My Calling to Impart
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established. (Romans 1:11)
So, affectionately longing for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us. (1 Thessalonians 2:8)
I believe that one of the greatest challenges in the Body of Christ today is for mature believers to learn to, and to be willing to, impart the gifts, knowledge and power they have gained.
Each of us must be open to giving as well as receiving whatever God desires.
I became a born-again believer in Jesus Christ in 1986 in Kampala, Uganda, after a divine encounter with the Holy Spirit. Since that experience, my life has been marked by a singular vision for advancing God’s Kingdom, and that vision is the main reason for the writing of this text: it is my desire to impart to you what God has given me.
God has blessed me with the opportunity to participate in and coordinate a variety of ministry programs designed to spread the Gospel to the nations. Although my team and I have ministered in over 20 countries in Africa, Europe and North America, as I was born and raised in Africa, I have maintained a special place in my heart and my ministry for that continent. Consequently, I was blessed to be part of an incredible revival that recently took place in Uganda – I will describe that experience more fully in a later chapter.
Used By God
…he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)
After having spent 19 years in full-time ministry as a pastor, evangelist, conference speaker, counselor, motivational speaker, church planter, educator and humanitarian, I can say without reservation that the power of God is amazing! I have seen and experienced signs, wonders and miracles beyond my wildest imaginings. I have seen the Gospel spreading like wildfire across nations. I have experienced God’s healing power in my own body.
My greatest desire is to see believers everywhere empowered to do the works God has set before them. I have set that opportunity before you now. Use this text as your starting point. Develop a radical prayer life. Set yourself apart for God’s use. Begin now to cultivate a heart and lifestyle of extravagant devotion, in order that His will may be accomplished through you!
