3 Mentoring Theological concepts

4  Life of Jesus Christ - model for Christians worthy of imitation  "Follow me " is the call to us in our spiritual life.  Our life is to be like Christ (Luke 6:40); obey His commands (Matt.28:19-20).

5  Paul stresses the imitative nature of mentoring (1 Thess.1:6-7), (2 Tim.2:2);  Predestined to be conformed to the likeness of Jesus (Rom.8:29),  Attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ (Eph.4:13).

6  Christlikeness is a growth process - mature and increase our God-given capacities.  Paul also emphasizes the " handing down " aspect (1Cor.11:23-24) -  - the transmission of teaching from one person to another, past to future;  - passing of the faith and His grace; handing down wisdom & skills through generations.

7  Spiritual formation - requires mentorship of the heart; a relationship with a teacher of life; a way of life that is formed; a life shared by people who have learned that spiritual music is sung in its own way.  Nurturing our lives of faith - spending time with experienced and wise mentors.

8  Togetherness - community of believers helping each other in spiritual maturity; discover our identity in the context of community; learn best together with help of others.

9  Mentoring - investment in the life of others  Mentoring - a relationship built up with a person used by God to:  - change the course of your life,  - redirecting your path at a critical moment,  - have a lasting personal influence & impression in your life.

10  Mentoring is a life changing life, or life shaping life, relationship for the benefit of each other,  - in the light of the work of the Holy Spirit,  - for the glory of God.  " As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another " (Prov.27:17)

11  Motivating factors of Mentorship:  - to promote personal growth  - to provide a model for mentoree to follow  - to help mentoree reach his goal more efficiently  - to influence mentoree so that he would in turn influence others (2 Tim.2:2).

12  Mentoring is a life-guiding, problem-solving, and goal- orienting activity,  with the ultimate outcome of pointing others to the direction of Jesus Christ.
