23 Sep Quarter Three Lesson Four

Overcoming through Union with Christ One of the most amazing things that believers experience is union with Jesus Christ. We feel that we are one with Him, united to Him, joined forever with Jesus. This has a huge impact in the way we live our lives, and the way we fight our battles. We discover that through being one with Jesus we have victory over Satan. After all, Jesus rose from the dead triumphant over all sin, over Satan, over death and hell and the grave, victorious over everything. Therefore, as we are one with Him, we overcome too. What great news!

25 Sep Quarter Three Lesson Five

This lesson continues to discuss the theme of our overcoming through union with Jesus. What an awesome thought to consider, that we overcome sin not through our own efforts but rather by being united with Jesus. Now that’s different than any self-help book, any spiritual life-change guru, any life-coach, will ever teach you. It’s different than any addiction/recovery “ministry” or any 12-step group will ever explain. That’s why the gospel is what God has used for thousands of years to set men and women free from the bondage of sin. Come and see how union with Jesus, purchased for you at the cross, can change your life!

25 Sep Quarter Three Lesson Six

Overcoming our Flesh The believer has competing desires. In his heart he wants to do right, to follow Christ wholeheartedly and to live for God. But in his flesh he finds desires to do wrong. The Bible knows this, of course, and presents to us a wrong solution and a right solution, and in this lesson we take a look at both. It should not surprise us that the gospel is the remedy for this problem. It seems the gospel has the solution for all problems in life, and indeed it does. Come and study the gospel with us, and find how it relates to this problem of the flesh that all believers have.

25 Sep Quarter Three Lesson Seven

The Gospel and Life-change How does believing in Jesus lead to actual life change? When we believe the gospel we receive the Holy Spirit and He begins to live the life of Jesus through us. He begins to remove sin and create holiness in our lives. This happens progressively, over time. God works through His Spirit and His Word, and His body (the church) to help shape us in the image of Jesus Christ. So as we grow we become more like Him. This is the power of the gospel; it not only forgives our sin it changes our lives.

25 Sep Quarter Three Lesson Eight

The Gospel and False Teaching False teaching hinders our spiritual development. It stunts our growth, leaves us languishing, and prevents maturity. The gospel is the antidote to false teaching. Not to oversimply, but the truth is that as long as we hold fast to the gospel we will not be susceptible to false teaching. This is the point Paul is making in Galatians 1. The gospel is our “plumb-line” by which we measure any teaching we receive. If it isn’t centered in the gospel, it’s false teaching. That’s about as plain as it can be said. So come study this lesson and see how the gospel produces well-nourished, healthy, mature people who are becoming more and more like Jesus.

Through the cross we overcome the world. Come and study how the crucifixion is not only the focal point of the Bible, not only how Jesus saved the world, but also how we overcome and be victorious.

25 Sep Quarter Three Lesson Twelve

Put on the full armor of God! A solider cannot win in the battle unless he is properly clothed for the fight. Just the same, believers are told to put on the full armor of God. The reason is so that we can stand against the temptations of Satan. This lesson shows us how the gospel is woven throughout the armor of God, and how Jesus, Himself is actually the armor of God. With Jesus surrounding us we are fully clothed for battle and can expect to live life victoriously, dressed in the full armor of God.
