Application Part of a Bible Lesson - Teacher Training Resources


The application is more than a conclusion to a Bible lesson. This part of the plan should look at the implications of what has been learned and seek to understand how it can be applied to life. Teachers can use a variety of methods to help students not only discuss what they could do but also practice applying it.

Don't forget the application
"Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it -- he will be blessed in what he does." (James 1:22-25)
-- Make sure teachers get to the application part of the lesson. --
