When sharing the Gospel with another individual, it is very important to use teaching time wisely. After all, you may only be given one opportunity to meet with that person. So, what do you teach?

This article provides an illustrated teaching template that outlines the scope of a personal Bible study lasting just over an hour. It is useful as a teacher’s guide (i.e., set of notes) for Bible study leaders and as a learning handout for Bible students.

Human beings were created in the image of God with the prospect of living with Him in eternity. Choices made by humankind not only affect the quality of life on the earth but also what happens beyond the grave. We must not allow physical distractions to deter us from fulfilling God's expectations. His promises are real and the stakes for humanity are high.

Divine Truth transforms troubled lives by revealing the error of our ways and directing us to the lifestyle God always intended for humanity. Following His guidance not only leads to an improved quality of life on earth but also restores our broken relationship with God and holds the promise of an enduring peace beyond the grave in Heaven with Him.

The best advice for those who find themselves trapped in a deep hole is to stop digging. Through selfish desires, foolish actions, or shear ignorance, all of us have managed to fall short of God’s expectations and thereby place ourselves in that proverbial “deep hole”. In the process, we have created personal hardships, hurt others, and more importantly managed to alienate ourselves from the Creator. These things have profound implications not only for life on earth but for what awaits us beyond the grave. A divine transformation is needed to get us back on the right track.


What Is The Truth That Transforms?

The truth that transforms is a Divine Truth revealed by the almighty Creator of the universe. Having designed the heavens, the earth, and everything in them, He alone is the source of knowledge governing all aspects of our existence. As a loving father cares for his children, so God wants only the best for humanity. That is why He has revealed the Truth about who we are, how we should live, and what the futures holds. For those who submit to His will, the end result is a personal transformation that not only leads to a better quality of life on earth but also an eternal home in Heaven.

All human beings are precious in the sight of God. We were created that way.
