Bible Study “All Saints Sunday”

Share:  Your highs (something that made you happy) and lows (something that made you sad) this week with others around you or write them down.


All Saints Day is a universal Christian Feast that honors and remembers all Christian saints, known and unknown.

All Saints' Day falls on the first Sunday of November. It is a day when we commemorate those we have lost as well as the Christians who have lived before us and have testified to their Christian faith.  The list of Saints who were once revered was quite lengthy because of the accomplishments of those people.  Much of that went by the wayside after Martin Luther did so much study.  Martin Luther expanded the idea of sainthood to include “all Christians” on earth and in heaven.  In our churches, we also recognize the people of our churches who have passed on in the last year.  It is our belief that as Christians they held firmly to the teachings of the Bible.  They could best be seen in the statement of the following sentence. The role of the Saints is never to distract or detract from the work of Christ, but to give examples where we can see Him at work through countless saints just like us who have served Him throughout the history of His church.


Our ancestors have been examples and models of faith for us to follow.  Some have died and  others still live.  They all stand with us as teachers, examples and guides.  They have cared for us, nurtured us, loved us, guided us, taught us and mentored us.  They showed us a how to live joyfully, holy and earthly.  Sunday November 6, we will remember our family and friends who have died since last All Saints’ Day, but who live in our memory in Christ. 

Opening Prayer:  For all the saints – those who have gone on and those right here in our lives, we thank you, God. Help us to celebrate those who show us the way and help us to choose to be the saints you call us to be. Amen.    


Please open your Bibles to Luke 6:20-31 and read or read the scriptures below. 

Luke 6:20-31

20 Looking at his disciples, he said:

“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.
22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.

23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.

24 “But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.
25 Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.

26 Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you,
for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.

Love for Enemies

27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.


Today we have Jesus’ crash course for his disciples: how are they to live as the saints God has called them to be? These ways to be are sometimes called the Beatitudes – which we could call: the Be Attitudes or Ways to Be. It’s not about clutching what you have, holding it tight in your hands. It is about holding your hands, palms up, expecting good things. It’s not about stuffing yourself with empty calories, but waiting for the food that really satisfies. And the bottom line? Do to others what you would want them to do to you.

Journal: (Try and keep a journal for each Sunday for a year) write or draw in your journals:  What did you learn from the Bible scripture?

Click Oval Diagram:  Identify and draw a person or people you know who sounds like the people Jesus is describing for examples: the school-crossing guard, the person who cooks lunches in the school cafeteria, the nurse at the clinic, fire fighters, etc.  Also identify people you know who have gone on to be with God: perhaps a grandparent, a soldier who fought for our country, for example.  Remember the kind things this person or people did that remind you that he/she loved Jesus and lived like Jesus would want us all to live

Prayer:  Almighty God, you have surrounded us with a great cloud of witnesses: Grant that we, encouraged by the good example of your servants, may persevere in running the race that is set before us, until at last we may be with him attain to your eternal joy; through Jesus Christ, the perfecter of our faith, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
