The greatest commandments of all are to love God and love others. We encourage Christians, especially leaders, to obey what Jesus told us to do. All Christians love to speak and sing about Jesus but we may not follow his instructions. Jesus taught his followers to do what he did. He commanded them to love one another as he loved us. He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God, to heal the sick and to cast out unclean spirits. I hope this book will help you do what Jesus told us to do.
Jesus said that all the commandments could be summed up in two: loving God and loving others. And the second is like it:. Jesus described our neighbour as anyone, especially those in need.

He said that we would keep his commandments because we loved him. Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. John God our loving Father expects us to believe in Jesus, his Son, to trust him and to obey his teaching and instructions.
And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment 1 John Jesus told a parable about two sons whose father told them to work in his vineyard Matthew One son said he would go but he did not. The other son said he would not go but changed his mind and went.
The story shows how we can repent, change our mind and obey. Often we may feel guilty that we are not obeying Jesus fully and wholeheartedly.

When we pray we may remember how we disobeyed or were half-hearted or reluctant to obey. We can repent, and obey. Some of Jesus commands seem hard for us to obey: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you; whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me; carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; sell your possessions, and give alms; those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples Luke ; ; ; ; We may live it out in different ways in different places, but his commands will always guide us as we are led by his Spirit.
We love Him because he first loved us 1 John Great Commission Mission. Teaching Them to Obey in Love.

Evening devotions not all students came, actually a rather small group. I too needed some inner encouragement to go as it was more comfortable near the fire. We sang a few quiet worship songs. Samson, a fellow who by accident became one of our students last year, well, this Samson was leading the devotions. We had sung the last song and were waiting for him to start.
Starting he did, but in an unusual way. He cried, trembled all over! When I looked up again I saw the head prefect flat on the floor under his desk. I was praying in tongues off and on.
It became quite noisy. Students were shouting! Should I stop it? It went on and on, with students praying and laughing and crying not quite following our planned programme! We finally stood around the table, about twelve of us, holding hands. Some were absolutely like drunk, staggering and laughing!
I heard a few students starting off in tongues and I praised the Lord. The rain had stopped, not so the noise. So more and more people came in and watched! Not much sleeping that night! They talked and talked!

And that was not the end. Of course the school has changed completely. Lessons were always great, I thought, but have become greater still. Full of joy most of the time, but also with a tremendous burden. A burden to witness. What were the highlights of ? No doubt the actual outpouring of the Holy Spirit must come first. It happened on August 4 when the Spirit fell on a group of students and staff, with individuals receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit on several occasions later on in the year.
The school has never been the same again. Whenever they had a chance many of our students were in the villages with studies and to lead Sunday services. Prayer life deepened, and during worship services we really felt ourselves to be on holy ground. We have been almost left speechless by what God is doing now through our students. We realize that we have been led on and are now on the threshold of a revival.
A young student, David, in his early twenties from the Markham Valley had a growing burden for his area of Ragizaria and Waritzian which was known and feared as the centre of pagan occult practices.get link

He prayed earnestly. As part of an outreach team he visited nearby villages and then went to his own people. He was concerned about the low spiritual life of the church. He spent a couple of days alone praying for them. He was invited to lead the village devotions on the Saturday night at Ragizaria.
Johan van Bruggen told the story in his circulars:. Since most of the Ragizaria people are deeply involved in witchcraft practices, David made an urgent appeal for repentance. Two men responded and came forward. David put his hands on them and wanted to pray, when suddenly these two men fell to the ground.
They were both praising the Lord.

Everybody was surprised and did not know what to think of this. David himself had been slain in the Spirit at Kambaidam in August , but this was the first time that this had happened to others through him. The next morning during the Sunday service scores of people were slain in the Spirit. They were drunk in the Spirit and many could not keep standing. The floor was covered with bodies.
David reported that there was a sense of tremendous joy in the church and people were praising the Lord. Well, the service lasted for hours and hours. And they want the students to come with Bible studies. Can we go next weekend? God used the students and Bubo in a mighty way.
