Philippians Lesson Plan
The era of the pale horse is a vision of death on a pale horse. “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, come and see. ” “And I look, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was death, and hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sward, and with hunger, and with death, and with beasts of the earth” Philippians 1-4 Joy: We have joy in Christ Jesus: only in Christ is real unity and joy possible.
Only in Christ Jesus will we be able to escape the horror that will come up pm the face of this earth in the near future.Knowing that all Christians will be with Christ gives us all great joy and hope. Circumstances and suffering: we have learned that we should rejoice in the spreading of the gospel in spite of our situation and circumstances; continue to give thanks to our Lord and Savior, for the good times as well as the bad times. In Christ: when reading the book of Philippians, Paul’s appeal to have the peace of Christ in the 4th chapter Paul urges the Philippians to have peace with the brethren by living a life-style of unity, prayerful, dependence, and holiness.All Christians should have this kind of life-style, peace with the brethren, peace with the Lord, peace with all circumstances. The Christian mind: The Christian mind should be Christ like, thanksgiving in our prayer always, not proud but humble, having complete faith in God, exhort the Lord at all times. Philippians 1-5 Knowledge ad knowing: Paul appeal to have the knowledge of Christ in chapter 3: Paul warns against confidence in the flesh.
The bible teaches us that we should not lean on our own understanding but to seek God for all things including knowledge and God’s righteousness.Paul’s teaches here in this chapter that true righteousness is received through faith in Jesus Christ not by mechanical obedience to any law in having our own righteousness. Paul expresses this in 3:8, he warns against living for flesh in 3:17-21. Courage and confidence: Paul preached the gospel of Jesus Christ with boldness as he had complete confidence in the word of God and not confidence in the flesh. Philippians 1-6 God at work in us: This takes us to chapter 2:5 “let this be in you which was also in Christ Jesus”.I guess we should ask our self this question, do other people see Christ in me? When you are asked to do something, do you do it without complaining and disputing, grumbling, or arguing, is this kind of behavior Christ like? Paul stated in this chapter that all Christians should be blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked world. When reviewing the lesson plan and the curriculum evaluation, I believe that my lesson is well understood for any youth leader to understand.
However, I do feel that there are some weak points and strong point and can be fixed at anytime. I do believe that the bible use many times throughout the lesson, however weather is changes a student lives it’s up to that student, I can not change anyone, I can only teach the word of God. I think the material meets the development needs of the student, I think this lesson plan is a little weak for fourteen and sixteen years old, I think provide more changeling information and going deeper into each lesson would meet these needs.
