Longview Sabbath School Department
Sabbath School has come a long way, however the Word of God does not change.
Sharing The Word
Good news is for sharing. Think about the times in your life that you have been delighted with good news. It may have been the day you were engaged to be married, the birth of a child, a new job, or the purchase of a new car or home. You were so excited that you could not wait to share it.
It is wonderful to share our joy with others, but the best news in the entire universe is the story of Jesus. When we discover new insights in His word about the salvation that there is in Christ, our hearts overflow with joy, and we long to tell someone else. When the religious authorities tried to stop the preaching of the apostles, Peter declared, “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20).

“No sooner does one come to Christ than there is born in his heart a desire to make known to others what a precious friend he has found in Jesus; the saving and sanctifying truth cannot be shut up in his heart. If we are clothed with the righteousness of Christ and are filled with the joy of His indwelling Spirit, we shall not be able to hold our peace”. — Ellen G. White, Steps to Christ, p. 78.
In Romans 1:14-16, Paul wrote: “I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek”.
The apostle Paul never tired of telling his conversion story. His heart overflowed with joy in Jesus. For him good news was for sharing, and he could not be quiet.

Living It! | High School Outreach
70% of Adventist students and 90% of all high school students attend public schools. We need to reach them! Listen to Marco Topete's testimony.
Exercise your faith in Jesus by Living what you believe every day! When you reach out to students on their own turf two things happen; you set an example of true "outreach" and you demonstrate how much you care about and believe in them. This inspires students to Live it in the same way.
Outreach is the evidence that your faith is real—the Bible calls it the “fruit” of your relationship with Jesus. Less than half way through the Gospel of Matthew, when the 12 disciples were still very young in their faith and full of misunderstanding, Jesus sent them out into the highways and byways to heal, preach and cast out demons.
You don’t have to wait until you’re perfect to be used by Jesus to reach out to your world either. Outreach will drive you to your knees when you realize your need of the Holy Spirit and will drive you deeper into God’s Word as you search for answers. Then as you find answers, encouragement and strength in the Word your desire to reach out will grow even more!
