RCCG Sunday School Teacher’s Manual 11th February 2024 (Lesson 24)

TOPIC: The Redemption Package

OPENING PRAYER: Father, open my eyes of understanding to your redemptive package in Jesus’ name.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The teacher should allow the Assistant teacher to review the lesson for the previous week.

MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 49:20 (KJV)

“Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.”

BIBLE PASSAGE: 3 John 2-4‬ (KJV)

2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

3 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.

4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: After we surrendered our lives to Jesus, He gave us our redemption package. Inside this package is everything that will make life enjoyable. These things make Christianity delightful and beautiful. It is, therefore, expedient that we unfold our redemption package to enjoy its benefits.

LESSON AIM: To study the nature of the redemptive package giving to believers at salvation.


Through the lesson, students should be able to:
a. Know the constituents of the believers’ redemptive package.
b. Identify the benefits of the redemptive package.
c. Understand why some do not make most of the redemptive package.


To achieve the above-stated objectives, teachers should:
a. Allow the students to read the Bible passage, recite the memory verse, review the previous week’s lesson, participate in the class activities and do the assignment.
b. Allow the Assistant teacher to conduct the class, mark attendance and assignment, grade performance and close the class session with the closing prayer.
c. Lead the opening prayer, review the previous week’s lesson, teach the lesson outlines, summarise, conclude, evaluate the lesson, and give assignment to the students.

TEXT REVIEW: 3 John 2-4.

In this passage, the testimony about Gaius’ faithfulness prompted John to write about the joy he feels and his desire to see him- Gaius (and by extension every faithful believer) prosper. It says:
i. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.V2.
ii. For I rejoice …………………………………..V3.
iii. I have no ……………………………………..V4.




Certain factors may be attributed to the inability of a Christian to enjoy the benefits of redemption.

A. Ignorance is one of them (John 8:32).
i. These benefits are written all over the pages of the Bible.
ii. We must search them out to know them (John 5:39; Acts 17:11).
iii. Until we discover them, we cannot enjoy them (Isaiah 5:13; Hosea 4:6).

B. Another reason is that some Christians have been wrongly taught to be content with their present state.
i. Sometimes you hear them say, “Thank God, I am saved: at least, I am going to Heaven.”
ii. Some Christians may decide to live and die like Lazarus: sick, afflicted, and poor; while others decide to live and die like Abraham; rich and healthy (Luke 16:20-21; Genesis 25:8-10).
iii. Do not be content with your present state, if it is not a pleasant one.
iv. We must revolt against lack, want, sicknesses, affliction, and any other thing that does not bring glory to God in our lives.

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: How can one enjoy the Redemptive package?


Some of the things that accompany salvation can be broadly categorised as follows:

  1. Deliverance: This is being set free from the power of darkness. This include:
    i. Deliverance from curses and evil covenants (Galatians 3:13; Romans 8:1).
    ii. Deliverance from the spirit of fear (2 Timothy. 1:7). Fear has torment (1 John 4:18).
    iii. Deliverance from demonic oppressions (Isaiah 49:24-26; Luke 10:19).
    iv. Deliverance from the wrath of God (Romans 5:9; Ephesians 5:6).
  2. Victory: This means triumphing, dominating, etc. (1 Corinthians 15:57). In the victory package is victory over:
    i. Sin (Romans 6:14).
    ii. Enemies (Isaiah 59:19).
    iii. Devil (Revelation 12:11).
    iv. Sickness and diseases (Exodus 15:26; Isaiah 53:4-5).
    v. Death (both physical and spiritual) – Isaiah 28:18a.
  3. Prosperity: Abundant provisions have been made for us (2 Corinthians 8:9; Job 36:11). However, some Christians are suffering, not because they are not saved, but because they are not meeting the conditions of the covenant of prosperity (sowing, giving, tithing, etc. – 2 Corinthians 9:6)

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should share with the class what changed in their lives since they gave their lives to Christ.

CONCLUSION: If we, as Christians, look mournful and sickly, it may be that we have not been claiming our redemption benefits. We must claim our redemption package. It is our covenant right.


  1. Mention three reasons believers do not enjoy the redemption package.
  2. Mention two benefits that believers can get from the redemption package.

EVALUATION: Why do some believers not make the most of their redemptive package?

CLOSING PRAYER: If you have given your life to Christ, pray for the grace to enjoy the blessings of the redemption package Christ gave to you. If you are yet to receive Him as your Saviour, ask for the redemption package now.

ASSIGNMENT: Write five redemption package benefits that you are enjoying. (2×5=10 marks).
