[Lesson plan for Discipling the Nations March 3, 2014]

1. Have a volunteer read Luke 4:25-30.

a. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
b. What was Jesus saying here that made the Jews in the synagogue so angry with Him?
c. Personal Application: Why is it easier to focus on our differences with others rather than our similarities? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your relatives states: “Why would God send Elijah to a Gentile rather than to a woman of Israel? Was this an outreach tactic, or wasn’t there any women of faith in Israel?” How would you respond to your relative?

2. Have a volunteer read John 12:23-26.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
b. Where does Jesus want His followers to be? What does He mean when He says that where He is, there will His servants be?
c. Personal Application: What do you love about your life? What do you hate about life in this world? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your neighbors states, “I thought God wanted us to be happy in this life. Life is a gift from God to enjoy and savor. Why would He say that we should hate our life instead of love it?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

3. Have a volunteer read Luke 10:30-37.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. Is there any person or group of people that you wouldn’t want to help under any circumstances? Why?.
c. Personal Application: Was there ever a time when you didn’t help someone in need? What reasons did you give for not helping? Looking back, would you have done anything differently? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your friends states, “There are a lot of people in this world that aren’t SDA or even Christians that seem to have a heart of gold when it come to helping other people. What do you make of that?” How would you respond to your friend?

4. Have a volunteer read Acts 1:7,8.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. How effective is your witness to those around you? To those of other races, countries, or cultures?
c. Personal Application: How can you help people in the uttermost parts of the world? Share your thoughts and be practical.
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.
