Here is the transcript:
Praise the lord. Moses here from Christian Motivation; I hope you are doing fine. I just want to give you a brief bio about myself. I think it’s very important that you get to know about me. I don’t want you to be listening to me but have no idea who I am. First and foremost I thank you for taking the opportunity to listen to this podcast, and I’m hoping that you did subscribe to it. So if you’re listening to this podcast from somewhere else other than iTunes, I encourage you to go to iTunes. If you type in my name, Moses Kangave, or you just type in Christian Motivation you should be able to see the podcast and then you can subscribe to it. I really encourage you to subscribe to the podcast because I intend to give you things that are going to help you to reign in life.
So to begin from, as I said, my name is Moses Kangave, I live here in the US, when people read my name they usually pronounce it say “Kangev” and I’m so used to it that that now when somebody asks me “Kangev”, is that right?” I just answer yes, but in case you want to know the correct pronunciation of my name, it’s Kangave. It really doesn’t matter to me how you pronounce it, all that matters to me is that we get to know each other, but Moses Kangave is my name.
If you go to ChristianMotivation.com and you click on the ‘About Me’ page, I have also written answers to very simple questions, just general basic simple questions where you can get to know about me. So if you just want to read about me you can go out there and just read about me. But I thought I would also do an audio where I just talk to you about who I am.
As I said, I am in theUSright now; I live inCalifornia, specifically I live inMorenovalley. I am originally fromUganda. I like to joke that I’m fromUgandainTexas. It’s because most people – some people have not heard ofUganda, butUgandais a small country in eastAfrica. And for those that have heard aboutUgandausually when I tell them I’m fromUgandathe first thing they want to ask me about is Idi Amin. Idi Amin passed away a long time ago but Idi Amin was the president that kind of “putUgandaon the map”. So it’s like most people know aboutUgandabecause of Idi Amin.
And I was talking to a friend a few days ago and he was telling me there is a documentary about Kony that has come out recently, he told me it’s on YouTube, it’s a well done documentary; I personally haven’t yet seen it. I plan on watching it so I can get to know what it’s about, but actually it’s about the invisible children ofUganda.
There’s this guy, he’s a rebel in northern Uganda called Kony, so he comes in from Sudan, comes in then kills people, abducts kids, kills kids and then he runs back to Sudan, something like that. So my understanding is some people have done a documentary about it and somehow it has got media attention. So probably the next time people ask me aboutUgandathey’ll be asking me about Kony instead of Idi Amin. But I just want you to know thatUgandais not just about people that are killing people, but we have really good men and women of God and the Word of God is really alive and working inUganda.
I gave my life to Jesus Christ in 1996, which means that I’ve been a Christian for more than 10 years. So, actually I was saved for more than 15 years, I really have enjoyed my walk with Jesus Christ, it’s been a walk where I have learned a lot of things, and that’s mostly what I want to talk about when it comes to Christian Motivation.
I came to theUSin December of 2000, so I’ve been here for more than 10 years. I love it here, I enjoy it here. I miss home; I call this home, I callUgandahome too. And just to let you know, in 2007 – as I said I’ve been a Christian since 1996, and I love The Lord, I was on fire for God, I really would spend lots of time in prayer and what have you.
But in 2007 I started hearing about the word of grace and faith and God’s love in a way that I have never heard it before or I had never really taken time to sit down and study it in the Word of God. So things started to change for me and I started looking at God differently than I had done before. You see, before that I would do things and almost thing that whatever I do I’m scoring points before God. So I’d do things kind of to prove myself to God, or I’d do things to kind of get favor with God.
So most of my worth before 2007 was more based on my works and my efforts, and then all of a sudden I started learning about God’s grace, about God’s love, and what really faith means and how to rest in the finished work of The Lord Jesus Christ, and my life started to take on a different transformation, the words started transforming me, and in 2008 through 2010 I attended Spirit Life Bible Institute where I was again just amassing myself with the Word of God.
And it’s when I started learning about these things that I thought to myself there are many people out there, there are money people who either know God, or people who don’t know God, who really do not understand who God is. They really do not understand God’s love. They don’t understand the finished work of Jesus Christ. They don’t understand what grace is all about. They don’t understand who we are in Jesus Christ. And I just realized that I have to start letting people know about God, and letting people know about God’s love, God’s grace, and what it means to reign in life.
So that’s why I really started Christian Motivation, that’s why I’m starting this podcast, because I want to share with you the things that I have learned and the things that I continue to learn. I want to provide you with resources that will hopefully help direct you in the right direction so that you can have an intimate relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ and with our Father and with The Holy Spirit. So that’s what I want to do.
In this brief audio I cannot really tell you my testimony of how I came to give my life to Jesus Christ, but I believe that’s one of the things that I will probably do sometime later on where I will just make an audio, or let me say a podcast where I will just share with you how I gave my life to Jesus Christ, and I hope that it will be a blessing to someone either who’s looking for answers, who hasn’t yet give in their life to Jesus Christ. Or it may even be a blessing to those that have really given their lives to Jesus Christ. But I just want you to know how I came to the lord Jesus Christ.
So I just wanted to make this quick podcast just to share with you a little bit about myself so that you get to know about me. Again, as I said, on the website if you click on the ‘About Me’ page you can still read a few things about me, and as we get to know each other, as I get to talk about you, you will probably get to know me more and more. Sometimes I will want to know someone the very first time we meet them, which is almost impossible, but as we continue to communicate, as you continue to listen to me, as I continue to listen from you, I’m hoping that you will take time to leave comments for me, to leave questions – just take time to communicate with me, I don’t want this to be a one-way street.
I want to build a relationship with you, my listeners, with you who are reading the things that I’m putting out there, who are listening to the things that I’m putting out there, I want to really build a relationship with you. And the way that I can do that is if you take the time to communicate back, take the time to leave me a comment, take the time to tell me how the things that I’m sharing with you are helping you, take the time to just say hi at the website or at the Facebook page, or anywhere that I am. I just want us to all be involved.
I believe that as I bless you, you too will bless maybe, because we are met to be a blessing to one another. The Bible says that “Iron sharpens iron.” I’m looking forward to just enjoying this journey together with you as we help together and as we grow together as a family remember, you are my brother, you are my sister, so it’s very important that we get to know more about each other.
Again, Moses here from Christian Motivation, I encourage you to leave me some feedback so I can know the things that are happening in your life. I want to know what you think about the podcast and the other things that I’m doing out there. I just want really to know more about you. I encourage you to let others know about the podcast, let them know about the Facebook page, let them know about the website and any resource that is really benefitting you.
Share it with others, when you go to the website and you see those icons that I have there where you can share on Google, you can share on Facebook, you can like it, you can tweet it, take advantage of all those things that I’m putting out there to help you share the message with somebody else. Again, remember that we are meant to reign in life. So as you go out there I pray that you will stay blessed, I pray that you will keep the faith and that you will reign in life.
It’s Moses here from Christian Motivation saying God bless you. Bye-bye.
