The New Believer’s Sabbath School Class

One Sabbath our New Believer's SS class had class at a park by the beach, followed by a fellowship lunch picnic.

A few seasoned Adventists think of Sabbath School as a place where they come to spar and debate with their fellow Adventist friends about the 144,000 being a symbolic or literal number, or whether Jesus came with a pre-lapsarian nature or post-lapsarian nature. However, that is not the purpose of Sabbath School. The purpose of Sabbath school is to introduce people to Jesus.

The Sabbath school should be one of the greatest instrumentalities, and the most effectual, in bringing souls to Christ. (Ellen […]

1. Where we are today. How long has it been since God made clear the essence of the gospel? Did He explain the gospel to Adam and Eve in the garden? How? Could you explain the gospel in 25 words or less? We are saved by faith, by the grace of God. Is that the essence of the gospel? Did James understand that the gospel of grace is the gospel of […]

1. Words with power. One of my favorite texts growing up in Sabbath school is this week’s memory text containing these words, “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” I repeated those words until they were embedded in my heart. But what did they mean? What is an effectual fervent prayer? Do only righteous people have the ability to pray such a prayer? That kind […]
