In the Gospels, God’s power worked through Jesus to do miracles while God’s power worked with others in the Bible. Jesus’s miracles were not like the illusion of magicians in the ancient classical world. Jesus’s miracles were selfless. Jesus is the most reasonable explanation for the supernatural power of God on earth. Because God exists, miracles exist. The universe and life are miraculous effects of God. Christ’s miracles especially His resurrection reflected God’s creative power. Jesus revealed that those who hear His voice believe because of His miracles, but those who do not hear His voice do not believe His miracles. This message is a plea to reconsider the extraordinary nature of Jesus’s miracles and the compelling character of those wonders today.

When Christians offer the Gospel, they offer change for those who know they are missing something. The centurion Cornelius was a devout, God-fearing man who prayed to God and gave generous to those in need. However, he was not saved yet — not without Christ. Cornelius saw an angel who instructed him to call for Simon Peter in Joppa. When Peter arrive, he proclaimed the Gospel in way for which Christians can learn to share their faith. Cornelius and his household believed, and Peter gave them a very specific command to receive the forgiveness of sins in Jesus’s name. This message will present the basic of proclaiming to Gospel to others.

Christ gave the ultimate sacrifice. He is the high priest. In the Bible, the old sacrificial system of worship foreshadowed the time of Christ. In the New Testament, the sacrificial worship had become spiritual from the old physical sacrifices. This lesson examines the significance of every Christian in that life of worship according to the Bible. Christians now have a mission offering spiritual sacrifices that are pleasing to God. Christians often overlook these sacrifices. This message solely rests upon the Bible as its authority. This lesson encourages believers to become a living sacrifice in one’s reasonable service to God.

Christians cannot hide their joy in worship. “Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise” (Jas 5:16b). Christians find joy in the midst of trials and struggles. Our faith shines in conflict and persecution. The joy of the Christian hope cannot remain hidden. In culmination of the Scriptures about joy, we look to the natural reaction of thanksgiving and joyous worship. For Christians to have joy, they must experience the faith and hope of the Gospel. This message encourages Christians to increase their joy through a living hope and demonstrate that joy through worship to God.

The Christian joy must confuse the world and can only make sense if Christians have good news. Jesus rejoices when the Lost are saved. There is more joy in heaven over one who repents than ninety-nine who remain righteous who need no repentance. The Christian’s response to repentance much also be joy. The Gospel that believers proclaim is good news — a message of joy. This lesson will draw observations from how Jesus taught the Samaritan woman. Jesus made observations about people and what they were looking for. Christ concluded that the harvest is white and ready for harvest. People still want to hear the message of joy.

The angels rejoiced on the night of Jesus’s birth. The wise men rejoiced to find the infant Jesus. Why? Many awaited the coming Christ – the King and Son of God. The Scriptures reveal that Jesus endured the cross for the joy set before Him. When Christians know the victory of Christ over death, they find a deep
joy. They see that Jesus’s resurrection is the beginning and hope of the future resurrection and glorification of all true believers. On the last night of Jesus’s life, Jesus encouraged His disciples that they will sorrow when He leaves and yet rejoice when He returns. Even in the midst of sorrow, Christians have joy. Have you found joy in the life of Christ?

For many, this week there will be a night of children knocking on their neighbors’ doors looking for tricks or treats (though they will likely be more interested in the treats). In the Bible, we are presented with two who will be knocking on the door to our hearts: the devil and Jesus. One is the father of lies and the other is the Son of God. In this lesson, the words “Trick or Treat” are made into a short acrostic laying out the ways that the devil wants to trick us and the treats that God has to offer to us. Will you be treated by the Lord or will you be tricked by the devil?

The apostle Paul instructs us that the spirit of God is not a spirit of fear but a spirit of power, love and self-control (II Timothy 1:7). We will explore what fear is, how it effects us, and how to overcome it. Fear is not something unique to one person, but something we have all dealt with at least once. Even the bravest among us have felt fear, they simply have not allowed it to alter their actions. Paul shares the blueprint with Timothy to ensure he does not allow fear to deter him from sharing the Gospel.

In this lesson, we will explore where our power comes from, what does it mean to love, and why we need self-control. If you have any questions about this or any other lesson, please find us on Facebook or email us at: dean.road@deanroadchurchofchrist.org

Those who were not Jews glorified and rejoiced for hearing the Word of God, because Christ would come as a light to the nations. Where is the joy in the Christian faith? Do Christians struggle to maintain this joy? Do believers lose focus upon the Gospel that gives joy? Peter noted a number of things that give an inexpressible joy to Christians. This message will point out these revelations. Those who heard the Gospel were baptized immediately and went away rejoicing. The Good News of Christ causes great joy in believers.

Blessed are those who know the power of the Gospel for they can destroy everything exalted against the knowledge of God (2 Cor 10:3–6). This message encourages Christians to approach boldly the world with the Gospel. Christians must understand the world through the cross of Christ. Paul revealed that he came proclaiming nothing except Christ crucified. The Gospel message undermines all other ideologies and supposed wisdom of men. The Bible reveals that God’s wisdom destroys the wisdom and power of men. For this reason, Christians must contemplate the implications of the Gospel and proclaim boldly the truth. Only with the Gospel on the heart can people reason truthfully. With Christ, science makes sense. The cause of the universe makes sense. The ultimate meaning of life makes sense. Moral absolutes make sense. The existence of laws of logic make sense. Think from the cross of Christ and the implications of God coming in the flesh. The Scriptures reveal that all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in Christ.
