Points For The Debate
Good evening, Panel of Judges; TeamCFAP and our amiable guest Judges, Good evening to the Co-debaters and Good evening to all members of the CFAP group.
My name is Akindele ABAYOMI EMMANUEL. THE 4th SPEAKER representing CFAP Brothers Forum. Am here to Support the motion which says; “To go far in life you have to walk alone”
Let me start by saying that we all know that the bible is a perfect example for every one, especially for those who really seek the truth…..firstly I’ll start with Enoch as an example from the bible. This man walked with God and was not, for God took him Genesis 5:24; and while it is not stated in so many words, a fair inference is that Enoch walked a path quite apart from his contemporaries.
Secondly, Another lonely man was Noah who, of all the antediluvian, found grace in the sight of God; and every shred of evidence points to the lonesomeness of his life even while surrounded by his people.
Again, Abraham had Sarah and Lot, as well as many servants and herdsmen, but who can read his story and the apostolic comment upon it without sensing instantly that he was a man “whose soul was alike a star and dwelt apart”? As far as we know not one word did God ever speak to him in the company of men. Face down he communed with his God, and the innate dignity of the man forbade that he assume this posture in the presence of others. How sweet and solemn was the scene that night of the sacrifice when he saw the lamps of fire moving between the pieces of offering. There, alone with a horror of great darkness upon him, he heard the voice of God and knew that he was a man marked for divine favor.Genesis 22:11-13
Moses also was a man apart. While yet attached to the court of Pharaoh he took long walks alone, and during one of these walks while far removed from the crowds he saw an Egyptian and a Hebrew fighting and came to the rescue of his countryman. After the resultant break with Egypt he dwelt in almost complete seclusion in the desert. There, while he watched his sheep alone, the wonder of the burning bush appeared to him, and later on the peak of Sinai he crouched alone to gaze in fascinated awe at the presence,partly hidden,partly disclosed within the clouds and fire.exodus 24:2
Most revealing of all is the sight of that One of whom Moses and all the prophets did write,(our lord Jesus Christ) treading His lonely way to the cross. His deep loneliness was unrelieved by the presence of the multitudes.
‘in the garden of Gethsemane
The suffering Savior prays alone
The Savior wrestles alone with fears;Mathew 26:36
He died alone in the darkness hidden from the sight of mortal man and no one saw Him when He arose triumphantly and walked out of the tomb..
The truth, however, is that an astounding number of people in this world hate being alone.
But we have to open our minds to the empowering nature of being alone. And one thing I can confidently say is that, if Jesus can bear the greatest burden alone and triumph….that alone should be enough reason to convince us that to go far in life, we have to walk alone.thanks
