RCCG Sunday School Student Manual 19 September 2021 – Lesson 3 – Written By Pastor E.A. Adeboye

TOPIC: Assurance Of Salvation (RCCG Sunday School Student Manual 19 September 2021)

MEMORY VERSE: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” – Romans 10:9.

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 John 5:11-13 (RCCG Sunday School Student Manual 19 September 2021)

11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12 He that hath the Son hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

RCCG Sunday School Students Manual | 19th September 2021 | Lesson 3

INTRODUCTION: Many followers of Jesus Christ look for the assurance of salvation in the wrong places. We tend to seek assurance of salvation in the things God is doing in our lives, in our spiritual growth, in the good works and in obedience to God’s Word that is evident in our Christian walk.

While these things can be evidence of salvation, they are not what we should base the assurance of our salvation on. Thus, this lesson centres on the confidence we have now that we are saved.

LESSON OUTLINES

  1. WHAT IS SALVATION?
  2. ASSURANCE OF SALVATION
1. WHAT IS SALVATION?


Salvation is deliverance from danger or suffering. To save is to deliver or protect. Sometimes, the Bible uses the words saved or salvation to refer to temporal, physical deliverance, such as Paul’s deliverance from prison (Phil.1:19). The word “salvation” concerns an eternal, spiritual deliverance. Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24-25). Salvation means to be saved from “wrath”, that it, to be exempted from God’s judgement of sin (Romans 5:9; 1 Thess. 5:9) which is death – eternal separation from God (Romans 6:23). Salvation therefore, implies “the removal of one’s sin”.

Only God can remove sin and deliver us from its penalty (2 Tim.1:9; Titus 3:5). He does this through His son Jesus Christ (John 3:17). Specifically, it was Jesus’ shedding of His blood, His death on the cross and subsequent resurrection that achieved our salvation (Rom.5:10; Eph.1:7). Scripture is clear that salvation is the gracious, undeserved gift of God (Eph.2:5, 8-9) and is only available through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12). Salvation is the deliverance, by the grace of God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who believe and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour having repented of their sins (John 1:12).

2. ASSURANCE OF SALVATION

When a sinner hears the gospel of salvation, repents and forsakes his sins, he goes on to confess his sins to Jesus Christ and asks for salvation, he will saved be (Rom.10:9-15; Acts 2:21). We should not live our Christian lives wondering and worrying each day whether or not we are truly saved. A sinner who has just prayed a prayer of salvation must believe what is written in Romans 10:9-10 “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”.

Believers should trust that they are saved based on the promises God has declared, not because of their subjective experiences or religious activities (Eph.2:8-9). The assurance of our salvation therefore, comes by faith in God’s word (Rom.5:1). The Holy Spirit also bears (inner) witness with our spirit (Rom.8:16).

CONCLUSION: Do not doubt your salvation. Build your assurance in Christ through intimacy with the word of God

Monday: 1 John 5:10-15 (KJV)
10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Tuesday: Romans 10:8-11 (KJV)
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Wednesday: Romans 5:1-5 (KJV)
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Thursday: Ephesian 2:8-10 (KJV)
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Friday: John 1:1-12 (KJV)
1, In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was at the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Saturday: Romans 6:20-23 (KJV)
20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Sunday: Acts 4:12 (KJV)
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
