The Sunday School spirit was ignited by Christ and passed by Him to the disciples. The Sunday School is a modern title for an ancient and apostolic service to the Church. It is a school for disciples. It is a school with a textbook – the Bible.

Embrace the Vision
Happy Fall, y’all! This is my favorite time of the year. The cooler temperatures, flea markets, Octoberfest, the colors of the leaves turning—and no grass to be cut!
I’m ready to get into November, a time for Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for. God is so good to me. I give Him all the praise and glory. Though I praise Him every day, this month is set aside to be thankful for God’s blessings to His bounty. “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah” (Psa. 68:19). Yes, truly He does load us with benefits. I have to say, “Thank You, Lord, for Your blessings on ME!” Praise the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
I’m so ready to get busy with the Sunday School work for this year. The General theme is “Embrace the Vision” again this year and the theme scriptures are Matthew 28:19, 20. Let’s embrace the vision of The Church of God and hold fast to it. We have to stay focused on the divine revelation God has shown us. We must keep a clear and unwavering vision, holding the truth.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matt. 28:19, 20). Jesus gave the Great Commission to the Church—go teach and preach. The command is universal, to all nations. This command is for all of us, to tell our families, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and classmates. There are so many right at an arm’s length away, many who need to know Jesus shed His blood on the cross at Calvary for their sins, that Jesus loves them and wants their hearts and souls, that He wants to give them love, peace, joy, and to be free from the bonds of sin. What is the gospel? The gospel is the message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2). This was Paul’s specialty and it should be ours. This message should be for anybody, anywhere, anytime.
Sunday School is an outreach like no other. It’s in our little world every day. We can take the gospel to the world we know. Jesus is my world and telling about Him is a part of it. Invite the people in your world to Sunday School and church. Pray and fast, then pray and fast some more. “And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting” (Mark 9:29). Work your prayer list. God just answered a big one for me. I’m just so thankful. God saved my wife! Praise the Lord! In my eyes, I didn’t see it—I couldn’t see it. With God all things are possible.
Please bring the children to Sunday School and church. They need to learn about Jesus. Thank you, Lord, for Your blessings on me. Love y’all. Praise the Lord of Sunday School!
