06: Victory Over Evil Forces – Teaching Plan
avatar

Key Thought : The weakest soul will be victorious as they seek God’s power to overcome temptation through faith.

 

[Teaching plan for Victory Over Evil Forces November 5, 2012]

1. Have a volunteer read Ephesians 1:18-23.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. From the Bible, what examples do we have of followers of Christ getting victory over the devil?
C. Personal Application: What mighty power does God work to those who believe that Paul refers to here? How has that power been manifested in your life?
D. Case Study: One of your relatives states, “Didn’t Jesus make Peter the head of the church as the first pope? The catholic, universal church is under his leadership and endowed with God’s power over all earthly and heavenly powers.” How would you respond to your relative?

2. Have a volunteer read Romans 8:34-39.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. If Christ’s love for us is so great, why does He allow us to be persecuted, imprisoned, and killed? Share your thoughts.
C. Personal Application: How can we take the promises and words of encouragement to heart so that we don’t doubt or get discouraged when troubled times come to us?
D. Case Study: One of your friends states, “Why does Christ have to make intercession for us? I thought He gained the victory for us at the cross and is now seated on the right hand of God in heaven.” How is your friend correct and incorrect in his understanding of the new birth experience? How would you respond to your friend?

3. Have a volunteer read I Peter 5:6-10.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. Why do we have to suffer a while in order to make us perfect?”
C. Personal Application: How wary and aware are you daily of the spiritual warfare the devil is taking against you personally? How do you guard yourself? Share.
D. Case Study: One of your neighbors states, “If you don’t have afflictions and everything seems to be going well, is that an indication that we are on the devil’s side because if we are on God’s side, we would be targeted by the devil?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

4. Have a volunteer read Mark 6:7, 12-13.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. Do we see healings and casting out of devils today? Why not? Is it because of a lack of faith, lack of power, not believing demons exist or cause the problems? Share.
C. Personal Application: Are part of your witness, how often do you focus on asking people to repent? What is our witnessing focus?
D. 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.

(Note: “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.” MH p. 149)
