‘Konongo’ is a name of a town in Ghana. Kaya is a word in Twi language which simply means a potter – someone who carries people’s goods and luggage to their destination.
It is said of potters in Konongo that anytime they come to somebody in order to carry the luggage of the person, they would not carry; unfortunately, they would not also allow somebody else to carry the luggage.
In our lives, sometimes we behave like these potters. We are aware ourselves that we do not want to be saved by Jesus.
But we also don’t want to give way to those willing to go to go.
The devil is the chief ”Konongo kaya.”
He has lost any chance of going back to Heaven; he wouldn’t want us to go neither.
But ”Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
James 4:7. My dear friend, don’t be a ”Konongo Kaya” in your Christian life.
If you don’t want to go to Heaven, fair enough, don’t, by your actions, impede and inhibit others from going to Heaven.
Stand Up for Jesus! friend, If not, stand aside for others to stand up for Him.
Give way to others to be serious and hardworking in life if you are not willing to do that.
Don’t discourage others from worshiping God if you are not ready to serve Him.
Above all, let us, as Christians, prevent anyone who would be a stumbling block on a way to Heaven from stopping us from going to Heaven.
The blind Bartimaeus had a lot of ‘Konongo Kaya ‘s on his way to Jesus who shut him down and bid him not to make noise.
However, this man kept on calling Jesus, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me.”
Through his perseverance, he was able to reach out to Jesus and he had his healing. Refuse to be impeded by anybody in this life, be it academic pursuance, spiritual pursuance etc.
Focus on Jesus Christ! God loves you, dear; you are precious to Him.
