How is God going to get the message of the gospel to every people, tribe, tongue, and nation?
Don’t fret…he has a plan. And that plan centers on the church. And that plan involves local churches sending our willing people to share the gospel with the nations.
In a sense, it is quite simple.
If you have thought that someone in your life was so far from God that they could not ever be saved…make sure you spend extra time in Acts 9 this week and remember that with God all things are possible.
Here is the article referenced on page 93 of your adult leaders guide.
God seems to be pretty serious about getting the gospel message to all peoples. There is no group or people or ethnicity that is excluded from God’s heart. That is a big part of the lesson this week from Acts 10.
As you will see in the video, I offer my own outline for the text that we are studying this week. Here it is in writing:
- Believe God is at Work
- Be an obedient Christian
- Know your Bible
- Explain and Expect
I also give you an exhortation to study and teach the text rather than the lesson plan. An easy way to do that is to read the text in class several times. You could read it from 2-3 different translations, and then ask the following questions of the text or of different sections of the text:
- What do I learn about God?
- What do I learn about people?
- Do I have any questions about this passage?
- Do I identify with someone in this passage?
- Is there something I should do because of this passage?
