   Hope: The Christian's Anchor
   Romans 8:18-25
Sunday School,  October 14, 2012
Christians do not have an "I hope so" kind of faith. Our hope is sure and steadfast, founded on the nature of God himself, and the sure word of his promises. Christian hope is bound up in the future as it anticipates the eternal life we have in Christ. As a result, hope powerfully alters our lives in the present.

   Witnessing the Good News
   1 Timothy 3:14-15; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; Mark 16:15
Sunday School,  October 7, 2012
The Dead Sea is called such because there is no outlet and yet it is saturated with rich mineral deposits.  The Body of Christ (the Church), though rich in many ways, is evangelistically dysfunctional because it stopped giving out what it had received.  When Christ saw that His church had no evangelistic outlet, He threatened to remove her lamp (Revelation 2:5), indicating that the members would lose their light – forfeit its place of light-bearing.

   Progressive Sanctification
   1 Thessalonians 5:23
Sunday School,  September 30, 2012
All true believers who have born again by a supernatural work of God ought to manifest it by growing in holiness and righteousness. The Spirit of God works sanctification in us through love. Sanctification is a long process, and the war for holiness continues until death. Sanctification brings glory to God.

   Spiritual Gifts
   1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 27-31; Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 4:7-11; 1 Peter 4:10-11
Sunday School,  September 23, 2012
God has equipped every believer with one or more gifts to be used in connection with the functioning of the local church. No church ministry can function without them. Since God has designed and distributed these spiritual gifts to function within the church family, we should be aware of what they are and how they are to be used for God’s glory (1 Corinthians 12:1). Today’s lesson cannot be anything more than a general overview considering our time element.

   Dealing with Temptation
   Various Texts
Sunday School,  September 9, 2012
A new Christian can easily approach the Christian life with unrealistic expectations. We must be careful to teach young believers about the reality of the life-long battle against temptation that every believer will face. We must equip believers to understand and resist temptation.

   Prayer and the Local Church
   Hebrews 10:19-25; Matthew 6:9-13; 18:20; Acts 1:4, 14;
Sunday School,  September 2, 2012
Missionaries, when they are home, often thank the church for praying for them because they are very dependent on praying churches for effectiveness of their ministries in other countries. Many church members fail to recognize that prayer is one of the most important things they can do when they gather together. Some even think that their individual prayers are just as effective as corporate prayer. While their prayers may be effective, they cannot be obedient and avoid gathering together for prayer as did the early church as noted in the book of Acts and in the epistles.

   Following Christ Together: The Body of Christ & Church Attendance
   Acts 2:41-42
Sunday School,  August 26, 2012
Our lessons have already stressed the corporate dimension of the life a new Christian. The Bible nowhere presents the Christian life as “just me and my Bible.” Instead, Christian vitality and obedience to Christ depends upon our being connected with a properly organized body of believers or local church.

   The Place of Prayer in the Christian Life and in the Church
   Jeremiah 33:3; Psalm 109:21, 22; Hebrews 11:6
Sunday School,  August 12, 2012
Prayer is one of the greatest privileges given to God’s people, that of being able to commune with God. It is the conscious experience of humbly coming face to face with God, communicating with Him and declaring our dependence on Him. This is a two part series. Today we will be looking at prayer in the broad perspective for all believers and then narrow it down in the second part to the local church in prayer.

   Hearing God: Bible Preaching and Reading
   1 Thessalonians 2:13
Sunday School,  August 5, 2012
The Bible points to itself as a necessary instrument to spiritual vitality. Therefore all Christians must attend to hearing God’s Word. The primary way we receive God’s Word is in attending to its public ministry at our church. The second way we receive God’s Word is in our own private reading and meditation on it.

Sunday School,  July 22, 2012
The Westminster Shorter Confession states that the chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. This is stated because it is what God’s Word commands us to do. Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

   Christ's Call to Discipleship
   John 6:66, John 13:35; 15:8; Matthew 12:49-50; 28:19-20; 2 Timothy 2:2
Sunday School,  June 17, 2012
The word "disciple" refers to a learner or pupil. It is used 238 times in the Gospels and another 28 times in the book of Acts. It is a word greatly misunderstood because of those who tend to make it mean whatever they want it to mean. Jesus assumed we would be sharing our faith with others (Matthew 28:19). In our faithfulness to this task, He has asked us to MAKE DISCIPLES. It is our responsibility to take that which the Lord has given to us and to share it with others, that they also would become disciples (II Timothy 2:2). One of the greatest aspects of being a disciple is to be with Christ and to become like our Master (Romans 8:29; Ephesians 5:1; Philippians 2:5). This is the first and most important step to be used of God for His glory.
