A Mini-Bible Course: Some of the resources and directions which Christians have been given regarding their life on earth.
Instruction for Life on Earth~“Then He arose from there and came to the region of Judea by the other side of the Jordan. And multitudes gathered to Him again, and as He was accustomed, He taught them again” (Mark 10:1).
Tasks to Accomplish on Earth~“After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also,and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, ‘The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest’” (Luke 10:1-2).
Power for Life on Earth~“The prayer was no sooner prayed than it was answered. Jesus called twelve of his followers and sent them into the ripe fields. He gave them power to kick out the evil spirits and to tenderly care for the bruised and hurt lives” (Matthew 10:1, The Message).
Warnings & Assurances for Life on Earth~“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers”(John 10:1-5).
Examples of Effective Life on Earth~“There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, a devout manand one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always” (Acts 10:1-2).
