This first Module is aimed at building a strong foundation as followers of Jesus Christ. We can only help others to become disciples
as far as we have been discipled ourselves.
What we teach others must be in accordance with our own life. We have to be true disciples following Jesus wholeheartedly. In that way we are being
transformed to His image, and in time we can join Paul in saying:
“Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.”(1st Cor 11v1)
“As the Son was sent by the Father (131) so He too sent the Apostles, saying: “Go,
therefore, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days even to
the consummation of the world” (132) The Church has received this solemn
mandate of Christ to proclaim the saving truth from the apostles and must carry it out to the very ends of the earth.(133)
Wherefore she makes the words of the Apostle her own: “Woe to me, if I do not preach the Gospel”,(134)
(Lumen Gentium POPE PAUL VI)
“Faith is above all a personal, intimate encounter with Jesus and to experience
his closeness,his friendship and his love. Only in this way does one learn to
know him evermore and to love and follow him evermore may this happen to
each one of us”
(Pope Benedict Benedict the 16th)
The outlines for each lesson have been purposely kept short to allow each
student to actively record what the holy spirit is highlighting to them personally
thereby increasing the learning process.
There should be a time for reflection and Q&A therefore taking notes is not optional it is essential.
“Your Learning should always be on your lips and finger tips”
Let us begin our journey and may God richly bless you as we proceed in our studies together.
