Old testament overview

November 2, 2022

After listening and reading through and confirming the teachings with the scriptures. The Biblical narrative has opened my mind to link the old testament to the new testament and how God has always planned to include everyone into the plan of salvation. It has brought an understanding that despite the Israelites/Jews being the chosen people in the beginning, God intended to extend His plan of salvation to everyone even to the gentiles who by faith in Jesus Christ would receive the circumcision of their hearts through the receiving of the Holy Spirit so that everyone becomes the partakers of salvation.

The prophets in the old testament pointed towards Jesus Christ as the Messiah and the true King , the salvation and life Himself.

Meaning and application

November 3, 2022

By the grace of God, I have acquired the skill to understand the meaning of scripture text, how to translate it from the biblical context, compare it with other scriptures, and applying it to my life. Also, I have learned about the explicit and concrete principle of the scriptures which is God’s statement to us on how we should live. The word of God has now become personal to me, before teaching others

Analysis and application of the Bible teachings

November 2, 2022

The teaching has helped me to have an understanding of how to approach Biblical teachings, stories and verses in that we should be open minded to the setting of the Bible passages, author, timing, culture, location and to understand the circumstances around those particular writings in the Bible before applying those texts to our current lives. We must create a link and understand the contexts and several clues to various Bible passages.

THOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH...

November 2, 2022

I return the glory and honor unto God Almighty who made it possible for me to enroll in this course work at no cost. I am grateful to the founder and his executives for being so generous and warm hearted to afford us such a noble privilege. May God richly reward you all.

I thank God for the improved exposure to his word since I joined this ministry. Inherited core values and culture in many parts of Africa’s society interfere with the interpretation of the reality of the text; so that lots of us became religiously inclined rather than scripturally based, if you know what I mean. Most of us can recite scriptures and even quote them out of context to suit or appease the circumstances or a prayer session. For instance: It is common to find many who would quote Luke 1:37 (NKJ) “…with God all things are possible.” I had almost believed that my availability and/or will were not counted if God was involved; until I beheld Andrew’s teachings on contextual reading. I went back to that scripture and reviewed it from verse 26, to actually understand that the angel was addressing Mary, a virgin, who was already pale and shaking, I can imagine, into letting her to believe and confess according to God’s word. Where would Mary have ever got that faith to be the mother of Jesus, if God didn’t help but first believing and then make available. Immediately that happened in verse 38, the messenger left. Since then my perception on Luke 1:37 has changed. I now know that it is not only ‘with God’ but that I have to believe and confess what God says before it shall come to pass.

Notwithstanding, I couldn’t quite follow the extract principle and the example with 3 John 2. I think Andrew was repeating the same thing Paul meant when he said, “I pray that you…” meaning a wish. It is true to think therefore that not everybody were going to prosper as re-echoed by Andrew and therefore can be applied to other scriptures. Furthermore I’m struggling with understanding how Jesus’ comment of not serving two masters tie up with 3 John 2. Can you further help please? Thanks

Church history part 2

November 19, 2021

It was so empowering just to know power accumulation in those days led to major corruption. The things people were doing in private were now done publicly eg murder, sex and people became greedy. People rejected the way of Christ. Forgiveness was based on contributions people made in church. Salvation is by faith in Christ alone. What a great awakening in the 1730 when the God’s spirit began. Wesley saw the need for methodical process for people to grow in faith. Massive expansion of missinary activities realised in the 19th century.

Faithful witness - yielded, surrendered and in sinc with our God

November 3, 2021

I enjoyed hearing the commentary on the History – how the mission of God has been out working throughout His timeline. To also consider what that looks like for HIs people in this post Covid 19 world. Being positioned to have a listening ear that allows Holy Spirit to renew our minds, strengthen and prepare us to receive His blueprint and strategy that will direct our steps for the new era we have entered into. A faithful witness with a heart always positioned to learn from His perspective. Yielded and surrendered to Holy Spirit – being willing to move as He moves, truly in sinc and as one with Him.

I have been navigating through the course contents and I have discovered alot of things which assured me to be a good leader in my ministry and I have tegarded as a hope for most of leaders.

Self leadership has a very important skills. For instance using compass approach to lead the subordinates,leaders who are above your position ,peer group and yourself is really a wonderful and successiful stage in leadership.

In spiritual formation where one is expected grow in ministry at the same time evaluating her self or himself and evaluating co labourers so as to attain the goals and good fruits in the ministry

Integrity is as precious as gold in both personal goals and spiritual growth.Every leader ought to have it and develop it to have good reputation.

Just mentioning a few,the course rich in hopes for good spiritual growth and personal goals.

Leadership

October 10, 2022

A leader in a church must imitate Christ by being humble. It is important to teach things which you also practice in your life. If you want your ministry to grow, accept criticism from others.We also must surrender every things to Christ that bring hindrance in the Church. Honest and good character must be possessed by every leader. Let first be the doer of the word ourselves so that we not disqualified.

FEEDOM THROUGH DISCIPLINE

September 12, 2022

While navigating through the course,I have come across with a lot of new spiritual knowledge and skills to be applied in spiritual life for persona growth.

The truth set us free. The freedom cannot be acquired without discipline.These work like twins.

We ought to be well and most disciplined leaders.This will help us not wasting moment or a word during the acceptable time and yet relaxed.As one of quote motto” This is a place of Freedom through Discipline”

Though disciplines are not laws,have numbers of benefits as they nurture spiritual health,foster spiritual growth leading to maurity.

On top of that they encourage the imitation of Christ and allow us to act inwaysthat are centred in God’s will.They give us a rule of conduct that directs us in the path of growing skills in living before God . They remind us daily spiritual life and balance between dependence and responsible action through grace.

The course create awarenrss on what we should abstain from and and what we could engage in. For instance we should abstain from extravagance,sexual immorality but engage in worship,submission,confession and spiritual fellowship

Relationship is other anchor of spiritual growth factor as it facilitate strength in an individual and in the team.

We are created in connectedness not in isolation. Relationship in workplace and in ministry as well.

Just to mention a few,but in reality I have very blessed with the course. God bless AXX Global Ministry!

I found this unit a great high level overview of the different elements of teamwork and pastoral care. It provided a good overall perspective and highlighted areas that could be explored further if desired. If you haven’t already invested time and training in this area, then start here.
