Welcome to this short course entitled “Simple Outreach.” The goal of this course is to help you fulfill your calling or purpose in life, which is to glorify God by reaching out to others. Doing so will result in multiple blessings for them as well as for you. It will also bring glory to God, because this is the reason why He saved you.
9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)
This course is for anyone who wishes to follow Christ seriously. If you truly believe in Him, you need to obey Him, for He commands all His followers to go and make disciples of all nations.
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
You will be reading a series of articles. Each article is short, but it is meant to be read slowly and repeatedly. Also, you need to discuss each article with a mentor. He or she will ask you questions about what you’ve read. The goal is to help you internalize what you’ve learned. It’s very easy to read something and then forget it quickly. In addition, you and your mentor must agree on a practical application. You are not really learning unless you are also applying or doing something about what you’re learning. So before moving to the next lesson, you must work out the lesson in your own life and report it to your mentor.
