Awareness

Today Abe and Kyle split the lessons, as is our 3rd Sunday tradition at Waynesville, and today’s subject was “Awareness”. Abe took the first lesson and focused on examples from life and from the bible on who was and wasn’t being very aware of the events in their lives. Kyle took the second lesson and talked about what it means to be a master in our physical or spiritual lives and all the stages below that in regard to being aware.

Recordings of both lessons are below:

Teaching the Gospel

 Mark 1:14-15 (NKJV) – “Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

Abe’s follow-up lessons from last week’s series on “The Gospel” continue today on how we are to be “Teaching the Gospel” to others. There are more ways to teach than to stand in front of a class…

Recordings of both lessons are below.

The Gospel

Mark 1:1-3“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.   As it is written in the Prophets: “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.  The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.'”

Mark 1:14-15“Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

Recordings of both lessons are below, followed by outlines for both lessons. Listen, study, prove, learn, grow, and teach!

Lesson One:

The Gospel

People who believe in the bible spend a great deal of time talking about the gospel.

  • The Greek word for gospel is euggelion.
  • It as most of you know means simply good news, good tidings or good message.
  • As used in the New Testament, it is the good news about Christ.
  • It is used 77 times in the New Testament.
  • As we study this word, we can learn much about what it means, when it was first proclaimed and why it is so important to us today.
  • Facts of the gospel explained in many places including 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4“Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you–unless you believed in vain.  For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,  and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures”
