Obedience

Junior Level

Intro:

Our Sunday school topic for today focuses on the importance of being obedient in what God asks us to do. He is there to provide us the strength to do the work He commands of us.  With Godís help we can accomplish the tasks and works  that are pleasing to Him .

Handout: Strength Beyond


outline:
  1. Ask the students - Is there something you have been called to do for God but afraid to do it?
  2. What does the Bible say about God helping us?
  3. Ask the students - With Godís help can we do what He has commanded us to do ?
  4. Discuss some of things we are to do for God according to what we have learned through His Word.
  5. Do we please God when we are active in work for Him ? We will  read right now from-- Hebrews 13 : 20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, :21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working  in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
  6. Memory Verse - Philippians 4:13   I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
