Passing down recipes

Dwayne McCrary, editor of the LifeWay Extra, created a Facebook group for Extra’s readers. I think it is a good idea, and joined it. Get a Facebook account and pile on!

To teach the lesson, “Ephesus: Facing Religious People”, make the point that Paul wrote the following letters while on his 3rd missionary journey: 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, and Romans. The act of writing down the truth helped others avoid making errors in the faith (see also 2 Peter 1:15).

One way to “Teach what’s needed” is to write it down so that others can read the truth. Have you written down your beliefs about Jesus Christ so that others may know what you believe? That’s one way you can help others who have an incomplete understanding of who Jesus is.

Ask class members if they pass down recipes in their family. Ask why? Make the analogy of passing down written beliefs about Christianity to help future family members avoid errors in the faith!
