Ambassadors for Jesus Christ 3 Lessons - #1 The fields are RIPE! Doctrine to be taught To receive the gift of salvation is only the beginning of God’s plan; He intended that each believer should pass it on and share it with others (Matt. 28:19). This is one reason we are left on earth. The missionary emphasis, therefore, is an important phase of salvation (Rom. 10:14-15). This lesson should challenge the pupils to obey the command given to every believer to be an ambassador for Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 5:20). Lesson Outline A. All believers called to be missionaries (Acts 1:8) 1. Promise to the disciples (Matt. 4:19) 2. Promise to Moses (Ex. 4:11,12) B. Provision for witnessing (Rom. 1:16; Acts 1:8) 1. Word of God (learn) 2. Holy Spirit (power) C. Reward for witnessing (John 4:36; 1 Thess. 2:19) D. Peter learns a lesson on witnessing (Acts 10:9-22). 1. God loves all people alike. 2. Salvation is for all races. Memory Verse Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” Memory verse game Lesson Presentation Review I am sure you remember some of the wonderful things we will have and be when our condition equals our position n heaven. The Lord has let us see also in His Word what it will be like to be separated from Him for all eternity. Will it be a place where you and your buddies all get together for a big time? (Let pupils recall some of the contrasts of the place of punishment). Do you ever thank the Lord that He has saved you from that? What a wonder the Bible calls it our “so great salvation” (Heb 2:3) Approach

What are you doing about this “so great salvation”? Perhaps you go about your merry way, just taking it for granted, or giving little or no thought about what God wants you to do with it. The Bible says in John 4:35, “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” Do you know what a harvest is? It is a gathering in of grain or crops. Let’s illustrate by the story of Farmer Brown. Draw em! In the spring of the year, Farmer Brown plowed his fields and sowed his seeds carefully. The weather was perfect – just the right amount of moisture and sun. Surely he would have an usually good crop this year. As the weeks went by, he often stood looking across his lands. He had watched the little green shoots appear and gradually grow tall and sturdy until towards the end of the summer the stalks were with grain and ripe for the harvest. You see, the time had come for him to reap (to gather in) his harvest (the grain).
