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 “Acknowledging God”
This quarter focuses on ways God’s people have acknowledged the greatness of their God. The quarter begins with guidance for following God. Then, with Easter, the quarter turns to ways Jesus provided a channel for giving God glory and honor. The quarter concludes with a look at times when the Hebrew people sang praises to God.
Unit 1, “Follow in My Ways,” provides four sessions. drawn from the books of Genesis and 2 Chronicles, showing how Abraham and Solomon acknowledged God by following God’s guidance.
Unit 2, “All Glory and Honor,” has five sessions. The sessions from the books of Luke and John deal with how Jesus’ resurrection opened the way to honor God. The visions in the book of Revelation praise God with Majestic symbolism.
Unit 3, “Give Praise to God,” has four sessions – found in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, and 2 Corinthians – that emphasize the people’s response by bringing drawn from the books of Psalms and Hebrews that rejoices in God’s reconciling action on behalf of the people.
