This lesson is the first in a series of lessons that will survey the entire Old Testament. We have entitled this series, Kingdom, Covenants and Canon of the Old Testament. As this series title suggests, in these lessons we will focus on three crucial dimensions of the Old Testament.

Like a tree, the Way of Discipleship roots us in Christ, provides stability to weather the storms of life and branches out to bear fruit in our lives. This resource is a tool to facilitate this relationship over a period of one-to-three years to integrate these practices into one’s life and prepare the disciple to replicate it into another relationship. It will be costly, but the cause is worth it more than anything else the world has to offer.

Value and Courage by Eduardo Villegas translated into Spanish

Regardless of your circumstances, God has big plans for you today. He put dreams in your soul that, although buried, breathe; and He put ideas in your heart that, although they seem unattainable, are possible, with His guidance. He hasn’t abandoned you or any of your dreams. He doesn’t deny you or your complete manifestation of His glory. Your dreams, if they come from God, are real, possible. He thought of them and He entrusted them to you, which is why David said The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me…
We must not ignore God’s dreams, because they are His will, meaning they can and must be achieved. Excuses, on the other hand, don’t exist, rather they are illusions. We can construct them with many justifications, so they seem real, but sooner or later they will bring sadness, Excuses mustn’t replace your dreams; your mission must not be cut short. In this book you will discover how great your Value is to God according to His Word, and later you will develop Courage to dare to do His will, guided by Him.
