For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.
Sunday School Conversation
READ: 2 Corinthians 4:5-6
SHARE: In this letter, Paul is stating to the church in Corinth his “plan” for his ministry. What was at the center of Paul’s plan? What was Paul’s position in this plan? What message are you sharing with your life? Is Jesus Christ Lord (the boss) in your life?
PRAY: First of all, thank God that he desires for you to know him in a personal way. Pray that He would help you make him known to those in your life.
Parents – Refer to the “One Conversation” page for further discussion with your children.
READ: 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
SHARE: God wants every part of our lives even down to our thoughts to be in agreement with His will for us. Sunday we talked about God’s determined will versus God’s desired will. What are some areas of your life that are part of God’s determined will (things you can not change)? How is this different from God’s desired will for you? Review your sermon notes and talk about how we can know what the desired will of God is for us. Are you doing what you need to do to discern God’s desired will for your life? What more do you need to do?
PRAY: Ask the Lord to help you know what His will is for you. Commit yourself to the Lord that you will seek Him in His Word, listen for the prompting of His Holy Spirit, seek wise counsel and that you will know the assurance of His peace.
READ: Proverbs 21:31
SHARE: What does this verse mean to you? Share your thoughts. How are you preparing your “horse” for battle? (See also Ephesians 6:11) Share some of the victories that you see GOD winning in your life? Be sure to give him the glory and praise for winning those battles.
PRAY: Thank God for giving you victory over the battle of sin and death, by giving his Son to die for you. Also thank Him for the many victories he wins for us each day of our life. (Thank Him specifically as those victories come to mind.)
