Sunday Lesson Notes from October 10, 2021
Read Psalm 33: 1-10
God is SO MAJESTIC! What does that mean to you?
Sometimes it is difficult with our human minds to grasp the concept of God’s Majesty. He is so vast, so powerful, so unfathomable. He speaks words and creates universes. He controls the weather, created physics and math. Sometimes it is hard to even know the vocabulary to use to describe how wonderful and great GOD is. God can control death and life, our destiny or life events, every event in the world!
Take a moment to meditate on how MAJESTIC GOD is. Yet, he wants to have a personal relationship with each individual human being. How often do we think of this as we go about our regular activities of the day? We especially can forget GOD when we are in distress. It is important to remember that there is a bigger picture in our life than just our individual life situation. We need to see the way God sees.
Read 1 Corinthians 13:1-7
God loves us SO much! What do you think or how do you feel about God’s Love for you?
Maybe is it easier for some to connect with God’s love for everyone else but not for you as an individual person?
Can we love God and not people? God expresses his love to us through our relationship with him and with each other. Love is not a feeling, it is an action. An action to sacrifice our own needs for someone else's needs.
God showed us how to love when he sacrificed his SON Jesus on the cross for us!
God loves us and expects us to love each other. This is how we show love to GOD and to each other, by practicing: patience, kindness, humility, honor, serving, not getting angry or envying each other, by forgiving and not holding a record of wrongs, by persevering, rejoicing in truth, protecting, trusting and hoping!
Read Psalm 107:1-15
How can we show THANKFULNESS to GOD?
Being grateful for who God is can take us to a better mindset in life. God is faithful and we can trust that he will always provide for our needs. God has allowed each of us to experience situations that we can sometimes take for granted.
FInally remember to be thankful for the most important gift GOD has given us: Jesus dying on the cross in our place so that we can have a relationship with GOD!
