This post is part of a series of posts from our graduating third year students. Today’s post is from Emmanuel Mothae from South Africa. On 29 November 2014, he graduated with his Bachelor of Theology degree from African Christian College with a major in Ministry.
Every time I have to write something about African Christian College (ACC) I recall who I was five years ago.
I openly declared five years ago that I would never study anything that has to do with theology, not to mention being a preacher.
Not knowing that two years later I would be in a class working toward my first degree in theology. In a period of two years God had changed my life to the complete opposite of what I wanted to be in life.
Today I am proudly serving God in His Kingdom passionately with no regrets.
My love for the work of God grew within the three years I spent in ACC. Through continuous lectures at ACC I have come to realise that life is not only about me, in fact it was never about me. ACC has transformed my life from being a superman to the world to being a servant in the Kingdom of God.
I no longer live for myself but for Christ, putting Him first before everything, my neighbour after Him, then I am the least of all.
I know and believe that every graduate of ACC can acknowledge that ACC has transformed them in one way or the other. That’s what ACC specializes with, transformation of the heart.
Like others, when I came to ACC I thought I will be only studying the Bible. I was surprised that ACC is not just a Bible school, it is much more. The experience I gained at ACC is not only preaching, but I have also learnt to work with my hands. Again, ACC is not a just a Bible school, I am a witness of that.
I thank God for institutions such as ACC, Africans are being empowered to transform others and the continent as a whole.
