SUNDAY 16TH OF OCTOBER, 2022
LESSON SEVEN (07)

TOPIC: THE NEW BIRTH (SALVATION)

BIBLE TEXT: Romans 6:4-6
[4]Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
[5]For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
[6]Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

MEMORY VERSE: 2 Corinthians 5:17 “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold all things are become new”.

LESSON AIM: At the end of this study, teenagers will have the understanding that the new birth (Salvation) is not physical but spiritual.

CENTRAL TRUTH: The Holy Spirit does the work of the new birth.

INTRODUCTION: When a child is just born, everything about that child is new, the child has a new life, new identity and the child will have some similar features with the parents. The institution the child is born will have to create a new record for him and the child will have to be registered into the country and any school or institution the child attends.

The moment we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal saviour and we are baptized we have a new life where all our record of wrong is deleted and we now have a new record with Him. We then begin to live like Him as we follow his instructions. New birth in Christ is similar to this but it is spiritual through the work of the Holy Spirit.

The same way the mother does all the work of pregnancy to delivery, so also the Holy Spirit does the work of the New birth so we can see the Kingdom of God (John 3:3). Once we believe in the saving power of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit regenerates us and begin to transform us into the image of Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17.
