Introduction 50Days of Discipleship New
1 Corinthians 1:23 23 but we preach Christ crucified
Christ crucified. Power and the wisdom of God (not of men). God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. Because of Him you are in Christ Jesus, Who has become for us wisdom from God – that is, our RIGHTEOUSNESS, OUR HOLINESS, OUR REDEMPTION.
That is what our preaching is about. Preaching Christ Jesus.
Preaching Christ, that is clear. But do not forget to preach Jesus Christ, instead of condemnation, the law and fear. Jesus is love. Learn to let the Holy Spirit work and flow through your life. Wait, be quiet and listen! The Holy Spirit wants to speak through you and to all the others. Try to shut down your own thoughts. Try thinking at totally nothing. The Holy Spirit will start talking. Power and wisdom you will see coming in your meeting and church or home group.
The doing. Acts 1:1-2 (NIV) 1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen.
That’s our goal. To do, to teach and give instructions. To act on what Jesus told His disciples and He also told us.
It is my vision that the way Jesus was 40 days with His Disciples, after His resurrection, and He explained them everything about the Kingdom of God, we also want to learn and teach disciples.
Jesus pointed me on this, that it is good to make disciples, by learning them about the Kingdom of God, do what He did and to explain the things that happened with Him. And then in Luke 24:31 is written:
31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.
So I came to understand, that, when we meet the resurrected Jesus, we will SEE! When you meet Jesus, you understand, and by understanding what He did for you, things will change in your life.
And then we also come in the situation of prayer and fasting.
ACTS 1:14 14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
They were together in UNITY and were praying and fasting.
That is 40 days, that Jesus was with them, to learn them, and 10 days they were waiting and praying in unity and that is totally 50 days.
This is my prayer.
That we can also establish that.
This is what I want to teach and bring to this world. Making disciples, who know where it’s all about, and who are willing to bow their knees, to serve God. Not being more or better than the other, but in UNITY. And I know the world around you will change. And we can send out these people to start the same principles in their own town or village.
Do one or two lessons at a time, with a maximum of two per day.
READ THE LESSONS. READ THEM CAREFULLY. DO NOT TRY TO ANSWER ONLY THE QUESTIONS, WE CONTROL THAT. WE REMOVE STUDENTS WHO DO THE COURSE IN 24 HOURS. IF YOU DO MORE, YOU WILL BE PUT ON HOLD. THEN WE WILL MARK YOUR LESSONS WHEN WE HAVE TIME OR GET RESPONSES.
How do you start?
First of all, we are very glad and excited to have you here. It will help you in your life as a believer and minister.
Before starting we would like to point at the importance of reading the lessons.
Read the lessons carefully.
Sometimes the questions are easy, and some answer them without reading the lessons. The mentor will recognize that easily and will put you on hold.
Read 1 or 2 lessons a day OR LESS. Take your time, there is no hurry. Then you answer the questions.
After you answered, we ‘mark’ the answers. If you go to fast, you will not understand the corrections and questions, so take it easy. Sometimes we ask you questions. Please answer them. We want to get to know you better. So we can also pray for you.
If your lesson is marked, you will see that. Above on your screen you will see also an orange balloon with numbers. There you find our messages to you. You have to read them.
This is a school. Not a game. Do not see it as cheap, but see it as an advantage for your life in Christ and in the church today. These lessons provide you with more knowledge and experience and with the certificate, you will be encouraged and empowered to learn and do more.
After the first lesson there are questions and after that also a list of some few questions. We are looking forward to read your response.
It might seem this is just a program on the internet, but there are real people behind it. There are mentors, they want to hear from you and to have contact during the course. So we expect from you, that you react on their questions and remarks. When you get a message, please answer.
God bless you!
