Scripture:- 2 Samuel 9:1-13
Topic:- Austin Jay Jay Okocha’s Lesson

When he received one of his awards recently, Okocha dedicated it to a certain … Victor Agbo.

Then said, “Yes I am a great footballer and all my success is due to my friend Victor’s good heart”

People looked at one another and said, “Who is this Mr. Agbo?”

Then Okocha went on, “We played together in a youth team.”

When Enugu Ranger’s recruiters came to observe us, they told us that the striker who scored the most goals will be recruited into the Sports Academy.

That day we won 3-0. I scored the first goal and then Victor scored the 2nd with the head. And then the 3rd goal was the one that impressed everyone.

Victor started from the wing, then found himself face to face with the keeper, dribbled the goalkeeper and all he had to do was to push the ball into the empty goal post.

In the meantime, I was running to his side and instead of shooting into the empty goal post, Victor decided to pass the ball to me and I scored.

This is how I found myself at the Enugu Rangers youth Team.

After the game, I went to him, and asked him, “Why did you do that?”

And he replied, “Because I know that you are better than I am and You will go far in life in this game, you needed that push.”

Curious to know more, the Journalists began to investigate and were able to meet this Victor Agbo to ask him if the story told by Okocha is true.

And he confirmed it, adding that his career as a footballer ended after that match as it was the only opportunity to become a Professional.

But I was sure Okocha would go far and do better. So I remained unemployed fulfilled and happy.

However, Journalists, observing his luxurious house and his fleet of cars parked in the garage asked Victor.

“But being unemployed how could you have such a house and cars and living so luxuriously?

You seem rather comfortable physically.

Victor’s answer, “All that? .. is Okocha.

Moral of this story:
How many of us have ever done something like Okocha and Victor?

On the contrary, many of us show the opposite of this story displaying selfishness and ingratitude.

Friends! Let’s help one another to succeed, don’t think blocking that intelligent, talented, and good fellow can add to your ordained destiny.

You can not go nor have beyond what God has destined for you.

Helping another person to succeed can only make your life better and above all guarantee a blissful hereafter for you.

Victor might not have made it big like Okocha, and Okocha might still have made it in another way but Victor wouldn’t have had access to such Luxury.

You see life! Open your heart and broaden your thinking.

Be an abundant mentality personality.  God will always be there at your own point of need too.

And when we help a person to succeed, the latter must never forget those who contributed to his success.

Whether they forget or not, God doesn’t abandon His own.

Above all, we should never forget that God is watching and He will judge us.

Life is all about Your CONTRIBUTION and never about your POSSESSION.

Success is not achieved all alone.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to help others for my success to being real henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Weekend!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
