Former football hooligan testimony – Inspire September 2011 – Renton Baker

A former football hooligan explains his amazing change of heart.  By Sandie Shirley

Renton Baker led a double life. A loving, protective father and husband, he also terrorised opposing soccer fans on the terraces. That was until he faced a dramatic challenge at a church funeral: unless his heart was softened, he was on a collision course with hell. From then on there was a new quest to find real peace. Within days Renton bared his soul to a church minister. “I talked to him for four hours about everything I had ever done; as I spoke I felt clean.” That first encounter with God began a life-changing experience that has taken him across the globe to share his faith. “I learnt that my acts of violence were cowardly and love was the way forward – and the real tough guys were those who stood up for their belief and love for Jesus Christ,” says Renton.

His life spiralled out of control when his father, an ex-boxer and soldier, died when he was just 14. It made him bitter and angry. “Once I beat up a cousin when he told me he had a great day fishing with his dad.” Despite the violence as a football hooligan, using baseball bats, knuckle-dusters and ammonia to temporarily blind his victims, he would be concerned for his mother’s welfare as a widow. At 20 Renton was married, and within four years he was the father of three sons. His violence outside the home escalated, causing mental and physical harm to many of his victims.

It reached a crisis point when he planned to kill a man for landing his son in hospital. “It was frightening looking back,” he says. “I felt calm and in control as I planned to ambush him with the help of a friend.” He was saved from murder when his friend led his intended victim to a way of escape. It began a new way of thinking for Renton: “For the first time, something was telling me that I did not want to be angry any more.”

The turning point came at the funeral of his wife’s grandfather, a former church minister. His wife, Wendy, had turned back to God six months previously and was praying for Renton’s heart to change. “I walked into the church feeling naked and exposed as everyone knew about the things I had done.n“Listening to the minister’s words, I heard about this tough man for Jesus who had known God for 72 years. There was a personal challenge when the minister continued: ‘If you cannot be affected by this man’s life you must be so cold and hard-hearted, that you might as well walk into hell now.’”

Renton began a life-changing path, but a year later his youngest son asked him to help retrieve £2,000 inheritance money that he had lent to a cocaine addict.  For a brief moment Renton’s rage spilled. The police were already at the scene when he was armed with a knife to fight for his son’s rights. Renton was charged with the attempted murder of a policeman and his intended victim. “The charges were built up on some very dangerous and false statements and they were eventually dropped to lesser charges at the beginning of my crown court trial,” recalls Renton.

Disappointment at his failure became a divine re-appointment. Sitting in a prison cell immediately after the event, he promised God he would never do anything like it again. During the court case the judge ordered a two-year suspended prison sentence rather than send him to jail. “God intervened. I witnessed the power of answered prayer. I should never have had bail, let alone be given my freedom. “God is good all the time – full of grace and mercy. Nothing we can do will stop God loving us,” says Renton whose friend committed his life to God three days after the astonishing court ruling.

Today, Renton is a man with a huge heart for God. Building site colleagues refer to him as “the bishop” as he unashamedly shares his faith story. He also takes the platform for his Saviour at prisons, school and men’s meetings across the UK and travels all over the world as an evangelist for Avanti Ministries and Tough Talk.

“This may be my story but it is Jesus’ testimony of grace.”

THE POCKET WATCH

13 Jul

Bentley_Breitling_Pocket_watch-thumb-550x444

This is a pocket watch. It consists of an outside case and face and hands, with inside wheels and a mainspring. This watch is just like you. For you have a body, and you have a soul and spirit. The case and face and hands of the watch would be dead and useless, without the main spring and works within. So the body without the soul and spirit is dead. Yet it is the hands and face that tell what is working within. So we, in our bodies, our mouths, our hands, our feet, our words and works and ways tell what is the condition of our souls within.

The MAINSPRING is the life power of the whole watch. Without it, nothing would move. So life, spiritual life, eternal life, which comes into the inner man by a new birth is what we all need. “You must be born again.” (JOHN 3:7).

Then the inner parts of the pocket watch, the WHEELS, must be kept clean and free from dust. All watches are clean when new, but when in use, they are prone to contract small particles, which cause them to go slow and finally stop. There are little sins that get into young lives, once clean, and when retained and indulged, they do a great mischief.

Untruthfulness is one, dishonesty is another, exaggeration a third. When these accumulate, the inner parts need to be cleaned. (Psalm 119 verse 9) tells us how.

The FACE and HANDS of the pocket watch give the result of the inward condition. What you look at, say,and do, where you go, with whom you keep company, all indicate where the heart is, and what the mind is occupied with. This watch is one of the older kind, and I can take out the works from the case altogether. They continue to go, only they do not tell the hour. Our soul and spirit may one day leave the body, and still live; if saved (born again), then they will definitely go to be “with Christ” (2 CORINTHIANS:8), if however unsaved, they go to a hopeless misery.

In resurrection, beyond death, the soul and body will be reunited, and the one person who now lives will continue forever as saved or lost. So choose this day whom you will serve, for the time is short – flee to Jesus Christ, and receive the free gift of eternal life today!!!

OVERCOMING PREJUDICE IN THE CHURCH TODAY

26 Jun

black-white-hands

FATHER GOD,

in the name of Jesus Christ we come before You, asking Your forgiveness for being intolerant of one another because of the colours of our skin. Forgive us for tolerating prejudice in the household of faith. Set us free from the influence of public opinion that we may live out our glorious, Christ-originated faith.

Forgive us for segregating ourselves by colour, by a measure of wealth or intellect. We are all Your children, the sheep of Your pasture. You made us, and not we ourselves. We are one blood, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, Who was slain before the foundation of the world. We are baptised “into” Christ and have put on the family likeness of Christ.

We call for an end to division and segregation in Christ’s family – may there be no division into Jew and non-Jew, black and white, slave and free, male and female. Among us we are all equal. That is, we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ. Thank You, Father, for bringing black and white people together in Christ through His death on the Cross. The Cross got us all to embrace each other, and that was the end of the hostility.

LORD, You are building a home. You are using us all – irrespective of how we got here. Father, You have called black and white Christians and all people from all ethnic backgrounds to travel on the same road, and in the same direction, so we will stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. There is no such thing as a black church or a white church – for we all have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all – Who rules over all, works through all,and is present in all.

Thank You, Father, that prejudice is being rooted out of all black led churches and white led churches throughout the world, and in the Body of Christ, in the name of Jesus Christ. AMEN & AMEN & AMEN!!!
