This quarter explores ways of honoring God through worship. The Old Testament sessions recall how David and Solomon honored God by establishing the center of worship in Jerusalem and building the Temple. The New Testament sessions focus on Jesus’ teachings about right attitudes that honor God through worship.
UNIT 1 • David Honors God
The first three lessons are from 1 Chronicles and tell about David bringing the Ark to Jerusalem, leading the people in offering a psalm of thanksgiving, and planning to build a house for God. Lesson 4, the Christmas lesson, considers Mary’s visit to Elizabeth as found in Luke. Lesson 5 returns to 1 Chronicles and David’s prayer of gratitude for God’s promise of a dynasty.
UNIT 2 • Dedicating the Temple of God
These four lessons explore Solomon’s dedication of the Temple in 1 Kings. Solomon honors God by providing a place for the Ark, offering blessings to God for fulfilling the promise to David, by praying that God would hear prayers offered in the Temple, by calling the people to keep God’s commandments, and by offering sacrifices to God.
UNIT 3 • Jesus Teaches about True Worship
This unit has four lessons that explore what Jesus says about honoring God through one’s spiritual practices. Matthew points to right attitudes in obeying God only and in honoring God in almsgiving and in prayer. The prayer of Jesus provides a comprehensive life approach to honoring God. Luke teaches about perseverance in prayer as a way to honor God.
