A Special Note to the Instructor: It is your preparation before the class, before the Lord that will really determine the success of this course! We are, of course, ready to help you in any way that we can—just give us a call. But let the following verse be your guide as you prepare to teach this so very vital subject to your people; make it a matter of earnest prayer:

"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as unto the Lord and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ."

Col. 3:23-24
