Personal profile for user screen name: Aixen7z4My name is Nobel Kam Aixen and I do not like talking about myself. Someone has written a short biography of me on our website at hishows.org. It describes the ministry that I do at His Hows and Ministries. I have given my testimony at hishows.aimoo.com and I would like to copy and paste it here in case anyone would like to know where I am "coming from" when I participate in this forum.
I wonder why folks are hesitant to share their testimonies of salvation. Perhaps we should have made it a requirement for membership in this forum. Yes, even unbelievers could be asked to state where they are in their spiritual journeys. But why have I neglected to share my own?
One of my earliest memories is of a feeling of estrangement from God. A three-year-old does not ask, "Who am I?" perhaps, but he is able to long for God. I did. Yet I did not get to know him till I was sixteen.
It was not because of a lack of Bible knowledge. My father was a teacher and a preacher and a leader in the church. I grew up in Sunday school, so to speak. And yet, like Samuel, I did not know the Lord. I wondered at it, why the words of Scripture were so sweet, but had no personal meaning. I believed all I read, all I was taught. Yet I had not learned to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
That was the message God knew I needed to hear and at the right time he brought it to me. The evangelist said just that, that there is a great difference between knowing about God and knowing God, and immediately I knew he was correct. I talked to God that night and he got to know me and I got to know him. That night I found a friend, O, such a friend. I found out that he'd loved me all along. He drew me with the cords of love, and thus he bound me to him. And round my heart still closely twine those ties which naught can sever. For I am his, and he is mine, forever, and forever.
It was hard to imagine then how much I had to learn, because my heart seemed full at that time, full and overflowing. But I have learned to articulate what happened then, that I had taken the steps of repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. I have learned to say what I really believed then, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, and that he rose again, according to the Scriptures. I have learned so many things that I now realize how little I know. But I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed to him.
The thing that I learned almost right away is the thing I am still learning. Though it is my life verse I am still learning what it means. We have to live for him. For the love of Christ constrains us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
