Taking the Job Well Done

It was an awesome opportunity for me to enhance my knowledge about the ministry. I am currently taking the subject which is really useful in urban setting. This are some of the things I learn. Theological affirmation for urban ministry.

1. Christ is the Lord of the city as well as of the countryside.


2. Cities are part of God's design from the beginning.

3. The "dominion" God gave man includes cities as well as natural creation.

4. Cities provide the opportunity for human sinfulness to show its worst, and for God's grace, power and
    glory to be visible as nowhere else.



5. Cities are the breeding ground for culture and technology, which can be used for evil or good.

6. The city is not only a collection of individuals, but it is a corporate entity that is more than a sum of its
    parts.

7. There is a role for God's people in the city: a righteous remnant, agents of Shalom, and active witnesses.

8. The believer is like Abraham, the "Expectant Sojourner" looking for the city whose builder and maker is
    God as he travels the city of the world.

9. The believer has citizenship in the "Celestial City" and is a member of the New City Community.
    Nevertheless, he abides temporarily in the cities of man. He feels the tension between the "City of God"
    and the "City of Man".

10. In City and country, the heart of the mission of God in Christ is to reconcile men and women to Himself
      through Christ's sacrifice on the cross.

11. Christ directed His ministry city folk and rural, and He upbraided the cities corporately for their unbelief.

12. Evangelism in the city involves presence, proclamation, church planting, and the practice and promotion
     of Shalom.

I'm learning a lot and it is really applicable for the expansion of the Kingdom of God.
