Good news

2024-02-14

As a Christian, I believe that through accepting Jesus Christ as my savior, I have been given a new life. Before I found Christ, I was lost, broken, and hopeless. But through his grace and forgiveness, I have been given a new start. I am no longer burdened by my past mistakes and sin, but instead, I am filled with joy, peace, and purpose.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” This verse perfectly captures the transformation that has taken place in my life. I am no longer the person I used to be. I have been made new through my faith in Jesus.

This new life has also given me a sense of belonging and community. I am now a part of the family of believers, surrounded by people who love and support me. I am also able to experience God’s presence and guidance in my daily life, knowing that I am never alone.

I am grateful for the new life that I have been given as a Christian. It has brought me healing, redemption, and a deep sense of purpose. I am forever thankful for the love and grace of Jesus Christ, and I am excited to continue living out this new life in service to others and to God.

What I have learnt In this Subject..Engaging Scriptures

2024-02-14

I thank the Lord Jesus Christ and the AXX family for this God given opportunity to study His Word.

I do appreciate my teacher Dr Matt for his humblenes and eloquent admirable Character.

I look forward to his teaching in the coming lessons.

My summary

1. Bible came from God through men by the Holy Ghost.

2. It is the true word of God.

3. It has to be interpretated correctly using authentic acceptable resources with sound doctrine.

4. Correct interpretation will lead to Sound teaching that will be helpful to the people of God.

5. Preachers have to be taught inorder to be able to do Correct exegesis.

6. We need teachers who have the knowledge to teach the men and women of God to do this.

7. It is not enough to here and understand the word, one must be able to apply the according to the principle that comes out from the scripture.

Mission

2023-12-20

The word of God says, “for God so loved the world and He gave His only begotten son. So God also sent us to the world for His people that he loves. In summary, We are in a mission to the world, I believe from what I have learned from this session we are called to change the world. I also learned that we need to understand the cultures wherever we are called to minister, we also need to understand the world so that we don’t look primitive to the hearers of the gospel.

Gospel to every tribe, language and nation

2023-11-15

I have learned that God’s plan for His kingdom was not meant for few people or for a specific nation but for all. So as servants of God we are obliged to take the gospel as we mandated by our Lord Jesus Christ on Matthew 28:19-20. I have also learned how important is the history in the bible. It teaches us how those who came before us carried their duties and their obedience before God.

The most powerful message that I have learned in this course is partnering with God

2023-12-20

The most powerful message that I have learned in this course is partnering with God wherever and whenever He is at work in our community, Jesus Christ is a good example, he modelled a lifestyle of shepherding His community in places that He was not expected to be seen due to His holiness. That teaches us to be seen in our community; helping, participating in celebrations and mourning with our community. Team work in pastoral care and other ministries is also very important as well as spiritual gifts that God gave us are also a vital tool to the mission. Matthew 28:19 always reminds us to go on a mission. Making disciples is what our Lord Jesus Christ called us to do. John 3:16 says God so loved the world and He gave His only begotten son, so it is in the world that God sent us not only in our local churches but God loved the world He wants the world to see the light; Matthew 5:13-14 says we are the light of the world so we need to go to the world so that it may see the light.
