There are many exciting challenges and not a few perils on the Pathway with Christ. It is important, therefore, to know not only that Your Guide is with you, but also what sort of Guide He is! So, come, join us as we lean into God’s (1) bountiful goodness and self-giving love, (2) pure holiness, (3) unsearchable wisdom, (4) sovereign power, and (5) unequaled majesty.
The pathway journey with Christ is not a sprint, per se. It is a marathon! This fact often seems to be lost on many travellers. So, let’s keep this in mind and stay nourished on the journey. We can do this by daily engaging in the Biblically-based, spiritual practice of meeting with God in His word and prayer. We call this a Quiet Time.
Many journeys require a map. The Pathway journey with Christ is no different. It cannot be successfully navigated without an increasing knowledge of a God-given map. The purpose of this course is to learn to walk with Christ on the Pathway by becoming increasingly aware of the guidance given us in Scripture, God’s map for the journey.
The Pathway with Christ is not designed to be journeyed alone. Giving and receiving encouragement, strength and insight along the pathway happens best when we intentionally travel with other faithful travellers. Come join us in this course as we seek to learn what it means to walk with Christ and His people.
“The harvest is plentiful,” Jesus told His disciples. But, where are the workers? As we journey the Pathway with Christ we will encounter many people – among family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, etc – who have never heard a relevant presentation of the Good News. We want to learn how to do just that in this course.
Not all the Pathway is paved! As we journey with Christ, we will go through trials, some imposed inwardly, some imposed from outside. We face three main enemies (1) worldly systems opposed to God, (2) our own fallenness, and (3) Satan himself. Let’s examine these enemies with a view to gaining victory over them.
The heart of the Pathway journey with Christ is all about trusting Him and following Him. Here, in course 2 of PathwayForward, we will explore this theme and a host of related themes as well. The goal is to learn more from Jesus about what it means to trust Him implicitly and follow Him wholeheartedly.
“Very early in the morning … Jesus…went off to a solitary place where He prayed.” A solitary place was for Jesus, a special place – a place where He could go, remove Himself from the bustling crowds, and seek His Father’s will. In this course we also will learn to draw aside and be with the Lord, to seek His face and experience His will for our Pathway journey.
God’s gifts are diverse and meant to be both enjoyed and shared with others! Amazing fact: We have been called by God to give up our lives so that others may live! The focus of this course is on how to do just that, i.e., how to love others, communicate the gospel, and teach all about Pathway living.
