Lessons In This Module
The Bible is a book of Covenant. As such, covenant terminology is threaded all the way through its pages, from Genesis to Revelation. This study will help us understand the language of Covenant and open our eyes to a deeper revelation of what the Scriptures say. Our covenant with God through Christ is the very basis of our faith. He has committed Himself with absolute loyalty to ensure that all that was lost in Adam is now restored to us in Christ, and that nothing and no one can prevent this from happening. The means to accomplish this phenomenal act of grace is Blood Covenant. We will be exploring the life transforming implications of this for the believer in this session.
The Bible declares four times that the just shall live by faith. We are also informed that it is impossible to please God without faith. Clearly faith is a subject that is essential if we are to please God and really live the life He has prepared for us. In these sessions we will explore the Scriptural teaching concerning the development and exercise of faith. Matthew 6:33 says: But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. (Matthew 6:33 AMP). There are ways of being and of doing that release the resources of heaven and earth into our lives. Faith and its operation is not an optional lesson for the sincere disciple. The Bible declares that without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb 11:6), but that He richly rewards those who choose to do things His way.
In these sessions we will look at the important area of finances. Finance and money is something that touches all of our lives every day. It is not a subject the Bible ignores and nor should we. Abuses on both sides have led to many imbalanced teachings concerning money; from the lie that God wants everyone poor and money is inherently evil, to the equally preposterous teaching that our spirituality is gauged by our financial success. Neither of these ditches on the sides of the road of truth are accurate. The Scriptures however do teach much about a Kingdom system of finance: clear financial principles, which when lived by, produce increase in the lives of those who apply them, and subsequently blessing for all whom they are empowered to bless. We are blessed to be a blessing.
This session covers the overarching Truth which encompasses all other subjects in the Scriptures. God Himself is Love, and calls His people to live a life which demonstrates His character and quality of love to one another and to the world. We will dive into this subject and allow it to purge our hearts of every other motive. Love is not a mere doctrine, it is the doctrine of the Church. As Paul says in 1 Cor 8:1, knowledge alone merely puffs up, but love builds up, and we are called to build!
During His ministry on earth Jesus had much to say about the cost of discipleship. He also instructed His disciples to go into all the world and make disciples in every nation. What does this mean for us as His followers? What does it mean to be a disciplined one, and train others in like manner. In order not to fall into the trap of legalism or a religion of works, many people have moved away from the importance of spiritual discipline as an essential part of Christian living. In living and acting according to how one feels, however, rather than according to disciplined principles revealed in the Scriptures, we fail to move into higher levels of effectiveness in our Christian walk. Be more than one of the multitude who follow Jesus, become a disciple…
Praise and worship is something that the very character and holiness of God demands. All of creation recognises His Lordship, and ultimately every being in the universe will bow before Him. The Bible is a history of His worshippers, a history we gladly continue today as we follow God, and as we worship Him in Spirit and Truth. Ultimately, the goal of every disciple should be to develop worship, praise and thanksgiving as a lifestyle, applying its principles actively in every area of their life. As with every session in this module, we discover that doctrine alone is pointless without practical application, and that, as we become doers of the Word, great power (dynamic in its working) is released in and through our lives.
