‘Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth”  2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
 
The title of this quarter’s study is “God’s Urgent Call”
 
The theme for this quarter reminds us that God continues to speak to us through God’s written Word.  God calls ordinary people from diverse backgrounds to make a difference.  From the days of judges to the prophets to the early church leaders.  God call and the faithful answered.
 
Unit 1 “Called to Be Strong,” introduces the era of judges.  The book of Judges continues the history of Israel after Joshua’s death.  God raised up a series of national leaders called judges.  Empowered by God, judges delivered the people from their enemies.
 
Unit II “Calling of Prophets,” looks at how God called various prophets at different times to specific purposes included in this unit are the calls and responses of Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Amos.
 
Unit III, “Calls in the New Testament,” demonstrates that God continued to work through ordinary people. Their witness reminded the early church that God assures the success of those who will answer God’s call.  The unit highlights the calls of Stephen, Peter, Philip, Ananias, and Paul.
