Discipleship and Mission
This spring, our lessons survey several calls to ministry and the expectations of those called. Several of the lessons highlight calls to service as recorded in the Gospels of Mark and Luke. We explore Paul's call to ministry, with special attention to the Roman church. On Easter Sunday, we examine Matthew's account of the Resurrection. The student book writer is Taylor Mills; the teacher book writer is Gary Thompson.
Call to Discipleship
Luke 14:7-14 | Mark 1:16-20; Luke 14:25-33 | Luke 15:11-24 | Luke 19:1-10
The first unit offers four lessons and highlights several aspects of what it means to be called by Jesus as a disciple. They include hospitality, counting the cost, reaching the lost, and salvation for all people.
Call to Ministry
Matthew 4:12-22 | Matthew 10:1-15 | Matthew 26:1-13 | Matthew 28:1-15 | Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 1:6-8
The five lessons in this unit explore the diverse ways in which Jesus' disciples were challenged to exercise their call to ministry: by witnessing to the gospel message; acting with loving kindness; sharing the Resurrection story; and making new disciples through preaching, teaching, and baptism.
The Spread of the Gospel
Romans 3:21-31 | Romans 8:1-14 | Romans 11:11-24 | Romans 12:1-8
The four lessons in this unit begin with Paul's introduction of himself to the Jewish and Gentile Christians living in Rome. Paul affirms that the call to salvation is to Israel and to Gentiles. This call to salvation is a call to a life in the Spirit and involves a new life in Christ.
