First love renewed

"Taking part in the 21 Days Fast of Daniel awakened my faith and restored my first love for God. I became familiar with everything that was done in the church and that weakened my spiritual life.

I soon stopped doing the things that gave me fulfilment such as winning souls and attending services during the week. I hardly read my Bible nor spent time meditating on the word of God. I took part in the 21 Days Fast of Daniel, every year throughout the five years I had been in the church, but I never committed to the end. As a result, I grew cold spiritually.

In 2017, I took a decision to develop my spirituality. I committed to the 21 Days Fast of Daniel. I became faithful to God and denied my flesh of entertainment. Before the first week ended, I developed the compassion to save the lost souls.

To avoid watching television, I went out for evangelical programmes of the church. I also went from door to door inviting my neighbours to attend the services. I attended services during the week where I sought the Holy Spirit.

Finishing the fast was not easy and that was when I realised that it was the Holy Spirit who gave me the strength to complete the fast. On the last day of the fast my first love was restored; I was filled with joy and peace inside. Seeing my disciples attending the services gives me fulfilment. There is no greater love than that of God," said Vusi.
