January 3 – Called to Proclaim

Alternate Title – Jesus On a Mission

Bible Lesson: Luke 4:14-22 (KJV)


The key verses:
Luke 4:18-19 (KJV) - "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord."

What shall we learn from this lesson:

Years ago, I heard a sermon in which the preacher said for us to be careful in asking God for strength in handling our problems. He said when we ask for strength, we may receive even more problems. Living through these additional problems will make us stronger. He compared it to a body builder who wants to build up his muscles. The usual technique is to lift more weights and endure more exercise and pain to build up muscles.

Our reference text begins after two significant events in the life of Jesus. First, He was baptized at which time He was anointed and empowered by the Holy Spirit to fulfill His role as the Messiah. Secondly, He endured 40 days of being tempted in the wilderness by Satan.

Jesus was strengthened by successfully enduring the temptations thrown at him. As a result, He was filled with the Holy Spirit and strong in spirit when He returned to Galilee to begin this part of His ministry.

He went to the local synagogue on the Sabbath day in Nazareth where He had been brought up. No doubt some who were present at the worship service had seen Jesus mature from year to year. When it came time to read some of God's word, He stood up to read. He was given the scroll of Isaiah 61:1-2.

This Scripture He read describes the actions of the "anointed One"; the one anointed by God to deliver His peoplethe Messiah. After He had completed the reading He proclaimed the Scripture was directly referring to Him (Luke 4:21). In essence, He was saying that He was the Messiah proclaimed by the prophet Isaiah.

January 10 – Called to Significance

Alternate Title – Called to Follow

Alternate Title #2 – Obeying Jesus


Bible Lesson: Luke 5:1-11 (KJV)


The key verse:
Luke 5:10b (KJV) - "Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men."

What shall we learn from this lesson:

The fish has an important significance to Christianity. Many Christians proudly display the fish symbol on the bumper of their car, on the mantle in their home, and in other places. Representatively it says, "I am a Christian."

In the early first century, this was a secret symbol to let other Christians know who was also a Christian and was even used to mark where meetings would be held. This was especially important during the period of oppression and brutality of Christians by the Romans.

This symbol reminds us of Jesus and His challenge to the disciples to be "fishers of men" (Luke 5:10). It also reminds us of two miracles performed by Christ involving fish: the miracle of feeding 5000 with two fishes and five loaves of bread, and the miracle of feeding 4000 with seven loaves of bread and a fish.

The lesson for today also involves fish and starts with the events surrounding the first disciples Jesus selected. Simon Peter, and James and John, the sons of Zebedee, heeded Jesus' calling and obeyed willingly to follow Him into an uncertain future.

Peter had already had a personal experience with the powers of Jesus when He had healed his mother-in-law of a high fever (Luke 4:38-39). Peter knew this was no ordinary man. No doubt, Jesus as a teacher and healer was becoming more and more well known.

Peter, a professional fisherman, had just experienced an unproductive night of fishing with nets. He had caught nothing (Luke 5:5). Those of us who have done a lot of fishing know the feeling of fishing all day and not getting a strike and not catching a single fish.

In a situation like that, not catching any fish would be disappointing but we would probably shrug it off and hope for better luck the next time. However, if your livelihood depends on how many fish you catch, the success, or lack thereof, of a fishing trip would take on a much greater and more serious meaning.

We can only imagine that Peter and the others were very tired, having worked through the night without any luck. They had ended the trip and were in the process of washing their nets in preparation for storing them. Jesus asked Peter to take his boat out again into a little deeper water and to lower his nets.

Peter's faith and respect for Jesus took over and He did as requested. He did so even though he should know more about fishing than this carpenter. Surprisingly to Peter, so many fish were caught in the nets that they began to tear (Luke 5:6).

He called to his partners to help and soon the two boats they had were so full of fish that they were on the verge of sinking (Luke 5:7). Especially to a professional fisherman, this was surely a miracle and Jesus was surely a miracle maker.

Peter did not think of himself as worthy to be in the presence of such a godly and powerful man (Luke 5:8).

Upon the power of this miracle, Jesus said to Peter, James and John, sons of Zebedee, to not be afraid and to come with Him and He will make them fishers of men (Luke 5:10).

In that time, it was an honor to be a student and disciple of a Rabbi. They obviously considered Jesus as their religious teacher and mastertheir rabbi. As soon as they landed the boats, they left everything behind and followed Jesus (Luke 5:11). Their confidence and faith in Him is an example for us. We should be faithful enough in the Lord to leave our sinful life behind and follow His direction.

January 17 – Called to Heal

Alternate Title – Called in Authority

Alternate Title #2 – Jesus Heals and Forgives


Bible Lesson: Mark 2:1-12 (KJV)


The key verse:
Mark 2:9 (KJV) - "Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?"

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

Jesus is known for teaching lessons with the use of parables. The parable of the Good Samaritan and the parable of the Prodigal Son are just two which come to mind. His life on earth, as recorded in the Gospels, gives us true stories with which we can use to teach others ... just as Christ used parables. The lesson for today concerns such a story.

The Scripture for the lesson takes place in the town of Capernaum. He had gained notoriety in the town and the surrounding region because of His previous teaching (Mark 1:22) and healing there. He healed those who were suffering from many types of serious problems (Mark 1:34) including those who were demon-possessed and even Peter's mother-in-law who was suffering from a high fever (Mark 1:31).

We could consider Capernaum as His base of operations during this time. When the people heard He was back home in Capernaum they crowded into the house where He was to hear Him teach the word.

Because of faith in Jesus, four men risked cutting through the roof of the house to lower their friend through to be healed by Jesus (Mark 2:4). No doubt, they would have preferred to bring the man through the front door but there were too many people crowded into the house to allow easy access such as that (Mark 2:2 NIV).

Damaging someone's house like this could be dangerous and costly. They had to have complete faith that Jesus could and would heal the man.

In the lesson for today the story of the four men, who brought a paralyzed man to Jesus to be healed, is such an unusual story it is one which can be used to teach others. If we consider all that Jesus taught on this particular day, and all the people He may have healed that day, and all the other events of that day; this single incident is the one that stands out above the others.

But when the man was lowered into the room, Jesus did not immediately heal him. First, He forgave the man of his sins. Sinfulness is an affliction of the soul that we all suffer from whereas paralysis is an affliction of the body. Which affliction do you think is more important to God? Our spiritual health is of supreme value to the Lord because He is interested in saving our souls.

During the time frame of this event, Israel was still operating under the Mosaic law. There was a set procedure to follow if a person wanted to atone for his sins against God. This procedure involved making a sacrifice. But Jesus bypassed that whole process and forgave the sins of the man directly.

The teachers of religious law (scribes) that were present had thoughts of outrage because only God could forgive someone of their sins. They didn't realize Jesus was God ... God the Son.

Even though they did not protest openly, Jesus could read their thoughts and what was in their hearts. He said, "Why are you thinking these things? (Mark 2:8 NIV)." They did not understand who He was.

Jesus said to them, "Which is easier: to say to this paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’?" (Mark 2:9 NIV)

Perhaps they thought that Jesus could be taking the easy way out by claiming to forgive the man of his sins; knowing there was no way to prove or disprove the man's sins were actually forgiven. On the other hand, it would be easy to verify right then and there that He actually could heal the man of his serious paralysis.

Jesus openly made reference to their thoughts and told them He indeed had the power to forgive sins (Mark 2:10 NIV)

He met the challenge of their doubt by simply telling the paralyzed man to stand up and leave (Mark 2:11).

The man did so immediately which amazed and stunned those present (Mark 2:12).

This event also shows how important faith is to Jesus because He never once rebuked the men for damaging the roof of the house. Also, He didn't complain that they were interrupting His sermon (Mark 2:2 KJV). Instead, He healed the paralyzed man both spiritually and physically.

By using the plural "their faith" (Mark 2:5 KJV) the Scripture indicates it was more than just the paralyzed man who had faith in Jesus. Often times, we can get more accomplished when we act together with a common goal.

That's how it is with many endeavors. Often times when more than one person participates, we get better results. This is true in building a house and also building a ministry in the church. In the Body of Christthe Churchwe have many parts that function with their own purpose. Paul said:

"For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others." Romans 12:4-5 NIV

The example of these five men is still used 2000 years later to demonstrate how strong our faith should be. In this case, five men were used, but God may use many more of us to accomplish His will.

Most of us probably have had numerous cases where our behavior, and beliefs have been affected by the actions and words of others.

It may be that all five men had great confidence and faith in Jesus. We don't know. What really matters, in this case, is that some or all of them had such great faith in the healing powers of Jesus that it was worth cutting through the roof to get the paralyzed man to Christ. They threw caution to the wind to help the man get to Jesus.

This incident reminds us that in every person's life there will be a time that we will want something so badly that we will do almost anything to get it. In such a case, we may throw caution to the wind in pursuit of what we want. "We may go through the roof to get what we want."

In Jesus' life on earth, He demonstrated what it meant to have total and unconditional faith in God. He boldly and faithfully accepted the will of the Father for Him to suffer and die for humanity. He had to discount the pain and indignity He would have to suffer to be tortured to death for someone else's sin.

Even though He knew He would be resurrected after death, to endure the kind of pain that came with dying through torture required an unimaginable amount of love for us. He was God in the flesh being tortured and killed by sinners!

When the time came for Him to make this sacrifice He prayed, "yet not my will, but yours be done (Luke 22:42b NIV)."

This leads to the question, "How strong is our faith, and is it enduring?" What are we willing to do through faith?

Let's look at an example of a challenge of faith:

All of us are sinners, and for many of us, there is one sin that stands out above the others. This sin is the most persistent sin in our lifethe one we can't seem to stop doing. Is our faith strong enough for us to give up that sin and trust God to take care of us?

This question doesn't require a verbal answer ... it requires action. From this day forward, if we take action to stop or not take action will give us the answer to the question.

Living by faith is not something new to us. Our life in the United States is continuously based on faith in one thing or another.

When we get in our car and go through a fast-food drive-thru for a meal, we have faith that the food we buy will not kill us. When we sit in a chair to read the newspaper, we have faith it will not collapse under our weight.

When we get sick and have to go to the doctor, we demonstrate faith in the doctor by taking the medicine he/she prescribes. Then we have faith in the pharmacy to give us the correct medicine.

If we backtrack over our existence of just for today, we will find that almost every move we have made is affected by the faith we have in one thing or another.

The lesson for today centered on the greatest of all faithsthe one which determines our eternal existencethe faith in the power of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His power controls all, determines all, and can direct the path of all.

As portrayed in our lesson for today, through Christ we can find a way where it appears to be no way. If we take our burdens to the Lord and truly trust in Him, we will be okay if we have faith in His wisdom. We may not get the answer we want every time but we know it will be the right answer.

"Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you;" Psalm 55:22a NASB.

January 24 – Called as the Intercessor

Alternate Title – Called for the World's Belief

Alternate Title #2 – Jesus Prayed for Us


Bible Lesson: John 17:14-24 (KJV)


The key verse:
John 17:20 (KJV) - "Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; "

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

Which books in the New Testament were written by Jesus Christ? Although He did not physically write any of the New Testament books, we know all of it was written by His followersHis disciples. They quoted Him, and recorded His messages and ideals.

In our lesson for today, we are included in His prayer for the disciples. He prayed not only for them but for all of us who believe in Him through the messages of the disciples (John 17:20). These messages are contained in the New Testament. Jesus said:

"I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message."
(John 17:20 NLT)

Furthermore, we can depend on the Bible, as a whole, to teach us what God wants us to know because all Scripture is inspired by Him.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. (2 Timothy 3:16 NLT)

His prayer gives us insight into his love for believers:

1. He asks for our protection from loss of faith due to the influence of Satan (John 17:15)

2. He asks for our strength in facing the temptations of the world of which we will gain through studying the holy word. We rely on the word, for it is the truth that we live by (John 17:17).

3. He asks for the unity of the believers so we may support each other with a common mission (John 17:21). The believers can experience unity with Jesus and the Father through the Holy Spirit who indwells us.

4. He asks for us to be with Him wherever He is (John 17:24). This is the promise of salvation in which we shall spend eternity with Jesus (John 14:3 ESV).

There is but one Christian church and that church is the body of Jesus Christ (Romans 12:4-5). All believers are part of the body and the Scripture for today emphasizes how important it is for us to be united with each other and with Christ. His prayer for us is a road map for our mission to advance His kingdom on earth.

Christianity is an active religion. We are expected to do something to help advance that kingdom. One of the benefits of His prayer for the disciples (and for us) was for their protection and unity as they went out into the world to spread the word.

He prayed for our strength and protection as we carry out our mission to spread the word about Jesus, and to invite others to unite with us. By doing so, we glorify Christ through His church. We look forward to the day we can spend eternity with Him.

What shall we learn from this lesson:

Introduction
In our lesson for today, we will see a sampling of how women were empowered, early on, to proclaim the message and mission of Jesus Christ. Over the last 2000 years, the church has evolved into one in which the participation of women in ministry is fundamental to church operations.

Today, it is not uncommon for a church to have considerably more women than men in attendance and in ministry. All believers, men, and women have a spiritual gift that can be used to help each other and to advance God's kingdom on earth. This gift is assigned to each of us by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:11).

Discussion - Anna, the woman prophet

One day, Joseph and Mary took the baby Jesus to the Temple in Jerusalem to fulfill the Jewish obligations of "the redemption of the firstborn" and also "the purification of the mother after childbirth." While there, two prophets, Simeon and Annaa man and a woman, proclaimed the baby as the Messiah.

Anna was an elderly prophetess who had dedicated her life to worship God at the Temple after her husband had died. The Bible says she did not depart from the Temple and spent her time, day and night, worshiping God through prayer and fasting (Luke 2:37 KJV).

When she saw the baby Jesus in the Temple, she praised the child as the Messiah and proclaimed this to others (Luke 2:38).

Discussion - Day of Pentecost and involvement of women.

Thirty-three years later (after Jesus' ascension) the role of the Holy Spirit would expand to indwell all believers, both men, and women. This was done on the day of Pentecost. Historically, this was a day normally used to celebrate the end of the harvest season but because of the events on this particular day of Pentecost, it had a new meaning to all believers.

To understand the meaning of our lesson Scripture in Acts 2 we must first be aware of the setting and what had transpired. First, Jesus had suffered and died on the cross and was resurrected by God.

Then, while in His resurrected body, He commanded the Apostles to not leave Jerusalem until the Holy Spirit arrived as He had promised (Acts 1:4). After His final instructions, He ascended into the clouds and disappeared, as they watched (Acts 1:9).

The Apostles would meet together along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus (Acts 1:14). We can see that women remained an integral part of the following of Jesus. There were at times 120 believers who would meet together (Acts 1:15).

On the day of Pentecost, all the believers (men and women) were meeting together in one place when the Holy Spirit descended on them, preceded by a loud noise heard by all present and many others in the surrounding areas.

Upon hearing this noise, many others came running and were shocked to be able to understand what the believers were saying in their own languages. The Bible says, "And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:4 KJV).

The Holy Spirit had given them this ability to communicate with everyone in their own language. They were speaking about the wonderful things God has done (Acts 2:11).

There were some who voiced a disparaging word on the reality of this miracle and accused them of simply being drunk (Acts 2:13). It was at this point when Peter stood to speak to help those present to understand what was happening. He said the people were not drunk (Acts 2:14-15).

The lesson Scripture begins here with Acts 2:16 - both men and women will receive the Spirit and will prophesy.

Peter told those present that what was happening had been prophesied long ago (hundreds of years) by the prophet Joel (Acts 2:16). [See Joel 2:28-32 for Scripture Peter was speaking from.]

Peter said the following in Acts 2:17-18:

17. 'In the last days,' God says, 'I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.

18. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on my servants—men and women alike— and they will prophesy.

This prophecy was fulfilled on this particular Day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended on the believers and they were filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus' promise (Acts 2:8 & John 14:16) and Joel's prophecy were both fulfilled on this Day of Pentecost.

God did pour out His spirit on all the believers (men and women) and they were all indwelled by the Holy Spirit. The Spiritual Gift of prophecy is one of the gifts the Holy Spirit may bestow on a believer.

As a final example of women followers who were empowered to proclaim the message and mission of Jesus Christ, we have the four daughters of Philip (one of the first 7 deacons) who all had the gift of prophecy (Acts 21:9).

This lesson teaches us one main fundamental concept: all believers, women, and men have a place in the Church. We each have at least one spiritual gift which can be used to help each other and to advance God's kingdom on earth.

Your gift may be one of wisdom, leadership, teaching, faith, mercy, service, being a pastor, evangelism, hospitality, missionary, or any one of many other gifts the Holy Spirit could bless you with. You were given that gift for a reason; to use it to help each other and to glorify God.

February 7 – Called to Evangelize

Alternate Title – Called to Testify

Alternate Title #2 – Telling Others About Jesus


Bible Lesson: John 4:25-42 (KJV)


The key verse:
John 4:39 (KJV) - "And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. "

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

During the time of Jesus on earth, strict adherence to Jewish customs prohibited Jewish men, especially Rabbis, from greeting a women in public. Considering this and the fact that Jews and Samaritans generally did not like each other, it was indeed a surprise to a Samaritan womanwho had come to a well to draw waterwhen Jesus asked her for a drink (John 4:7).

In addition, Jesus did not have any container or rope of which to use to obtain water from the well (John 4:11). He was alone for the disciples had gone to the village to buy food John 4:8. He would have to accept a drink from a Samaritan woman's container. This would be even more shocking.

Under these conditions, the Samaritan woman was surprised that Jesus talked to her and actually had asked for a drink (John 4:9).

She was also surprised when He told her things about herself that there should have been no way for Him to know (John 4:18). The way He talked to her and the things He said led her to ask if He was a prophet (John 4:19). Their conversation also led her to remark that one day the Messiah would come and answer all their questions (John 4:25).

Jesus took this opportunity to reveal to her that He was the Messiah (John 4:26). At this point, two things happened. The disciples returned and were shocked to see Him talking to a Samaritan woman.

Secondly, the woman was so startled at what Jesus had told her that she left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village to tell the others about Jesus and their conversation.

In some respects, Jesus was probably considered radical because He did not mind talking to women. In fact, women at times were in his group of followers.

The Samaritan woman was excited to have heard the revelation from the man at the well. She had now become an evangelist, for she had a message to tell the others. Let us look at some attributes of evangelists that fit the woman's attitude:

Jesus knew what was beginning to happen. The people in the village streamed out to see Him (John 4:30). Souls would be saved that day and the days to come. This "harvest" was far more important than the food His disciples had brought for Him to eat (John 4:34).

Jesus agreed to stay for a while in the village and over the next two days, many more would come to hear Jesus and His message and to believe (John 4:41).

All believers are called to be evangelists in one respect or another. How many of the attributes of an evangelist listed above apply to us? The answer is - they all should apply to each of us.

Sometimes we can be in danger of losing some of our excitement and urgency about the message of Jesus Christ. That is the reason we must often ask for the Holy Spirit to inspire and rejuvenate us.
