O how I love Thee well,

To rejoice at Thy birth.

Thy friendship suits me well,
Both young and old will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.

The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

Poured His blessing on Thee.

Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds be black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.

Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?

INTRODUCTION TO RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL 16 JUNE 2019

The fact of God’s existence is so conspicuous, both through creation and through man’s conscience, that the Bible calls the atheist a “fool” (Psalm 19:1-3).

Accordingly, the Bible never attempts to prove the existence of God; rather, it assumes His existence from the very beginning (Gen. 1:1). What the Bible does is to reveal the nature, character, and work of God.

LESSON OUTLINES
1. Who is God?
2. His character and works

WHO IS GOD?

Having a right thinking about God is of utmost importance since a false/perverted knowledge of Him could lead to idolatry (Psalm 97:7; Rom. 1:21-24). Also Read – Prayer Points For Open Heavens 16th June 2019

Here is a good summary of who God is: the “Supreme Being”; the “Creator and Ruler” of all that is; the “Self existent One” who is perfect in power, goodness and wisdom. God, at different dispensations, introduced Himself to His people.

For example, He is the Almighty God (Genesis 17:1), I AM THAT I AM (Exodus 3:13-14), the God of ALL flesh (Jeremiah 32:27).  the ALPHA and OMEGA (Revelations 22:13).

God is spirit, by nature, intangible (John 4:24; 2Corinthians 3:17). God is One, but exists as three Persons- God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7). God is infinite (1 Timothy 1:17), incomparable (2 Samuel 7:22), unchanging (Malachi 3:6).

God exists everywhere – omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12), knows everything- omniscient (Psalm 147:5; Isaiah 40:28), and has all powers and authorities- omnipotent (Revelations 19:6). Also Read – Daily Declarations Sunday 16th June 2019

We must consider it great mercy indeed for God to reveal Himself to us as the true God. (John 17:3; 1Corinthians 8:5-6).

HIS CHARACTERS AND WORKS

Here are some of God’s characteristics as revealed in the Bible: God is just (Acts 17:31), loving (Ephesians 2:4-5), truthful (John 14:6), and holy (Revelations 4:8; 1Pet. 1:15-16).

God shows compassion (2Corinthians 1:3; Lamentations 3:22), mercy (Romans 9:15), grace (Romans 5:17; Titus 2:11-12). God judges sin (Psalm 5:5) but also offers forgiveness (Psalms 130:4).

We cannot understand God apart from His works, because what God does flows from who He is. Here is an abbreviated list of God’s works, past, present and future: God created the world (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 42:5); He actively sustains the world (Colossians 1:17); He is executing His eternal plan (Ephesians 1:11); which involves the redemption of man from the curse of sin and death (Galatians 3:13-14); He draws people to Christ (John 6:44); He disciplines His children (Hebrews 12:6); and He will judge the world (Revelations 20:11-15; Acts 17:31).

CONCLUSION RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL 16 JUNE 2019
