T4T Lesson #1: The Assurance Of Salvation

“T4T” is an acronym for “Training For Trainers”: an effective process used by missionaries and church planters around the world for rapidly raising up mature Christian disciple multipliers.

Each of the seven basic lessons are designed for a trainer working with a new Christian. The goal is to build into the DNA of every new believer accountability-driven and obedience-based discipleship multiplication.

The reason that we use the word “multiplication” in the process is simple:

  • If 1 person makes 5 disciples, that’s a total of 6 mature disciple makers
  • If 1 person makes 5 disciples, and those 5 disciples make 5 disciples each, that’s a total of 31 mature disciple makers
  • If 1 person makes 5 disciples, those 5 disciples make 5 disciples each, and those disciples make 5 disciples each, that’s a total of 156 mature disciple makers.

Following this line of math, 1 faithful disciple multiplier can become the catalyst for a movement:

  • 1
  • 5
  • 25
  • 125
  • 625
  • 3,125
  • 15,625
  • 78,125
  • 390,625
  • 1,953,125
  • 9,765,625
  • 48,828,125
  • 244,140,625
  • 1,220,703,125
  • The whole world hears the gospel in our generation!

Lesson #1: The Assurance Of Salvation

Congratulations on your decision to follow Jesus! Welcome to God’s family. (Ephesians 1:4-5). From this point on, you can develop your new relationship with God, enjoy the benefits of all his promises, and learn to share your story with people who are far from God.

As we study the Bible together, please read each verse and write the answers to every question in your own words.

1. The Preparation For Salvation

(A) What is sin? (Mark 7:20-23)

(B) What is the result of sin? (Isaiah 59:2)

(C) People try many different ways to find God and fail. Why? (Ephesians 2:8-9)

(D) How does God draw us to himself? (John 12:32)

2. The Way Of Salvation

(A) Salvation math: Jesus’ sacrifice + your faith + repentance = salvation (1 Peter 3:18)

  • Has God done what he wants to do? (death and resurrection; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)  Yes___   No___
  • Have you done what you need to do? (believe and repent; Romans 10:9)  Yes___   No___

If you believed in Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and repented of your sins, then you are saved! (Romans 10:13)

(B) What does Jesus promise to give those who follow him? (John 10:28)

(C) Eternal life does not only mean that you will live forever. Life with God also means that you are able to live a lifestyle of holiness, compassion, and courage right now! From today throughout eternity, you are free to enjoy the abundant grace of God.( Ephesians 1:3)

(D) Believing in Jesus Christ not only means that you have eternal life. You also have a responsibility to obey him as Lord. God commands you to go out and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:18-20, 1 Peter 2:9)

What is your response to these biblical truths?

5. Your Life After Salvation

(A) If you sin again after salvation, are you still saved? (Romans 8:38-39)

(B) What do you do when you sin again? (James 5:16)

(C) What happens when we confess our sins?(1 John 1:9)

6. Memorize This Bible Verse

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

7. Go And Make Disciples

When you repent of your sins and receive salvation through Jesus Christ, your life is transformed. Now you have peace with God and joy in your heart. You should also experience a burden for those who are far from God and a desire to share the good news with them.

(A) The first thing that you should do with your new life in Christ is share the good news with people you know.

(B) Make a list of five people you know, and tell them your story:

  1. Your life before Jesus Christ
  2. How you met Jesus Christ
  3. Your changed life with Jesus Christ

(C) Teach each person T4T Lesson #1: The Assurance Of Salvation.

(D) Train each person how to share their story and repeat this disciple making process.

(E) Pray by name for the salvation of five people who need to hear the gospel and be saved. Ask God to give you faith, obedience, and boldness for the Great Commission task.

(F) At the beginning of every new training session, you should ask your disciples to share stories of how they are being obedient to the Great Commission.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the best news in the whole world. God’s will is that every person from every culture and language will hear the gospel and receive salvation. (2 Peter 3:9)

  1. Once you are biblically born again your eternal salvation is sealed! You are bound for Heaven and you’re sure to get there! See John 10:27-29

    But the thing most Christians don’t understand is that:

    Salvation Comes in Threes.

    There are three levels to salvation, each affecting a different part of your being at a different time and in a different way.

    The Three Levels of Salvation are:

    (1) The Regeneration of the Spirit –

    The Bible says, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you…” Eze 36:26

    (2) The Restoration of the Soul (mind) –

    The Bible says, “…Receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.” James 1:21

    (3) The Transfiguration of the Body –

    The Bible says, “…Waiting for the time when we will take our place as sons, that is, the salvation of our bodies.” Rom 8:23 (Bible in Basic English)

    In strictly biblical terms we call them:

    (1) Justification
    (2) Sanctification
    (3) Glorification

    • Hey John,

      Thanks for taking time to share your ministry and thoughts with us. Just to be clear, are you talking about salvation as a process whereby you can lose your salvation based on works, or are you talking about three ways that the Bible helps us understand our secure salvation by understanding how Christ saves us completely through spirit, soul, and body?

      Thanks!

      James
