EVANGELIZING, THE CHRISTIAN CHARGE

Lesson: EVANGELIZING, THE CHRISTIAN CHARGE
TEXT: Matt. 28:18-20
MEMORY VERSE: Acts 1:8: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about Me everywhere – in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria and to the ends of the earth.

A. INTRODUCTION:
The word for ‘good news’ is ‘evangel’ and the herald is an ‘evangelist’ doing the art of evangelizing. The Gospels’ writers, (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) were ‘evangelists’ and their message is the ‘evangel’ because it is based on faith or dependence upon the success of someone else, (in our case, Jesus) for the believers. (Jehovah) God ties everything good from Him for mankind to the preaching of Jesus Christ and His blood sacrifice. (cf. Heb.9:12-14,27; 10:3-7).

B. BODY OF THE LESSON:
1. How is the Gospel of Christ good news? (cf. John 3:16-17; 13:34-35)
2. The Gospel of Christ is carried out in the spirit of ‘what would be good for me, I do for you.’ Discuss. (cf.Matt.7:12; Rom.13:8-10).
3. How can the word of God become flesh again in our generation?
(cf. John 1:14; 17:18)
4. Why is God and heaven interested in Jesus’ self sacrifice? (cf. Heb.9:12-14; 10:3-7).

C. CONCLUSION:
Evangelizing has one goal: removing the barrier between man and God, His maker, called ‘sin’. This can only be possible in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ resulting in peace with God and fellow persons. (cf. Eph. 2:14) Parents with sincere love for their children tell them what to do before leaving them at death. Similarly, Christ, our beloved elder Brother and Saviour also told us what to do before He left us for heaven – EVANGELIZING.
