MEMORY VERSE: “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!” – 1 Corinthians 9:16
BIBLE PASSAGE: Mark 16:15-20 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER Manual 6 June 2021)
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
LESSON INTRODUCTION: Shortly after the baptism and wilderness experiences of Jesus Christ, His earthly ministry started with the preaching of the gospel and ended with the commissioning of the disciples for the same assignment (Mk 1:9-14; Matt 28:18-20). Without doubt, this must have been an issue topmost in the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ for all generations.
TEXT REVIEW: Mark 16:15-20.
After the Lord Jesus Christ directed believers to preach to every creature all over the world, He backed up the directive with certain authorities and consequences:
Identify any five of such authorities according to Mark 16:16-18. For instance:
i. Those who fail to believe and baptised shall be dammed. Mark 16:16
