REASON #5 - Sunday School Shows Us Examples And Models For A Christian Life
Christ, who suffered for you, is your example. Follow in his steps. (I Peter 2:21b)
Are you familiar with the “W.W.J.D.?” slogan…What Would Jesus Do? Surely there is no greater example or role model for anyone to follow than Jesus Christ, but still, many people have a problem with the whole “W.W.J.D.?” thing. What is their problem? You can’t ask “What Would Jesus Do?” until you know what Jesus did and said! And, quite honestly, the average person out there in the world has very little knowledge about anything that Jesus ever did or said. And, without that knowledge and understanding of who Jesus was and what he did and said, how can you possibly use him as an example to follow in your life?
But, there is a way to find out all about Jesus Christ…who he is, what he did and what he said. And where can you find this information? In the Bible! And then to really understand the meaning of the scriptures that tell us about Christ, you also need to gather together with other people of similar age and interests in Sunday school.
Using the Bible as our textbook in Sunday school, we learn about what’s right and what’s wrong. We see examples of people who followed God and those who rejected his leading. And, we see Jesus Christ, his life, his ministry and the Way of Salvation that is available through him. The lessons are there for each of us to learn, so please join us as, together, we “dig in” to God’s Word – the Bible – each week in Sunday school.
Questions To Think About: Do you really have a good knowledge of the things that Jesus did and said? How could you increase your knowledge in this area?
Prayer Suggestion: Pray for the pastor of your church.
A Call To Action: Use your social media contacts to tell someone why you attend Sunday school.
