Intellectuals need relay Real Foundation of Wisdom
Wisdom preserves and understanding uplifts; delightful is that one who has got both to live upright. The truth expressed in this statement leaves no doubts. This is the reason which motivated the community of ULK to gather in a conference on 18th June 2014 at the stadium on the campus to listen to Prof. Dr RWIGAMBA BALINDA unfolding the characteristics of a good Christian. The conference intended to bring intellectuals to discerning the fact that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge comes from him who made the foundation of the earth.
The conference was introduced with gospel songs and music as performed by Jehovah Jireh Choir with a calling message. The choir called the audience to dare approach Jesus, the cornerstone, to allow him in their lives since they would want nothing once Jesus takes lead in their life. Throughout the conference, the scriptures were read, the bread of life broken, questions answered to shed light on what makes a good Christian. The servant of God Prof. Dr RWIGAMBA BALINDA emphasized that none on earth can experience true joy if their life is not based on the trust in God.
Talking about the characteristics of a good Christian , in the light of Ephesians 4:5-6, 4 items of description were mentioned namely , holding true faith ; experiencing true baptism; being filled with the holly spirit; and trusting Jesus as his King and savior. The verse reads “one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. One Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all”
The Servant of God put to light that One Lord is Jesus the unique God and the only name given to men through which they can be saved. Jesus said I am even before Abraham was. The same Jesus is referred to as God the father in the old Testament but it is One Lord . Isaiah 9: 5 put it:” 6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” The preacher confirmed that in the bible, the attributes Son, Child, God, and Father are used to refer to one Lord- Jesus Christ. True baptism is therefore in the name of Jesus Christ and Faith in one Lord Jesus Christ the Savior of the Lord. The audience was called upon believing the truth of one lord, one baptism and one faith.
For a further study one can confront the message of the scriptures in the verses: Colossians 1:19-20, John 10:30, John 1: 1-3, Acts 4:12, Malachi 2: 10, revelation 4:11, Romans 6:3, Acts 11:2-6.
A good believer should take God at his word, follow God’s word. The Servant of God remarked. Meetings are open for everyone to attend every Thursday and Sunday from 2:00pm to 4:00pm and 9:00am to 12:00 respectively.
