Live To Live Again!

Lesson No.


Mar 30, 2024


Scripture Reading: Psalm 116

Memory Verse: 2 Timothy 2: 11

Objective: To embrace the greater hope that exists for all believers who live or die in Christ.

Introduction: Death is not always the most cheerful topic to speak about, as it is scary and sad. As humans, when we hear of the death of a loved one or someone close to us, it’s natural for us to mourn. When the reality of never seeing that person again stares us in the face, it can be daunting. Solomon reminds us in scriptures that ‘the day of death is better than the day of one’s birth.’ Some may wonder why Solomon would pen such harsh words. However, as believers, we need to know that death brings an end to earth’s sorrows and distress and birth is the beginning. Regardless of our state, we should ensure our lives are perfectly knitted in the fold of God.

1. How was man formed according to Genesis 2: 7, and how will he return? Genesis 3: 19, Psalm 146: 3 – 4 & Ecclesiastes 12: 7

2. Many believers fear the thought of dying. Knowing we cannot escape this terror, what appointment was given to man? Hebrews 9: 27 – 28; and how does king Solomon concur with this? Ecclesiastes 3: 2 (first part)

3. What is said about those who die in Christ and how are they judged? Psalm 116: 15, Revelation 14: 13, Revelation 20: 12 – 13

Note: We are called to LIVE and by this we mean according to God’s laws, precepts, and statues. Until we reach a place of holiness, total obedience and submission to God and His words, then we are just filling empty spaces in God’s sanctuary and our end will not be good.

4. ‘Though we die, yet we live’ is a strong phrase that brings hope to believers. How is this cemented in the scriptures? Daniel 12: 2, John 5: 24 – 29; 8: 51, 1 Corinthians 15: 51 – 55, 2 Timothy 2: 11, Revelations 2: 11

5. What contrast is made between the dead and the living? Ecclesiastes 9: 5 – 6; and what confidence does those who live and die in Christ have? 1 Thessalonians 4: 13 – 18

6. What does 2 Peter 3: 9 (last clause) say about God’s desire for the unsaved and how are they warned? Ezekiel 18: 23, 33: 11, Hosea 10: 12, 1 Corinthians 15: 34 (first clause)

7. What timely reminder comes to ALL believers and how are we exhorted to live? Galatians 5: 1
