PEOPLE THAT ARE LOOKING, SERCHING FOR GOD - RECEIVED GOD.

2022-11-07

It takes a heart that is looking for God to receive the dealings of God towards missions.

This course helps me to see myself round the world with the desire to do missions within cultures if impowered by God.

Studying intercultural mission has given me another level of understanding of Gods ministry. It has given me a world and a global view of humanity. Professor Ian L Grant {fast in lecturing} in his lecture said intercultural ministry allows one to get a world and a global vision. And it also allows you to get a global purpose. He said mission is the heart of God. That one that will search for the God of mission will received Him.

Exploring from Acts 1-2, 10-11, 17:24-34 Ian explained that all people of the world are God’s people.

On whom a world Christian is he said a believer should be able to wholeheartedly embrace every person and people as God’s human family. such a Christian can look at a Muslim Hindu Buddhist etc. and say God created this person, God love this person as he loves me, Jesus came and died for this person. He knowledge Christ coming as the redemptive measure for all people without discrimination or favor.

One interesting statement I learned is that UNLESS AND UNTILL THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD BECOMES MORE AND IMPORTANT THAT THE FUTRE OF THE CHURCH THE CHUCH HAS NO FUTURE.

Some topics Professor Ian L. Grant Lectured are: The call of God. What and why of mission. Mission and God’s role.

lecturing on History of missions stirred up my passion on missions by hearing of pioneers on missions. eg. Zinzendorf, Carrey etc. These have such a passion and love for God. He pointed out that Stephen in the bible addressed the Sanhedrins putting Jesus in the center. That the purpose of God church history is reintegration of distorted cosmos through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and with this the reconciliation of things to Himself.

Thanks to axx for such a great opportunity to learn.

I am clear on building strong teams when going on a mission and I now have clear understanding on what to expect when going from place to place and that as the cultures will differ how will I handle myself as I present the Good News
