Encourage Your Students

Take a few moments to inspire the class with the hope of eternity. Encourage the members to look up or quote verses that come to mind about heaven. Start the conversation with Titus 3:7: “That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Discuss the aspect of faith in this matter, and point out the confidence that Christians can have based upon Scripture. Allow an opportunity for testimonies of God’s assurance in the lives of individuals. Perhaps there are those who would like to share a story about the “home-going” of a saint that they experienced. The awareness of something supernatural is often evident to those in the room, and the one passing from this life is many times filled with a sense of peace. End by including, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life” (John 3:36).
