8 Jesus’ return The return of Jesus Christ is fundamental to the Christian faith.

What words in Acts 1:11 show that Jesus’ return will be: a) Personal? b) Visible?
c) Physical? 8b How should the promise of Jesus’ return affect our lives? 2Pet.3:11-
Can we say about ourselves everything that Jesus says of Himself? T.L.Osborn says that we can when we get the revelation that Jesus lives in us and our lives are melded or joined with Him. Do you agree with him? Please explain your answer.
10 How do you know when God is speaking to you? T.L.Osborn says that if it is good for God, good for people and good for you then do it without any more questions. Can you give any Biblical examples of his principle?
11 God has entrusted the Gospel to us (1Tim.1:11; 1Thes.2:4; Gal.2:7). T.L.Osborn says that God does His work through people and if we don’t, He can’t. How would you answer his question: What are you doing to carry forward God’s plan for your world/town/road?
12 Osborn says that religion (in any form) spiritualises God but Jesus humanises God! Is this a fair comment? Please explain your answer
