One of the greatest challenges in life is to get along with other people around us, may it be in the work place, at home and at Church or in ministry. Up to 87% of our success in life is directly related to our ability to get along with other people. The problem with relationships is that 90-95% of the people that we deal with in life are either moderately or severely insecure people. To compound this, most of the time we are also insecure ourselves and herein lies the problem. There is nothing that kills a relationship or a vision, and a ministry quicker than personal and unresolved insecurities. It is important to realize that getting along with other people has more to do with us than it has to do with them. Even though knowing God’s love will effortlessly change us and influence the way we relate to others, we sometimes still need to practically work on getting along with other people.
Just as there is a grossly inaccurate concept and belief about God in the hearts of so many believers today, there is also an equally destructive and crippling belief in the hearts of believers about the value of man. One thing that we must understand about religion and legalism is that it is designed to destroy all dignity and worth. That is why people who are deeply involved in religion and legalism invariably end up with no sense of self worth, value or dignity. If we as Christians are not taught and instructed in a proper Biblical sense of self worth that is based on gospel truth, we will always struggle to get Bible truth to work in our lives on a consistent basis. If what we believe does not make us feel good about our relationship with God and good about ourselves, it will be very difficult to get the truth of the New Testament to work for me on a consistent basis.
God has given each of us a unique purpose and destiny to fulfill. Yet our highest purpose is to be conformed to the image of His Son – Rom. 8:28-29. This course is a study in how you may appropriate and manifest the life of Christ – His character and nature – in the earth today. The focus of this teaching is to help you identify and yield to the image of Christ and to walk in Christ-likeness.
This subject deals with recognizing the ability of God through our lives in ministry. Learning how to appropriate the supernatural ability of God in our lives, it deals with the supernatural powers that be, including: 1) Angelic, 2) Demonic Spirits, 3) The overcoming victorious powers of our Lord.
This course prepares us for the ministry the Father has for us. It is about personal growth, understanding the basic principles of pioneering, as well as the miracle ministry the Lord will work through us.
