Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. (Matthew 22:37, KJV)
Loving entails sacrifices, and this is true for Wilfred Rivera, a worker in the Members Church of God International (MCGI). It has been 20 years since he embraced a different path – to study the word of God and be a church worker in MCGI.
Wilfred does not regret his decision leaving a promising career had he graduated as an engineer. “I could say it was worth every sacrifice because I have witnessed God’s love. The blessings I received are worth more than anything – having God and Christ in my life made me complete.” He cites 1 Corinthians 12:31, “But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.”
Though he experienced many problems, struggles, and loneliness, he faced those with the love of God in his heart. “I realized that I love Him more than my personal goals, my loved ones or even myself. I love God more than everything else in my life.”
