The Siar people of Papua New Guinea will hear the culmination of evangelistic Bible teaching on Sept. 30.
When they heard the history-changing words, “Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world,” they began to realize that the One for whom they were searching had already arrived.
The Siars had been waiting and watching for the One who would take their sins away for many years. When the Siar missionary team taught the Bible lesson on Genesis 3 they introduced the promise that God gave to sinful mankind. As the missionaries continued through the Scriptures they emphasized two major questions: “Who is the Redeemer?” and “How will He save us?”
The Siars now have the answer to question one and will soon hear the rest of the story. When they were challenged with the idea of salvation by faith alone, they found it difficult to believe because they have always trusted in their self-efforts to be made right with God.
“Spiritual new birth will be a massive concept that we will continue to explain and articulate for them as we move toward our final presentation of the gospel on Sept. 30,” wrote missionary Lane Sanford.
The missionaries will be teaching on the life of Christ leading up to teaching about His death, burial and resurrection on Friday.
Please pray that the Siar people will clearly understand the Gospel and will trust in Christ by faith alone.
