General Introduction

 

‘The truths of God’s word are not mere sentiments, but the utterances of the Most High. He who makes these truths a part of his life becomes in every sense a new creature. He is not given new mental powers, but the darkness that through ignorance and sin has clouded the understanding is removed. The words, “A new heart also will I give you” mean, A new mind will I give you. This change of heart is always attended by a clear conception of Christian duty, an understanding of truth.’ Counsels to Parents, Teachers & Students, page 452.

 

‘It is the prerogative of God to command; it is the duty of man to obey. Yet nothing is forced upon any soul. The honour of duty is conferred upon him as a son of God, an heir of heaven. He is to labour for God in disinterested [unbiased], true-hearted, honourable service. And in obedience to all His commandments, a spirit of love for God is revealed.’ Signs of the Times, March 10, 1898.

 

‘During His ministry, Jesus had kept constantly before the disciples the fact that they were to be one with Him in His work for the recovery of the world from the slavery of sin. When He sent forth the Twelve and afterward the Seventy, to proclaim the kingdom of God, He was teaching them their duty to impart to others what He had made known to them. In all His work, He was training them for individual labour, to be extended as their numbers increased, and eventually to reach to the uttermost parts of the earth. The last lesson He gave His followers was that they held in trust for the world the glad tidings of salvation.  When the time came for Christ to ascend to His Father, He led the disciples out as far as Bethany. Here He paused, and they gathered about Him. With hands outstretched in blessing, as if in assurance of His protecting care, He slowly ascended from among them. “It came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.”’ Acts of the Apostles, page 31.

 

COMPILER’S NOTE:  The end result of our obedience to God is that we shall be witnesses for Him of the triumphant, transforming power of the Gospel in human lives. When this work is complete and the opportunities have been given to the world, then He will come again, victorious. These lessons are to show us the duties He has laid on us which will assist the progress of this work in ourselves and others.
