st of April. Universally known as April’s Fool Day. This is my 18th April’s Fool Day and April’s Fool Day 2007 has just become a very special day for me. This day, I accepted Christ.

I know this sounds ridiculous, incredible, unbelievable and whatsoever to people who know me especially close friends. Gone are the days when I hate Evangelists who try to force Christianity on me. I am gradually understanding their kind intentions and thank them for their invitations.

Let me clarify, this is not an April’s Fool joke. I am telling the utmost truth that I accepted Christ on this day. 1st April 2007.

Previously, I was given 2 chances to seek the Kingdom of God. A close buddy, Hui Jin, invited me to Church of Singapore Bukit Timah when I was 17. Perhaps it wasn’t my time, I couldn’t accept Christ instead had a bad impression of Modern Christianity.

A second chance came when I was 18. Yan Ling, a KSS junior, invited me to Faith Community Baptist Church. With that bad impression stuck in mind, I rejected her invitation and even challenged her Christianity knowledge.

Recently, my third chance came. Faith Community Baptist Church appeared in my Life again. I got to know Jasmine from my Pearl River Delta study trip. Through religion discussions, Denise, Jasmine and I got to know each other better. Understanding my religious stance, Jasmine thought it would be a miracle if I come to know God…

Indeed, a miracle happened…

I was such a dweller. I used to associate myself with Buddhism but I did not commit myself. I was not able to progress spiritually and character-wise. When Jasmine told me about FCBC, I saw it as a chance and took it. I had to do something. I needed some form of commitment in order to better myself, my life…

I guess the time is ripe, now and here. I asked Jasmine to bring me to FCBC today and I accepted Christ into my Life. I am grateful that I was given so many chances. God is sure forgiving. I was rebellious but he did not gave me up. I thank Jesus who died for us and our sins so we can be reunited with our Lord.

Today, I experience rebirth! Today, I will make changes to my life. Today, I will better my character. Today, I build Christ-ness. Today, I come home.

This week’s Lord’s Supper Service. Pastor Melvyn Mak preached about Reaping What We Sowed. I managed to meet up my Father Dennis and cell and shared about being street smart with reference to 1 Samuel 21.
