09: The Outgrowth of Revival – Teaching Plan
avatar

Key Thought : Reformation is a change in our thinking whereby we see sin as it is and surrender any practice, habit, or attitude that is not in harmony with God’s will.

[Teaching plan for The Outgrowth of Revival August 26, 2013]

1. Have a volunteer read 2 Corinthians 7:8-12.

a. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
b. What is the difference between Godly sorrow and worldly sorrow?
c. Personal Application : How hard is it to accept reproof and to change one’s ways or habits or thinking? Share.
d. Case Study : One of your relatives states: Premarital sex, babies out of wedlock, living together, smoking, drinking; it’s like people today have no moral compass. They claim you’re judging them if you say anything. It seems like a change of thinking is the only solution to repentance..” How would you respond to your relative?

2. Have a volunteer read Revelation 2:1-6.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. The Midianites were known for idol worship, multiple wives, and sexual immorality. Why is it so important to God that His people hate these things?
c. Personal Application : What was it like when you first came to Jesus? Is it the same today? How do we maintain that first love? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study : One of your friends states, “I used to have a great zeal for the gospel and truth, but now I seem to have settled down. I don’t know if it’s because I gained more knowledge, or if I have just become comfortable in the church and have lost that zeal.” How would you respond to your friend?

3. Have a volunteer read Revelation 14:6,7,12

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
b. Since the three angel’s messages have been preached for over 150 years, how can revival be awakened in God’s people today?
c. Personal Application : What reform has God been working on in your life that needs changing? Does revival come before reformation or vice cersa? Share.
d. Case Study : One of your neighbors states, “What does it mean to fear God and give glory to Him? What reform is indicated by the call to worship Him who made the earth, sea, heavens, and all that is in them?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

4. Have a volunteer read Romans 1:16,17.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. Why does Paul write that God is revealed from faith to faith? Does this indicate a growing in faith of the believer? How does one grow in faith?
c. Personal Application : Are you feeding your faith in prayer, Bible study, and sharing with others?> What should you improve on? Share your thoughts.
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.
