Agendeye ku nkuru dusanga muri Bibiliya, ahagiye haboneka jenoside n’ ibikorwa by’ ubwicanyi ndenga kamere yagaragaje imizi itatu y’ ingengabitekerezo ya jenoside n’ umuti wayo.

umuzi wa mbere: ubwoba

Mu gitabo cyo Kuva 2: 16 Farawo yatanze itegeko ryo kwica umwana wese w’ umuhungu w’ umuheburayo agambiriye kuburizamo ubwoko bw’ abisirayeli buhoro buhoro (jenoside) abitewe n’ ubwoba bw’ uko bazagwira bakabarusha amaboko.

Umuzi wa kabiri: umutima ukomeretse

Mu gitabo cya Esiteri igice cya 3, Hamani mwene Hamada umwagagi (akomoka kuri Agagi uwo Sawuli yishe muri 1Samweli 15 ) yacuze umugambi wo kurimbura abisirayeli bose (jenoside), nyuma yo kubaza ubwoko bwa Morodekayi no kumenya ko ari umuisirayeli aribo bishe sekuruza Agagi.

Umuzi wa gatatu: inyotay’ubutegetsi

Mu butumwa bwiza uko bwanditswe na Matayo 2.16, Umwami Herode yategetse ko bica abana bose bari munsi y’imyaka ibiri (ubwicanyi ndengakamere) abitewe n’ uko yumvise ko havutse undi mwami uzamusimbura ku butegetsi.

Nyuma yo kugaragaza iyo mizi no gusobanura aho ihuriye na jenoside yakorewe abatutsi, yagaragaje n’ igisubizo ijambo ry’Imana ritanga;
Ubwoba: umuntu udafite Imana muri we iteka ahorana ubwoba, ariko urukundo rwuzuye rumara ubwoba (1Yohana 4:18);
Umutima ukomeretse: umusaraba wa Yesu ni wo gisubizo cy’ umutima ukomeretse kuko Kristo yikoreye intimba zacu (Yesaya 53).

Ku kijyanye n’ inyota y’ ubutegetsi yibukije ko kuzamuka kudaturuka iburasirazuba cyangwa iburengerazuba ahubwo Imana icisha bugufi umwe igashyira undi hejuru (Zaburi 75.7-89); aha kandi yagarutse ku nzozi bari bafite ubwo batangizaga umuryango wa GBUR, barotaga kubona igihugu gifite abayobozi bashishikajwe no guteza imbere abo bayobora kubw’ icyubahiro cy’ Imana kurata kwiteza imbere bo ubwabo.

Pastor Antoine yongeye gushimangira ko umwenda ukomeye dufitiye abo twibuka nka GBUR, ari ugusohoza icyo batangiye, aricyo kwimakaza indangagaciro za bibiliya tukarwanya ivangura n’ itotezwa iryo ari ryose.

Mu gihe uwari uhagarariye GBUR, Muvandimwe Eric Manasseh (Vice Chairman GBUR), yagarutse ku mpamvu twibuka: tutibutse twazimira n’ umukoro wacu twese nk’ abanyarwanda bariho nyuma ya jenoside: kubaka igihugu kizira ingengabitekerezo ya jenoside.

Going back to the sound foundation and structure of GBUR ministry

After farewell (handover) parties that marked the ends of the 2015-2016 academic year in GBUs all over the country, students saying goodbye to their finalists and ushering in new leader; in the weekend of 27th to 29th May, 2016 GBUR office through its ministry lane of leadership development had organized a two days training for new GBU leaders, to be equipped with biblical principles to model servant leadership.

GBUR leadership training started on Friday 27th May, 2016; participants arrived around 6pm as scheduled and after registration and presentations, they were introduced to the history and the background of GBUR in particular and IFES (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students) movement in general.

In a session led by Slydio Dusabumuremyi a former general secretary of GBUR, through an expository preaching of a passage in Isaiah 55, he explained the fullness of life in God’s word (Bible), the fullness, that can never be guaranteed anywhere else, except in the word of God (Bible), on which GBUR ministry is centered; and through a presentation of a historical background, he explained the evolution of GBUR ministry since its creation in 1984 until now.

In the opening remark, GBUR chairman, Mabasi Sindano Albert on the next day, briefed participants about what is expected from them as they serve their term as leaders in GBU.

The chairman told participants that in order to build a solid structure an architect must have both a sound foundation and a vision of what the building will look like once completed. And from the passage in 1corinthians 3.10-15 the chairman explained how concerning matters of ministry, there is a foundation laid by Christ himself as the chief builder, which is the great commission as read in Mathew 28.19-20; from that foundation GBUR has drawn its vision “for every student and graduate to be an agent of godly transformation in church and society” to achieve that vision we reach, equip and mobilize. The role of a leader in GBU is to find out how to advance that vision; nothing more nothing less.

The chairman also emphasized on what it takes to be a good leader, here he underlined the difference between character and charisma; and concluded that leaders should draw their charisma on character, since our business is to impact people not to impress them, and you can impress people from a distance but you can impact them only upfront.

Throughout this training, GBUR staff took turns to explain GBUR ministry while also exchanging with participants about both what is going on in the ministry and what needs to be done to improve. GBUR staff explained GBUR ministry’s philosophy, principles of action, ministry overview and the profile of an agent of godly transformation as dreamed in the vision of GBUR “for every student and graduate to be an agent of Godly Transformation in church and society”

The dreamed agent of godly transformation is none other than the disciple Jesus Christ displayed in Mathew 28.19-20; this is someone who models  scriptural ministry in the church and integrity in the market place. Scriptural ministry through sound biblical truth from the pulpit, discipleship (reproduction) as a priority, and servant leadership. Integrity in the market place through excellence in his work (excellence is based on the fear of God not his boss), meeting the standards set for the work, technical mastery of his work, respects of work regulations and anti-corruption values.

And it has been emphasized that leaders in GBU must always have in minds the agent of godly transformation dreamed about, not programs. Programs should always be means to create the dreamed agent of godly transformation.
