*1.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.

Both young and old will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.

Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee.

Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.
*6.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?
MEMORY VERSE: ‘’Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet.” — Psalm 8:6
BIBLE PASSAGE: Genesis 1:26-28
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
So God created man in His [own] image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Kingdom means king’s domain. The domain means the area where the king has dominion (absolute control). Dominion also refers to sovereign or supreme authority; the power to govern and control.
It is the power to direct, use and dispose at pleasure. One of the most beautiful features of the Christian life is that as God’s children, we are created for dominion (Genesis 1:28; Revelations 1:6). God wants us to exercise dominion in every area of life.

SECRETS OF DOMINION
In order to enjoy the kind of life God has prepared for us, you need to understand what it takes to have, exercise and maintain dominion. You must surrender your life to Christ, abide with Him and remain under His authority as your Lord and Saviour (2Corinthians 5:17, Job 22:21, Philippians 2:9-11). Open Heavens 31st March 2019
Rule over your own spirit (Proverbs 16:32) by subjecting it to the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14). Exercise your faith in Christ (Matthew 17:20; Luke 17:6). Fervent prayer (James 5:17), the blood of Jesus (Revelations 12:11), and the power of God’s word (Hebrews 4:12) are other essential ingredients for dominion.
Above all, a consistent life of holiness is non-negotiable for anyone that wants to exercise dominion continuously (Hebrews 1:8, John 14:30, Ecclesiastes 10:8).
SOME AREAS OF DOMINION
As a child of God created in His likeness and regenerated in Christ, it is expected that you exercise dominion in every aspect of your life. These include:
1. Spiritual dominion. Ephesians 1:18-22, Luke 10:19
2. Physical dominion. Genesis 9:2, Mark 16:18
3. Financial dominion. 2Chronicles 1:11-12, Proverbs 22:7
4. Political dominion. Genesis 41:40-41, Daniel 2:48, 6:1-2
The devil hates to see you enjoy your Christian life; he is also looking for obstacles to hinder you from exercising dominion. However, God has given you dominion over every power and antics of the wicked one (Luke 10:19).
