Lesson 10: June 2-8

‘Ye are the light of the world’

 

MEMORY VERSE: ‘Ye are the light of the world.  A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.’  Matthew 5:14.

LESSON AIM: To show that it is our duty to reflect the light of Jesus in a dark world.

 

Introduction

 

‘The church is God’s appointed agency for the salvation of men. It was organised for service, and its mission is to carry the gospel to the world. From the beginning it has been God’s plan that through His church shall be reflected to the world His fullness and His sufficiency. The members of the church, those whom He has called out of darkness into His marvellous light, are to show forth His glory. The church is the repository of the riches of the grace of Christ; and through the church will eventually be made manifest, even to “the principalities and powers in heavenly places,” the final and full display of the love of God. Ephesians 3:10.’  Acts of the Apostles, page 9.

 

‘Declare His glory’

 

1. As human beings made in the image of God what is our purpose?  1 Chronicles 16:23; Psalm 92:2.

NOTE: ‘From the beginning God has wrought through His people to bring blessing to the world. To the ancient Egyptian nation God made Joseph a fountain of life. Through the integrity of Joseph, the life of that whole people was preserved. Through Daniel, God saved the life of all the wise men of Babylon. And these deliverances are as object lessons; they illustrate the spiritual blessings offered to the world through connection with the God whom Joseph and Daniel worshiped. Everyone in whose heart Christ abides, everyone who will show forth His love to the world, is a worker together with God for the blessing of humanity. As he receives from the Saviour grace to impart to others, from his whole being flows forth the tide of spiritual life.’  Acts of the Apostles, page 13.

  

2. How does the Bible express the reason for the life we have been given? 1 Chronicles 16:24; I Peter 2:9.

NOTE: ‘Many of the believers to whom Peter addressed his letters, were living in the midst of heathen, and much depended on their remaining true to the high calling of their profession. The apostle urged upon them their privileges as followers of Christ Jesus. “Ye are a chosen generation,” he wrote, “a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.’ Acts of the Apostles, page 521.
