This week’s lesson – Living the Gospel
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Eph. 2:8–10, NKJV).
There is a basic nature to the righteous, and a portion of that is how we respond to the cause of the oppressed. This is not something you do to gain favor with God; it is evidence that the Spirit of the Most High God dwells within you. And here we find that a marker of the wicked is their inability to empathize with those whom God empathizes with. And is not the God of the Bible the God of the oppressed? We would do well to consider our positions on the issues that will define our times. From this week’s lesson – Friday.
Read about it, think about it, and let’s discuss this Sabbath.
