The Beauty of Light-Pastor Adeboye
Though he was rascally, his mother was a Christian. She brought him to the church at Ebutte Metta where God eventually changed him to a vessel of honour.
Today, Kunle Ajayi is a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God where he does not only lead the choir but always play saxophone to usher in the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye to the pulpit.
In the chapter five of his “Let There Be Light” series at the special Holy Ghost Congress on Friday, Adeboye explained how God had used him and his wife, Pastor Folu Adeboye to convert the rascally Ajayi to become a vessel for God.
Speaking on the “Beauty of Light”, Adeboye said that Ajayi was handed over to one of the church’s members who was a soldier and guitarist so that he could be tutored and become a responsible person.
But fate smiled at Ajayi when Pastor Adeboye and his wife travelled to Kenya. “My wife saw a flute and bought it for the rascally boy to use back in Nigeria. “He had been learning how to play guitar from the soldier man,” the pastor said.
Ajayi has travelled round the world with Adeboye, playing saxophone. He is a household name in RCCG.
At the tail end of his teaching, which he titled, ‘The Beauty of Light” Adeboye explained that a pure Light has the capacity to reveal the hidden treasure in any living being.
Using the theory of light as explained in Physics Science, Adeboye whom himself is an Applied Mathematicians (PhD), noted that Pure light is white in colour; like the light coming from a welder’s soldering.
He stated, “If you pass pure light through a glass prism, it breaks up into seven colours of the rainbow; Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.
Speaking from intellectual perspective, Adeboye said that each colour stands for something significant and that he would still speak on this on day.
As he put it, “All colours are the same when there is no light; no colour can be seen other than black. It takes light to bring out beauty and there is beauty in every person. 2 Corinthians 4:7. Inside you, there is treasure and until the light shines on you, your beauty will remain hidden.
Quoting the book of Psalm, the general overseer of RCCG explained how King David grew from being an ordinary singer and instrumentalist to become a player for King Saul and later the King in Israel.
“David was a great musician but he was only singing to animals until light came into his household and his beauty came out. 1 Samuel 16:11-End.
Light shone and the ordinary beautiful girl became the beautiful Queen in Esther 2:8-17
