PART III "Living in the End Times"
Lesson 9 "Panorama of Life"
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
“What happens to people when they die?” Because my mother was prone to being sick, I constantly worried about that question. Sometimes I felt despair, and sometimes I would avoid thinking about it altogether. However, I finally found the answer within the Bible.
In this section, let’s study where people come from and where they’re going.
Lesson 10 "The Greatest Project in History"
Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.' (Matthew 28:18-20)
Human history has seen a number of people and nations that held the vision of world domination. All of their attempts, however, ended in failure. Today, corporation aim for world domination through economic advancement. Jesus Christ's project (the Great Commission) is greater than any person or nation in its scale, motive, and influence.
Lesson 11 "Biblical Stewardship"
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10)
Let's study the meaning of the word stewardship as it is portrayed in the Bible.
Lesson 12 "Evangelism in the End Times"
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourageーwith great patience and careful instruction. (2 Timothy 4:2)
There is only one way for the Great Commission of the Lord to be realized in a concrete fashion. That is, personal evangelism by the believers.
