over a year; twelve hours to rule over the two periods of a day; twelve tribes to rule the people of Israel.When the Lord Jesus Christ came into this world, he said something: “I will build my church.” TheLord came to have a church with people, and he established that foundation with the twelve apostles.Jesus focused himself on forming twelve men having as a mission reproducing his character intothem; and through his teachings, he cleased them. They became the pillars which most of theChristian faith would rely on. Ephesians 2:20 says, “Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.”Why is it important the concept of the governing of the twelve? Where there is leadership, there must be a successor. If the Lord´s life would had only focused on preaching to the multitudes and not onwhat he did, he would not have reproduced his vision into other people. Christianty would possiblyhave come to an end from the very beginning.The book of Jeremiah 31:33 says that God was going to do something new. What would that be? “Iwill put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts”. The vision of the twelve is the law of God; it is something you grasp in the spirit. It goes farther than what is operational because it is aspiritual concept where the finger of God must write the vision in our own hearts and not on anytablet.What did the Lord do so the vision of the twelve might have some shape? The vision is in people, andthe Holy Spirit is the one giving its shape; He makes it beautiful and attractive, and have it unfoldedin an organized and strategic way. The same Holy Spirit would lead us to work on the followingaspects:1. The individual´s character: A leader knowledgeable of the word but lacking character, is asdangerous as giving a fire arm to a child. The first thing one must do is to work out the foundation.The building will stand with a good foundation; but if not, it will fall at any moment. We find leaderswho are knowledgeabe of the word, master the Old and New Testament, and master the differenttheological and eschatological concepts. But many of them have not worked on their character.Before telling them to go and win the nations, the first thing the Lord did with his twelve was the building of character into them When did He give them responsabilities? When the Lord saw in themthat character was built. And he said to them “now go and make disciples of all nations”.2. Developing Faith: Now, for somebody to work the vision they must enter the dimension of faith.You may remember when the Lord takes the prophet Ezekiel to a valley of dry bones and says to him,“Can these bones live?” Ezekiel looks disappointed and says, “Lord, you alone know; I do not”. Howmany times do we look at our city, our nation, and the people and we see a valley of dry bones?People who do not want to be commited; who are dead in their sins, and when the Lord says, “Canthese dry bones live?” you say,´Lord, you know; I leave this only to your will. When you win people,you must see them through the eyes of faith, as if the Lord would see them.3. Reject your past life: Luke 14:26 says that even if people feel that affection bond and it has priorityover Jesus´ love, that individual is not worthy to follow Him. That is to say, discipleship has priorityover: Filial affection; the love of parents, children, and spouce. The commitment towards Jesus isabove them all.4. Daily self-denial: Luke 14:27. Whoever wants to serve the Lord must take their cross and folllowhim daily. It is referred specifically that we must take our mind, feelings, desires, selves, and our flesh to the cross and crucify it together with Christ. Paul said, “I die daily”; we are living in a bodywith desires and passions.
