STUDY 1

2nd Sunday after Christmas January 3, 2021

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 1: The Living God – Who is He? (1)
TOPIC: The Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent
TEXTS: Psalm 147:5; John 16:30; Acts 17:27; Acts 17:27

AIMS:
i. to enlighten us about the nature of God as the Omnipotent, Omniscient and
Omnipresent One and
ii. to challenge us to a life of devotion in worship and service

INTRODUCTION: When we say God is omnipotent we mean He has unlimited power, that is,
He is all-powerful, the reason He is called el Shaddai (or the self-sufficient one). When we say He
is omniscient we mean He knows all things, and when we say He is omnipresent we mean His
presence is everywhere. Understanding this nature of God should trigger devotion in believers’
life, worship, and service. Let us proceed to the study for more detail.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. How is God described in these passages and what do they mean?
a. Gen.17:1; Exo.6:3;
b. Psa.139:4, 7-10; Psa.147:5; Matt. 10:30; Heb.4:13
c. Jer.23:24
2. Discuss how God has demonstrated these attributes in relation to man and the implication
for us: Gen.18:9-15; Isaiah 43:1-2; Matt.10:30
3. In the light of the above, how should we relate to God? 1 Cor.15:58; 2 Tim. 1:12;
Heb.3:12-14; Jude 24-25.

CONCLUSION: Our God is matchless in all ramifications. He can be trusted. As we start the
year 2020, let us come to Him without reservation and no holding back. Let us give Him all we
are with total devotion in life, worship, and service. As we start in joy and peace, so we pray to
end the year in Jesus name.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Our God is awesome!
MEMORY VERSE: Heb. 4:13 – Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:
but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.


 

 

STUDY 2

1st Sunday after Epiphany January 10, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 1: The Living God – Who is He? (2)
TOPIC: The Immortal, Creator of Heaven and Earth
TEXT: Gen. 1:1; Jer. 32:17.

AIMS:
i. to teach God’s almightiness in the creation and His immortality, and
ii. to show us how we can share in God’s immortal and creative power.

INTRODUCTION: Immortality is one of the attributes of the Triune God, and it means the
state of not being liable to or subject to death. God lives forever and can never die. The scriptures
affirm him to be the Creator of heaven and earth, contrary to the claims of some scientists and
atheists. How the immortal God created heaven and earth and continues to govern and sustain
them is what we shall see in this study.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. What do you understand by the phrases, “Immortal God” and “Creator”?
2. How is God described in 1 Tim.1:17; 6:16; Rev 4:11?
3. Explain the almightiness of God in Josh 10:12-13; Acts 12:21-24
4. How can man share in God’s immortal and creative power? Psalm 24:1-4; John 14:12-13.

CONCLUSION: There is no sustainable argument against the affirmation in the Bible that the
immortal God is the Creator of heaven and earth. Indeed, He has gone further to make man in
His own image and demonstrate how we can share in this awesome power – through faith in
Christ!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: God, the Immortal, invisible and the only wise.
MEMORY VERSE: 1Tim 1:17 “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God Who
alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen”.


 

 

 

STUDY 3

2nd Sunday after Epiphany January 17, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 2 – The Living God and other gods (1)
TOPIC: The Creator and the created
TEXT: Psalm 135:15-18; 1 Cor.10:6-11

AIMS:
i. to show that God created all things but Himself is not created,
ii. to teach that idols and images are made from the materials created by God and
iii. to expose the foolishness of worshipping and trusting in gods made by human hands.

INTRODUCTION: It is a fact that many people know and declare that God is the “Maker of heaven and earth, “all that is, seen and unseen,” as the Nicene Creed rightly affirms. What is
very sad and unfortunate is that many people created in God’s image have abandoned the
Almighty God, the living Creator Himself, and gone over to the worship of things created.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Explain what you understand by “The Creator and created”, pointing out the identity of
both with examples. Exod. 32:1-4
2. How are created things (idols) described in the following texts? Psalm 115:1-4; 135:15;
Isaiah 37:18-19.
3. What are the dangers of worshiping the ‘creature’ instead of the Creator? Exod. 32:9-10;
Ps. 135:18; Acts 19:13-17.
4. Are there people who confess the creeds of faith in the Church, but who still worship
idols today? Discuss. 1 Cor.10:6-11; Heb. 3:12-13;

CONCLUSION: God is never pleased when we exchange His glory with what He has created,
for He will never share His glory with anyone. Whoever goes into that lane of life, makes a high-risk journey and will end in destruction.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The path of idol worship is a destructive one!
MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 135:15 “The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of
men’s hands”.

STUDY 4

3rd Sunday after Epiphany January 24, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB- THEME 2: The Living God and other gods
TOPIC: The good God and wicked gods
TEXTS: 1 Kings 18:26-39; Acts 8:9-11

AIMS:
i. to make a distinction between man-made gods and the Almighty God,
ii. to draw attention to the wickedness of man-made gods and
iii. to warn about the dangers of seeking help from other gods (idols)and warn against
patronizing them.

INTRODUCTION: The wickedness of man-made gods can be seen in the story of Elijah and
the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel in today’s key text. The so-called prophets ignorantly cut
themselves and wasted their blood. Satan’s loyalists have never found it easy as he makes the
worst demand on them; just as occult men have to make regular blood sacrifices. Unlike the
idols, God is compassionate; His worshippers are blessed with peace of mind.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. With practical examples as in cultism and occult practice, discuss the wickedness of other
gods and objects of worship.
2. Read 1 Sam 28:7-20; 2 Kings.1:1-4 and discuss what happened to those who sought help
from other gods.
3. As a Christian, how would you describe the nature of the Almighty God? Exod 34:6-7;
Psalm 103:8; Matt.11:28-30.
4. How can we persuade people to renounce the wicked gods and serve the living God?
Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8

CONCLUSION: Both the Bible and day-to-day events have proved how wicked other gods and
objects of their worship are. As Christians, we must pray for the power of the Holy Spirit to
continue to evangelize the world. Only the worship of the living God will give peace and eternal
rest to the world.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: To go after other gods is to court disaster
MEMORY VERSE: Psa.103:8 – The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and
plenteous in mercy.


 

STUDY 5

Septuagesima Sunday, January 31, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 2: The Living God and other gods (3)
TOPIC: The omnipotent and impotent
TEXTS: Exod. 7:8-12; 8:18-19; Acts 13:6-12

Aim: To show that the omnipotent God defends the oppressed and renders impotent the might of
the oppressor.

INTRODUCTION: Today is Septuagesima Sunday, meaning that we are seventy days to
Easter. Our study texts reveal that the Omnipotent God always rises to defend His children and all
who put their trust in Him. Even when the rulers of the earth seem to hijack justice or oppress the
children of God, the Lord has always risen on behalf of His children and thereby rendered
impotent (powerless) the schemes of evil people. This study encourages us to put absolute trust
in God as the One who has all power in Himself.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. From the texts, (Exod. 7:8-12; 8:18-19) what do you understand by the terms,
“Omnipotent” and “impotent”?
2. From the following passages; show and discuss how the omnipotent God has rendered
impotent the schemes of men: Ex. 14:24-30; Esther 5:14; 6:13; 7:10; Acts 13:9-12.
3. Read Psalm 12:5, and identify God’s promise in this passage and how it applies to us
Christians?
4. How do some people, and sadly, some Christians think they can “assist” God in fighting
for themselves?

CONCLUSION: God is still in the business of defending His people including those oppressed.
Irrespective of how injustice has thrived in our land, believers should put their trust in God. He
will surely render impotent the power and schemes of wicked men.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The Omnipotent renders impotent!!
MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 12:5 – For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.


 

 

STUDY 6

Sexagesima Sunday, February 7, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 2 – The Living God and other gods (4)
TOPIC: The Omniscient and Ignoramus
TEXT: Dan 2:1-23, 46-47.

AIMS:
i. to examine God’s omniscience in contrast to the ignoramus,
ii. to identify ignoramuses in our day (especially with regard to matters of the faith) and
examine their characteristics and
iii. to discuss how the Church may maintain an uncompromising response to the attacks that
are rooted in ignoramus activities against the Church

INTRODUCTION: As we look forward to Easter in another sixty days (this is Sexagesima), let
us continue to pray for true wisdom from God in our daily Christian life. God is infinite in
wisdom and understanding. This study will show God’s supremacy over those who claim they
are wise and knowledgeable, but who are actually foolish – the ‘ignoramuses’, idiots, imbeciles,
morons, blockheads, or know-nothings.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Define the terms, “Omniscience” and “Ignoramus” in line with today’s text. (Dan 2:1-23,
46-47)
2. Read Gen 41:8-16, 37-38 and explain how wisdom derived from faith in the Almighty
God can give us excellent power above all worldly philosophies. John 14:26.
3. Discuss the ignoramuses in our day vis-à-vis manifestations in homosexuality, same-sex
marriage; secret indulgence in occult practices, magic, sorcery, etc.? How should the
Church maintains her uncompromising response in the light of Titus 1:15-16 and James
3:16-18?
4. From the key texts, identify the ignoramuses in our day; and their characteristics. See also
1 Cor.2:7-8, James 3:14-15.

CONCLUSION: True wisdom comes from God. The attacks on the purity of the gospel in ‘our
day’ which is already having a bad impact on some segments of the Church are the works of the
spiritually know-nothings – ignoramuses; but the Church must respond biblically.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: When we operate outside God’s wisdom we make ourselves
ignoramuses.
MEMORY VERSE: James 3:17 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then
peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without
hypocrisy”.

STUDY 7

Quinquagesima Sunday, February 14, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 2: The living God and other gods (5)
TOPIC: The Infinite God and finite gods
TEXT: Psa.139:7-13; Jer. 23:24.

AIMS:
i. to expose any object of worship apart from the Almighty God as limited in time and space
and
ii. to show the supremacy of the infinite God over all gods.

INTRODUCTION: Quinquagesima Sunday is the next to the beginning of Lent and it tells that
we are fifty days to Easter. As we prepare for a period of Christian chastity, let us continue to
pray for all the faithful to remain upright till the Second Coming of Christ.
One factor that should move all to the worship of the Almighty God is His infinite (unlimited)
power. Scriptures make it clear that He is present everywhere, at the same time. People across
the world call on Him at the same time and He hears and answers all. On the contrary, man-made
gods are limited to only one place at the same time, that is, finite. How then can we prove that it
is worthless to worship such gods?


STUDY GUIDE:
1. What is your understanding of “Infinite God” and “finite god”?
2. Read Acts 12:5-12 for proof that God is Infinite. Prov.15:3.
3. Apart from the finite nature of man-made gods, discuss the reasons they must not be
worshipped. Ex.20:3-6.
4. In a religiously plural world, how can we convince those who are in the Church to steer
clear of the worship of other gods? 2Tim 4:1-4

CONCLUSION: It is an awesome thing to know that our God is infinite. There is absolutely
nothing beyond His knowledge. Put your trust in Him and you will be preserved to eternity.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The Infinite and finite: which will you serve?
MEMORY VERSE: Jeremiah 23:24 – Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see
him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.


 

 

STUDY 8

1st Sunday in Lent February 21, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 2: God’s covenant with Man
TOPIC: Covenant – What is it?
TEXTS: 1Sam 20:9-23

AIMS:
i. to define “Covenant” from the Biblical point of view and
ii. to explain the power of covenant and implications.
INTRODUCTION: Universally, Covenant is an agreement between two parties. It is a bond
that does not allow the parties to do things their own way other than that which the relationship
allows. In the text today, Jonathan made a covenant with David. How far do they go in fulfilling
the terms of the covenant?


STUDY GUIDE:
1. From various perspectives and cultures, what do you understand by the term, “covenant”?
Use some examples like Teachers and governments agreement; Doctors and government
agreements; Contract agreements. Read 2Sam 21:1-2
2. What do the texts today (1Sam 20:9-23) say about covenant, and what is required of its
parties? 2Sam 21:6-7.
3. Explain the power of covenant and implications to us as God’s chosen people in Christ.
Josh.23:11-16; Psa.89:34; Heb.6:13-20.
4. How do people breach the terms of covenant today in our society with reference to
question one (2Sam 21:1-2) above?

CONCLUSION: As a Covenant with God should not be broken, so also man-to-man’s covenant
in good things are not to be broken. If we must enjoy the covenant promises of God, let us learn
to be faithful in playing our part, by keeping the terms of the covenant.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Craftiness in covenant matters leads to anarchy!
MEMORY VERSE: Ps.89:34 – My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone
out of my lips.


 

 

STUDY 9

2nd Sunday in Lent February 28, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s Covenant with man (2)
TOPIC: Biblical Concept of Covenant.
TEXT: Psalm 103:17-19

AIMS:
i. to teach the Biblical concept of covenant and
ii. to explain the implication for us as God’s people.

INTRODUCTION: “Covenant” in the Bible means “an agreement between God and His people
(for their own good)”, in which He makes a promise to His people and usually in return for their
faithfulness to Him as opposed to their worship of other gods. If believers maintain or disobey
their part of the covenant between God and themselves, what do they stand to benefit or lose?
This and other questions shall be answered in today’s study.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Explain what you understand by God’s covenant with His people. Gen 15:17-21
2. What do the following passages show us about God in relation to covenant? Gen. 9:13;
Deut. 7:9.
3. Highlight what believers stand to benefit when they keep to the terms of God’s covenant.
Psa.103:17-18; Heb: 7:25; 9:15
4. What is the consequence of breaking God’s covenant and how may we as believers avoid
it? Jer.29:3-6,13; Isa 1:16; Jam 4:7-8.

CONCLUSION: Our failure to keep to the terms of God’s covenant is the cause of most of our
challenges. If we can stop playing games with God, and seek Him wholeheartedly through
Christ, He will surely be pleased to help us keep His covenant.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: A Covenant does not respect its breakers.
MEMORY VERSE: Deut. 7:9 – Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful
God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to
a thousand generations.


 

 

STUDY 10

3rd Sunday in Lent March 7, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s Covenant with Man (2)
TOPIC: Covenant with Man – Edenic Covenant
TEXT: Gen. 2:15-19

AIM: To understand God’s covenant with Adam in Eden and its implication for believers today

INTRODUCTION: The Edenic covenant, is the very first covenant made by God with man. It
is the covenant between God and Adam in the Garden of Eden; though it was not overtly called
so. The heart of the covenant was God’s command to Adam not to eat from “the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil” (Gen. 2:16-17).
How did Adam respond to that covenant? What were the consequences of his disobedience?
These questions will form the basis for our study today.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Discuss God’s specific covenant with Adam – Gen. 2:15-19
2. Read Gen. 3:1-7 and discuss how Adam fared in his response to the covenant,
3. What consequences did Adam and the human race suffer for breaking that covenant?
Gen3:8-19; Rom 5:19; 6:23a;
4. What way has God provided for us to re-enter the covenant and recover what we had lost
in Eden? 1 Cor. 15:22; Jam 4:7-8

CONCLUSION: Breaking of God’s covenant by Adam’s disobedience has affected all
mankind; however, if we turn to Christ, we will enter a new covenant of life.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Adam brought death, Christ brought life.
MEMORY VERSE: James 4:8 “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your
hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double-minded”.

4th Sunday in Lent (Mothering Sunday) March 14, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(4)
TOPIC: Noahic Covenant
TEXTS: Gen. 6:6-9; 8:20-21; 9: 8-17

AIMS:
i. to beam light on the person of Noah,
ii. to teach what Noahic Covenant is about and
iii. to appraise the principles and sign associated with Noahic Covenant

INTRODUCTION: When God decided to destroy the whole world because of their
unrighteousness, God spotted a man who received the grace of salvation, because of his godly
life. (Gen 6:8-9).
The uncommon grace of Noah was extended to his family and his godly life continued after the
flood and finally led God to enter into covenant with him. This covenant was symbolized by a
sign as a pledge of God’s goodwill never again to destroy the earth by flood. What then are the
terms of this covenant?


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Describe Noah in the context of the texts today. (Gen 6:5-9; 7:5). With reference to
Mothering Sunday today, how will you describe Noah’s wife in Gen 7:7 in contrast to
Lot’s wife in Gen 19:16-17,26 and discuss the manner of a good mother and wife.
2. In line with Gen. 9: 8-17, what is your understanding of the Noahic Covenant? And what
motivated God to make this covenant? Gen. 8: 20-22
3. What important principles are illustrated in the Noahic Covenant and what is the purpose
of this covenant? Gen. 9: 9, 11, 13, 16
4. Based on God’s faithfulness to His covenant, what is the penalty for pre-flood
characteristics of mankind in contemporary times? 2 Pet. 3: 5-7, 10-13; Rev. 20: 11-15.

CONCLUSION: God made an everlasting covenant with man never to destroy the earth again
by flood using the rainbow as the sign for the Noahic Covenant. God, being a just God will still
bring man and the whole earth to judgment by fire at His appointed time.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Judgment is inevitable but not by the flood.
MEMORY VERSE: Gen. 9: 16 “The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to
remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on
the earth.”


 

 

STUDY 12

5th Sunday in Lent March 21, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(5)
TOPIC: Abrahamic Covenant
TEXTS: Gen. 15: 17-21; 17: 1-11

AIMS:
i. to appraise the person of Abraham,
ii. to know the reason behind God’s love for Abraham and
iii. the role of Abraham’s faith and obedience in the covenant

INTRODUCTION: “Abraham” means “father of nations” (Gen 17:5). He was initially
called“Abram”, “exalted father”(Gen 11:27, 17:5). Abraham was faithful to God by obeying his
command to get out of his father’s land to a place God would show him. Obedience and loyalty
created the depth of love for the covenant of God with him. (Gen 17:1-11). The
comprehensiveness of this covenant and the role of Abraham and the blessings in the covenant
are what we shall study today.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Describe the man Abraham and why God chose to make a covenant with him. Gen 12:1-
4a; 15:4-6.
2. How do you understand Abrahamic Covenant in the light of Gen. 12: 1-3; 15: 17-21;( 17:
1-11),
3. What are its comprehensive concept and confirmation parts of the covenant? 15: 7, 8-12,
13-16, 17:11 and 21:1-4
4. As Christians, how can we be partakers of the Abrahamic covenant irrespective of
nationality? Acts 15:13-20; Rom 2:25-29; 1Cor 7:18-19; Gal 5:2-6; Eph. 2: 11-14

CONCLUSION: The Abrahamic Covenant was based on Abraham’s faith and obedience to
God. If as Christians we are to receive the blessings of God in this world and in His eternal
kingdom, our obedience and faithfulness will be very important.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Are you doubting eternal life? Remember Abraham’s faith.
MEMORY VERSE: Gen. 17: 7 “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and
your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and
your descendants after you.”


 

 

STUDY 13

Palm Sunday, March 28, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(6)
TOPIC: Mosaic Covenant
TEXTS: Exod. 31:12-18; Deut. 4: 12-15

AIMS:
i. to identify the Mosaic Covenant and its biblical components
ii. to learn from Jesus’ humility and sacrificial love and
iii. to expose why the Mosaic Covenant had to be replaced with the New covenant

INTRODUCTION: As we celebrate Palm Sunday today marking the triumphant entry of Jesus
into Jerusalem, let us in humility submit to His Lordship in our covenant relationship with Him.
The Mosaic Covenant is God’s Covenant with Israel at Horeb-Sinai through Moses. Its
establishment (Exod. 19: 5-6) constituted the formal basis for the redemptive relationship
between the Lord and His chosen people until it was superseded by the new covenant (Heb. 8:
3). What then are the signs and significance of this old covenant and why is there a need for the
new one?


STUDY GUIDE:
The Mosaic Covenant sign is the Sabbath (Exod. 31:13,16-17) and based on Israel’s pledge to
obey the Lord (Exod. 19:8;24:3,7) Moses sprinkled the “blood of the covenant” on them (Exod.
24: 8).
1. How do you understand the Mosaic Covenant and its signs? Exod. 31:12-18; Deut. 4: 12-
15 (for further studies see Exod. 20: 1-17 on the 10 commandments)
2. What are the blessings attached to the Mosaic covenant? Exod. 19: 3-6; Deut. 26:18
3. What is significant about replacing the Mosaic (Old) Covenant with the new Covenant?
Jer. 31: 31-34; Heb. 8: 7-13, 18.
4. As Christians, what can we learn from the humility of Moses and that of Christ, being the
essence of marking the Palm Sunday? Num 12:3-7; Phil. 2: 5-11; Jam. 4: 6-10

CONCLUSION: The Mosaic Covenant conferred on the Israelites the honor of being God’s
treasured possession, a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. The replacement of the Mosaic
Covenant with the New had granted all believers in Christ Jesus the priesthood of all believers
and the inheritance of God’s eternal kingdom. Let us, therefore, purge our hearts from all that will
rob us of the blessings of the New Covenant.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Do you know obedience is basic to enjoying God’s covenant
blessings.

MEMORY VERSE: Exod. 19: 5 “Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep
My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is
Mine.”

STUDY 14

Easter Day April 4, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(7)
TOPIC: Priestly family
TEXTS: Exodus 28: 1-2, 40-43; Lev 4:27-35.

AIMS:
i. to discover the origin of the priestly family,
ii. to know the basis for covenant of the old priesthood and
iii. to explain the basis of the new priesthood.

INTRODUCTION: Today, we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead which is the central doctrine
of the Christian faith (1 Cor. 15: 14). The Covenant of the Old Testament priesthood was given to Aaron
and his descendants “as a gift for service” (Num. 18: 7) and as “an everlasting priesthood throughout their
generations” (Exod. 40: 15). This makes the priests mediators between the people and God, offering
sacrifices for atonement (Lev. 4: 20, 26, 31). Christ, as high priest offered His own blood (Heb. 9: 11-12)
to obtain eternal redemption for all who accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior; thereby He
qualifies them as members of the priestly family. What then were the reasons for the Old and New
covenant of priesthood?


STUDY GUIDE:
1. What is your understanding of the priestly family and why it came into existence? Exod. 28: 1-2;
Num. 18: 1, 7, 19-20; (Lev 4:27-35)
2. What are the conditions for the Old covenant of priesthood? Exod. 28: 40-43; Num 18:1,7, 19-20.
3. As we celebrate Easter, how can you explain the Old Covenant of priesthood and the High
Priesthood of Jesus Christ with reference to His death? Lev 21:16-21; Col 1:3, 19-22; Heb 4:14-16
4. In line with Nu 3:10; 18:7, what are those things we must put to death in our office as “Priesthood
of all believers”? Read 1Pet 2:5, 9-12.

CONCLUSION: The Old covenant of the priestly family is limited to the family of Aaron, and by
practice to the Levites’ family. However, since they were not free from sinfulness, there was a need for
a New Covenant, High Priest, Jesus Christ; who is sinless (Heb 7:26-28) and one with God to offer himself
as a perfect sacrifice through His death on the cross thereby making it easy for every believer to approach
the throne of mercy. The only barrier is the unrighteousness of any believer.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Why have some continued with the blood of animals for sacrifice after Jesus
Christ has finally and supremely sacrificed himself for our redemption?

MEMORY VERSE: Heb 3:1 “Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the
Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus.”

1st Sunday after Easter April 11, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(8)
TOPIC: Davidic Covenant
TEXTS: 2 Sam. 7: 8-17; 23: 1, 5; Isaiah 55:3

AIMS:
i. to teach the purpose of God for the Davidic covenant
ii. to know what the Davidic Covenant entails and
iii. the relevance of this covenant to our generation.

INTRODUCTION: An everlasting covenant was made between God and David in which David
and his descendants were established as the royal heirs to the throne of the nation of Israel (2
Sam. 7: 15-16). The promise of an eternal throne to David’s line was a major factor in
developing the hope of a Messiah among the people of Israel. Israel’s expectation in the
covenant reached its highest fulfillment when Jesus the Messiah, a descendant of the line of
David, was born in Bethlehem about a thousand years after God had made this promise to David
the king (Matt. 1: 1). The question is: is the Davidic covenant still relevant to our generation? If
yes, why?


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Explain your understanding of the Davidic Covenant and how do the texts give credence
to your understanding?
2. What motivated God to establish the Davidic Covenant? 1 Sam. 13: 13-14; 15:23,26,28;
16:1,13; Matt. 1: 1.
3. What lessons can we learn from the above (Study guide 3) with respect to our different
callings as Christians?
4. What is the basis for the relevance of the Davidic Covenant to our generation? Ps. 89: 3-4;
Matt 1:1; Lu 1:32-33; Rev. 22: 16.

CONCLUSION: The greatness and honor of David’s name was based on the fulfillment of the
Covenant through Christ Jesus (Matt 21:9). Therefore, make yourself great here on earth and in
heaven by having faith in Jesus Christ, King of kings and LORD of lords.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: If David’s greatness was based on the fulfillment of the Covenant
through Christ Jesus, what is the basis for your faith?

MEMORY VERSES: Psalm 89: 3-4 “I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to
My servant David: Your seed I will establish forever and build up your throne to all
generations.”

2nd Sunday after Easter April 18, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(9)
TOPIC: Marriage covenant
TEXTS: Gen. 2: 18-25; Deut. 7: 1-4; 2 Cor. 6: 14-16

AIMS:
i. to appraise the biblical basis for Marriage covenant,
ii. to discuss contemporary challenges against God’s original plan and
iii. to discuss practical ways of having a successful marriage with the kingdom mind-set

INTRODUCTION: The Marriage Covenant is the oldest relationship in the world, established by God in
Eden for the union of a man and a woman as husband and wife. Man and woman are radically different
physically, emotionally, and spiritually, yet they are designed by God to complement each other as they
“become one flesh”. Despite the failure of Adam and Eve, God’s principles for marriage have remained
the same –It is between a man and a woman; not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. It is also not
about a human marrying an animal. Marriage symbolizes the greater relationship that exists between
Christ and the true believer. Why then is it so difficult for some people to obey this Covenant principle?


STUDY GUIDE:
1. How do you understand the concept of the Marriage Covenant and how do the texts above agree
with your understanding?
2. Why did God institute marriage with its associated responsibilities? Gen. 1: 27-28; 2: 18-20; 1
Cor. 7: 2-3, 10-16
3. What reason did Jesus gave for divorce and why? Matt 5:32; 19:9; Compare Job 24:15-17; Prov
7:10-23; 6:26-27.
4. Compare and contrast contemporary marriage challenges against the original plan of God in
marriage and their consequences. Lev 20:10-16; Josh. 23: 11-13; Matt 19: 3-9; Rom. 1: 26-29.
What are the solutions with the mindset of the kingdom of God? 1 Cor. 7: 2-5; Col 3:5-6.

CONCLUSION: Although marriage will be only here on earth, God’s desire for His people in the
Marriage Covenant is one-man-to-one-woman within the body of believers until they are separated by
death. This can be difficult for Christians not heavenly-minded but Christians who are heavenly-focused
will find it is not difficult.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Only Christians heavenly-minded find it easy to obey and follow the biblical
principles of marriage.

MEMORY VERSE: Gen. 2: 24 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his
wife and they shall become one flesh.”

3rd Sunday after Easter April 25,
2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(10)
TOPIC: Training of Children
TEXTS: Gen. 18: 17-19; Deut.11: 18-25

AIMS:
i. to expose the commands of God to parents to teach their children,
ii. to further show the failure of some parents in contemporary time in the God-given
assignment and
iii. to see the blessings connected to the covenant.

INTRODUCTION: Children are a blessing from God as part of His covenant plan (Ps. 128: 3)
Parenting involves a process of “making disciples” of one’s children by teaching obedience not
just to bring them into parental authority but also to bring them into salvation and spiritual
discipleship (Heb. 12: 11). Training children involves systematic instruction and drilling of their
minds and character to produce self-control and an acceptable level of good conduct at all times.


STUDY GUIDE:
1. How do you understand parental training as a vital covenant for the procreation of
children? Gen. 17: 7-9; 18: 17-19; Deut. 11: 18-23; Ps. 127: 3-5; Prov. 22: 6
2. In what ways in contemporary times have we fallen short of training children according
to God’s injunction and why? Deut. 1:17; 1Sam 2:22-25; 1Ki 22:8; Prov. 5:12; 10:17
3. How can teaching, discussion with scriptural backing, application of discipline when
necessary, prayer, and practice under supervision be a remedy to the current bane of our
society? Prov. 22: 6, 15; Eph. 6: 4; 2Ti 3:15; Heb. 12: 9-11;
4. What are the blessings of godly parenting? Deut. 11:18-25.

CONCLUSION: Leaving a child to go the way he wants will lead him/her to destruction.
Therefore, Christian parenting requires training by the parent’s example with sound instruction
in the faith for the spiritual growth of children and the development of the church.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Failure to train children in the godly path will produce a violent
society

MEMORY VERSE: Prov. 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old
he will not depart from it.”

The 4th Sunday after Easter May 2, 2021
THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(11)
TOPIC: Virtues of faithfulness to God’s covenant TEXTS: Deut. 28: 1-14

AIMS:
i. to identify the various Covenant Blessings and
ii. to teach the condition necessary for the Covenant Blessings

INTRODUCTION: The Covenant Blessings relate to the familiar themes of Israel as God’s
chosen people (Deut. 28: 1, 9-10, 13); rest from enemies (Deut. 28: 7); and prosperity (Deut. 28:
3-6, 8, 11-12). This Covenant is not only the good effect of words; it also has the power
manifested in His love for them to bring them the blessings of life, riches, fruitfulness, or plenty
(Gen. 1: 22, 28). It is important to know that grace prompted God to promise a new blessedness
to the Israelites (Exod. 12: 25) and His faithfulness urged Him to fulfill that promise. God’s
blessedness and grace are eventually fulfilled in Christ (Gal. 3: 15-18). What then are the
requirements for these blessings and how do we meet them as Christians?


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Identify and explain the various Covenant Blessings present in: Deut. 28:1-14.
2. What is the necessary condition for the Israelites and any individual to attract these
covenant blessings? Deut. 28: 1a, 14; Jer. 17:24-25; Luke 11:28.
3. Why should the covenant keepers remain committed to the end and benefit from the
blessings? Dan 12:12-13; Matt 24:13; Heb 3:14; Rev 2:10.
4. What is the most blessed virtue for all believers? Rev 21:3-4. How are you keeping the
conditions of this virtue?

CONCLUSION: The blessings of God which cover every area of life are not an end in
themselves but the outcome of obedience for the purpose of glorifying God among the nations. It
is therefore expedient for Christians to keep their faith in godliness to the end so as to inherit the
eternal virtues in God’s kingdom.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The Covenant Blessings depend on our obedience.

MEMORY VERSE: Deut. 28: 1 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of
the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today,
that the Lord your God will set you above all nations of the earth.”

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(12)
TOPIC: Vices of unfaithfulness to God’s covenantTEXTS: Deut. 28: 15-44

AIMS:
i. to understand the concept of biblical curses and
ii. to expose what can bring Covenant Curses on a people

INTRODUCTION: Today is Rogation Sunday, a day to bless all our work tools and
implements. We should know that God did not predestine us or our work to curses. The curses
recorded in the Bible are a result of the failure of men to obey God’s commandments and their
deviating from the covenanted principles of blessedness to human vices (Deut. 28:15). There are
more curses than blessings and curses are in essence the opposite of the picture of blessedness we
saw in our last study. The first group of curses (Deut. 28:15-19) is an echo of misery in the
regular routines of life, subject to sudden ruin, disease and drought, no protection and
deliverance from the enemy, and people are reduced to the worst kind of barbarism and are also
seen as figuratively returned to Egypt (v 68).


STUDY GUIDE:
1. Explain your understanding of Curses in the Bible? Gen 2:16-17; 3:17-19; Isaiah 59:1-3.
2. Identify and explain the various Curses of life pictured in: (i) vv 15-19; (ii) vv20-26; (iii)
vv 29-29; (iv) vv 30-35; and (v) vv 38-44
3. What brought the Curses upon the Israelites, as individuals or as a group? V 15; Ps. 78:
16-18; Isa. 65: 1-6; 2 Cor. 10: 6
4. How can we regain the lost virtues and God’s blessings on our works and our family?
Isaiah 55:6-7; 12-13;1John 1:9.

CONCLUSION: God’s intention for mankind has been to bless them. However, humans are
always willing to run the paths of self-indulgence that lead to vices. On this path lies vices and
curses which are the opposite of God’s blessings. Therefore, choose to walk in the path of godly
obedience.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Tread the paths of virtues and blessedness and flee from the road of
vices and Curses.

MEMORY VERSE: Deut. 28: 15 “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the
Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command
you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you.”

Sunday After Ascension May 16, 2021

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB THEME: Family and Covenant with the Living God
TOPIC: Concept of Family
TEXT: Gen. 4:1-219-22

AIM: To understand and identify the family from both global and spiritual perspectives.

INTRODUCTION:
Family is a group that consists of parents and their children or group of persons connected by blood or by affinity or through law within two or three generations; living together and having a shared commitment to a domestic relationship. Globally, what defines family is not solely blood relation. The family consists of the people, who support and love you, and the people you can confide and trust in, for example, Classmates, house parents, staff, political, legal, educational/academic and medical families.



STUDY GUIDE
1. How can you define a family in the context of the texts today? (Gen 4:1-2; .19-22).

2. How have the following families affected society positively and/or negatively:
Political family, Academic family, Medical family.

3. What can you say about the legal family in Nigeria? Discuss in the context of 1Kings
21:6-28.

4. Mention some of the spiritual family in your local Church and discuss their relevance
with reference to 1Cor 12:12-13,  27-28.

 



CONCLUSION: The ultimate institution of human society is based upon a family. The family is the source from which human society originates. Therefore, it is important that in whatever family we find ourselves, that we be vessels unto God’s honor and not vessels unto demean, shame, and give sorrow to society.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: You and I belong to a social family. Are we vessel unto honor or
unto dishonor?

MEMORY VERSE: 1Cor 12:12-13 “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body,
whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit”

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB THEME: Family and Covenant with the Living God

TOPIC: God’s foundation for a Family

TEXT: Gen 1:27-309:1-7

AIMS: i. to teach that the foundation of any human social system is laid by the Almighty                      God and

ii. to further expose the principles of God for the human social system.

INTRODUCTION: As we remember the day when the Holy Spirit descended on the early Apostles, let us always ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the life of our family. When God created Adam and Eve, He did so for it to serve as the basis for human society. The foundation was based on vital social principles (Gen 9:6). However, mankind has from generation to generation abused both the foundation and the principles governing human co-existence. How has this abuse affected our human social order?

 



STUDY GUIDE:

1. With reference to our texts, how can you explain God’s foundation for human social existence? Gen 1:289:7.

2. What is God’s foundational principle for human co-existence in Gen 9:6 compare Exod. 21:12-14Rev 13:10? Is mankind following the principles of this foundation both in obedience and in fear of God’s judgement?

3. What is the rating of mankind by God in Gen 1:28  Psalm 8:61Co 15:27Heb 2:8

4. How can you explain the devaluation of mankind by certain human attitudes in our generation? Gen 4:8Rom 1:21-2325; Suggest solutions with reference to Exod. 20:12- 17; John 14:26 (Rom 13:9)



CONCLUSION: God’s foundation principles for mankind are for them to subdue, enjoy and replenish the earth. There is neither murder nor worship of other creatures in His principle of human co-existence. The more we adhere to these foundation principles, the more peaceful coexistence there will be in the human social world.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Every principle of hardship is from mankind.

MEMORY VERSE: Gen 1:28- “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth”.

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB THEME: Family and Covenant with the Living God

TOPIC: Concept of a godly Family

TEXTEph 5:21-336:1-9

AIMS: i. to define a godly family in a plural world,

ii. to differentiate between family and godly family and

iii. to identify the duties of members in a godly family.


INTRODUCTION: Human society is the reflection of the family. Godly families produce a godly society where peace and tranquility reign while morally decadent families produce a corrupt and immoral society. It is clear that God’s purpose for a family is such that every family member has responsibilities, duties, and roles to perform so as to produce peaceful societies. Apostle Paul has stated these in today’s texts (Eph 5:21-33 and 6:1-9 ). How can these be carried out in order to fulfill the purpose of God for humanity?

STUDY GUIDE

1. How can you explain a godly family and what is the purpose of God for every family?

2. Mention the components of a Christian family and their duties.Eph 5:22-2325; 6:1-4.

3. With the obvious decadence in today’s world, how can a family train their children in a godly way? Prov 22:6; Eph 6:4; 2Ti 3:15

4. With reference to Elkanah’s family, identify the benefits and importance of a godly home to society at large- 1Sam 2:17-20; Prov 15:20;


CONCLUSION

The purpose of God for every family is to prepare and have a most blissful world. Therefore, every member in a Christian family should continuously perform their Christian duties so as to exert Christian influence that will impact positively on society.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The whole world will become a paradise if families will rise and embrace godliness.

MEMORY VERSE: 1Sam 2:20“And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, “The LORD give you descendants from this woman for the loan that was given to the LORD.” Then they would go to their own home”.
