MEMORY VERSE: And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? – Luke 1:43

BIBLE TEXT: Luke 1:39-56 (KJV)

39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

54 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

56 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Visitation has been the top plan of God to humanity right from the garden of Eden. God always visited Adam and Eve for fellowship and that legacy has been followed by our Lord Jesus Christ and even His disciples practiced it, especially Apostle Paul and his team in Acts 15:36.

LESSON AIM: To give credence to visitation as a powerful tool in the body of Christ.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:
i. State what the power of visitation entails in the body of Christ.
ii. And how important is visitation to the body of Christ.

i. Mercy aids visitation.
ii. Just one visitation might be all that is needed to have all needs met.

TEACHING METHOD: Use teaching/lecture method.

TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time using the suggested time schedule.

LESSON OUTLINES: There are three outlines:


  • God Himself does it (Genesis 3:8). Our heavenly Father Himself laid the foundation by regularly visiting Adam and Eve to have close fellowship with them.
  • In Luke 1:40-41, when Mary visited Elizabeth, there was excitement. Even the baby in her womb was excited.
  • It helps the brethren to be strong in the Lord.
  • It encourages brethren to look up to Jesus as the author and finisher of their faith.
  • It gives them a sense of belonging.
  • It brings changes in the lives of the weak vessels.


  • We should know as Christians that visitation is a ministry which we must not joke with because our master Jesus Christ did it on a daily basis.
  • Apostle Paul was so incurable in visitation and follow up that he took it upon himself to visit towns, cities, homes and individuals for the sake of the gospel and for sharing the love of Christ in the early church. – Acts 15:36; Acts 20:18-21
  • Peter visited Cornelius (Acts 10). He also visited Dorcas (Acts 9).
  • John visited the home of Gaius many times (3 John 1:12-14)


The bible recorded a lot of things associated with Jesus’ visitation, namely miracles, healing, deliverance, blessings etc..

  • Jesus visited the house of Peter and healed his mother in law.
  • Jesus visited Capernaum and the paralysed man was healed.
  • Jesus visited the pool of Bethesda and the cripple man was healed of 38 years of sickness.
  • Jesus visited the house of Zacchaeus and there was salvation.

ACTIVITY: Is visitation important to the body of Christ?

SUMMARY: Please try to visit and follow up new and old members in your house fellowship centre or/ and your parish.

CONCLUSION: Involve yourself in the ministry of visitation and follow up because our heavenly Father has set the example.


  1. In Jesus name, Father, visit every sick person and heal them.
  2. In Jesus name, as from today, any family I visit shall experience a great turnaround.
