.June 26, 2021

1. Have a volunteer read Romans 8:1.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
  2. Why should this text give us joy and a feeling of gratitude?
  3. Personal Application: How does God forgiving you help you in dealing with others who have sinned against you? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your relatives states, “There is no more condemnation when we accept Christ as our Savior. So if we accept Christ, we cannot be lost. It’s as simple as that.” How would you respond to your friend?

2. Have a volunteer read Ephesians 3:17-19.

  1. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
  2. What is the difference between joy and happiness?
  3. Personal Application: Are there things you need to change that may be hampering your experience in the fullness of God? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your friends states, “Why do we need a new heart? What does that mean anyway? What kind of change would take place with a new heart?” How would you respond to your friend?

3. Have a volunteer read John 11:25,26.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
  2. What does it mean that those that believe in Christ will live even if he dies?
  3. Personal Application: What does this promise do for us now as contrasted to the future? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your relatives states: “Do you believe in deathbed conversions? Should a person wait to accept Christ until the last moment after living the life they wanted to not according with God’s wishes?“ How would you respond to your relative?
    (Note: We are told that there are “few genuine deathbed conversions” and even if they do accept Christ at the last moment, “what a poor maimed sacrifice they bring to the Lord.”)

4. Have a volunteer read Matthew 28:19,20..

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
  2. Why does being a Christian mean more than claiming the title?
  3. Personal Application: Have you been doing anything to share Christ and His word? Could you do more? What can you do to have a greater role in this work? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: Think of one person who needs to hear a message from this week’s lesson. Tell the class what you plan to do this week to share with them.

(Truth that is not lived, that is not imparted, loses its life-giving power, its healing virtue. Its blessings can be retained only as it is shared.”Ministry of Healing, p. 148).
