405 Recognizing Our Calling and Following the Steps of Jesus and Paul
All the followers of Jesus Christ are called to the mission of God. Many Christians though have asked at a pivotal moment, “Am I called to be a missionary?” One of the most important decisions in life after the decision to accept Jesus for salvation is to determine how you can please God. How can you serve Him? What ultimate sacrifice can you offer to Him Who offered His life as a sacrifice for you? God calls us, regardless of our age, gender, and ethnicity to serve Him. This course will lead you through the Scriptures to help you determine if His call includes being a missionary. In the Great Commission we hear Jesus loud and clear say “GO!” Yet, His command was not to “go” but to make disciples while going. God has called us to make disciples as a part of our calling. Discipleship should be the purpose of any outreach whether it is local or global. Both Jesus and Paul left a legacy of discipleship. This course will follow the tracks of Jesus’ and Paul’s teaching with the examples of the lives they lived. Biblical discipleship is a model of how Christians could and should live their lives.
