I am Ellis Eben-Baffour from Ghana. I am a young man driven with passion and belief that everyone has to hear the Good news of Jesus. I met Melissa through my best friend a couple of years ago. Although we had not yet met in-person, for some reason our spirits connected and it appeared as if we have known each other over a long period. We finally met personally in January 2019, and as the Queen of Sheba addressed King Solomon, “Indeed, not even half was told me”. I realized she was much more beautiful, wonderful, kind hearted and more amazing than I ever expected. It was a very nice moment to spend about a week with her during her visit to Ghana! God bless you Melissa, a true representation of a Christian.
A Christian first of all is anyone who believes in Jesus, and has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and savior of their souls.
“But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12
A Christian is therefore a child of God and has his or her home in Heaven. A Christian strives to live like Christ, think like Christ and talk like Christ. The believers were first called Christians in Acts 11, because the people saw them do things only Jesus did or would have done. Jesus Christ gives us Hope.
“….Christ in you the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27
The message of Jesus is what has kept me moving and to continue to do what I do. Believing in Jesus gives me so much assurance in my heart that it literally affects my entire being and perspective in life.
Many times we face hurdles and we consider them as ‘impossible to cross barriers’ but the Word of God comes to ignite the hope we have in Christ, and assures us that everything is going to be alright.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
I want to assure you today that you do not have to only look on your present circumstances, because God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Do not throw in the towel. You might not be perfect today, but there is hope for you. Our main aim is to be like Christ!
“Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13).
