It was June 2011 when I posted this on my blog. Reading back, I could still feel the intense emotion and gratitude that I felt from this event. A.V.P.I is not just an ordinary Bible School for me. It was the event that was used by God to wake me up from the reality of my spiritual life. I have been saved long before this but the growth in my Christian life had been so slow and almost stagnant.
For me, it’s a wake-up call. I venture to so many things but the one matters most was almost completely taken for granted. Thankfully, my God is still merciful and He has never forgotten me.
God moves in many different ways. He uses circumstances for us to know He exist. Sometimes I tend to over analyze situations when things go differently from what I expected. Some people would react differently from what the said norm is. And portion of them would ask why did God allow things to happen to good people?
God has a purpose to each and everyone who lives in this world.
One of His great purpose is to save people from their sins. That was why He manifested in the flesh to taste death & sufferings at the Cross just to obey the will of His Father. He offered Himself as a Holy Lamb without blemish, He was spotless – for a perfect atonement for all our sins. He was not willing that any should perish (II Pet. 3:9)! OH HOW GREAT THE LOVE OF GOD IS!
