THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 5: Principles for raising godly family (3)

TOPIC: Maintaining a right attitude

TEXT: 2Chron 17:3-6; Col 3:17-21.

AIMS:

i. to define a right attitude in a godly family and

ii. to know how best to inculcate this to children’s hearts and lifestyle.



INTRODUCTION: One important family value which parents need to raise godly children is placing everything in God’s hand for divine solution and intervention. Parents shouldn’t argue or carry bad attitudes to each other —children are to be taught from an early age to resolve conflicts with the right attitude. These issues should often be discussed and prayed over at the family altar so that they can be generally settled. In the text today, we see the result of training passed down to Jehoshaphat through David. Our attitude to God and to ourselves as parents is very important in raising godly children.



STUDY GUIDE:

1. What do you understand by the right attitude and how best can the principle be laid in our homes? Deut. 4:9; 6:6-7; 1Kings 2:1-4.

2. How best can you describe the effect of right parental attitude in the following passages?       Compare 1Sam 1:21-23; with 1Sam 2:17-18; 1Kings 2:1-4 with 1Kings 3:4-59-11; 2Chr        17:3

3. What do you think about a father and mother fighting in public and in the presence of their children? Reference to 2Chr 22:2-5; Amos 2:4-5; Matt 14:3-8.

4. What should be the goal of parents having a right attitude in a Christian family in the society? Matt 5:16; 2Cor 4:6; Col 3:17.



CONCLUSION: As Christians, it is expedient for us to preach and act godly at home so as to build a home that can impact the society with godly influences.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Parents, watch your attitudes because your children are your image.

MEMORY VERSE: 2Chr 17:3 “And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he walked in the first ways of his father David and sought not unto Baalim”.

11th Sunday after Trinity August 15, 2021

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 5: Principles for raising godly family (4)

TOPIC: Praying as a family

TEXT: Acts 12:1-16; Eph 6:17-18; Col 4:2; 1Thess 5:17.

AIM: To teach the essence and effect of praying together as a Christian family.

INTRODUCTION: Parents should pray together as a couple and with their children. The importance of a family altar cannot be overemphasized. The truth is that couples should already be praying together before their children arrive, as part of a healthy marriage, (1Sam 1:9-11). When children are born, they are brought into the correct environment. Children ought not to be born in an environment where family prayer is not a normal part of family life. A family’s life in God together should never be underestimated—it is the foundation for a strong family in an ungodly world.



STUDY GUIDE:

1. From the text (Acts 12:1-16; ) what can you say is the essence or reason for a family to pray together? 2 Kings 19:17-19; Acts 12:5.

2. Give reasons why Christian families should continuously keep the bond of prayer. Luke 21:36; Eph 6:11; 1Pet 5:8-9

3. What are the conditions for effective family prayer? 2Ch 7:14; Isa 58:9; John 14:14.

4. Why does it appear some prayers in the family are not answered? Isa 59:2; Mic 3:4; Jam  4:3.



CONCLUSION: As Christians, we should always remember that families who pray, pull, play together stay together, and shine out as a bright light in a dark and confused world.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The family that prays together wins together.

MEMORY VERSE: Col 4:2 “Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving”

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 6: Marriage and Covenant with the living God (1)

TOPIC: Marriage from the world’s perspective

TEXT: Gen 24:1-20; 50-67.

AIMS:

i. to teach the various practice of marriage in contemporary society and

ii. to teach how Christians can exemplify the principle of monogamy.



INTRODUCTION:

According to Webster Dictionary, Marriage is the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife. From the global context, there are various types of marriage- Monogamy: Marriage between a man and a woman at a time; Polygamy: marriage in which a spouse of either sex may have more than one mate at the same time; Polyandry: the state or practice of having more than one husband or male mate at one time; Polygyny: the state or practice of having more than one wife or female mate at a time; Contract marriage: A marriage that is meant to last for a certain period of time with conditions.

Apart from these, there are such erroneous forms of marriage that are contrary to defined human principles of marriage such as Bestiality: sexual relations between a human being and a lower animal; Homosexuality: erotic activity or marriage with another person of the same sex; Lesbianism: homosexuality between females; Gay: homosexuality between males; Incest: a sexual relationship between persons so closely related that they are forbidden by law to marry. How have all these forms impacted society and the Church of God positively or negatively?



STUDY GUIDE:

1. Define Marriage from the most accepted global perspective. Gen 2:22-24.

2. Mention some of the global practices of marriage and their implication or effect on society and the Church of God. Gen 21:9-14

3. Present some of the erroneous types of marriage in the contemporary world and explain their negative impact on society and the Church of God- Lev 20:11-21

4. How can Christians demonstrate their belief and practice of monogamy in the midst of a morally decadent generation? 1Cor 6:18; 6:12-13; 1Th 4:3-5; Heb 13:4.



CONCLUSION: The dictionary definition of marriage is in line with the biblical principle of marriages as instituted by God- One man to one woman. Any variance is a principled variation to please the inordinate urge of humans. Christians beware!!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The global chaos in marriage is a result of global moral decadence.

MEMORY VERSE: Matt 19:5 “For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh”

13th Sunday after Trinity August 29, 2021

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 6: Marriage and Covenant with the living God (2)

TOPIC: Marriage from the Christian perspective

TEXT: 1Cor 7:1-16; Heb 13: 4

AIMS: 

i. to teach the biblical injunctions for Christian marriage and

ii. to further expound on the fundamental principles for a peaceful marriage.



INTRODUCTION: The difference between Christian living and secular living lies in the values or virtues that guide each life. There are many attitudes that can and are permitted in a secular marital home that Christianity and godliness do not allow because of the negative impact these will have on society.

What are these attitudes and how can fundamental Christian principles create a peaceful atmosphere for a Christian marriage?



STUDY GUIDE:

1. From the text today, what is the basis for Christian marriage? 1 Cor 7: 2; Compare Gen 2:19, 22-24.

2. According to 1 Cor 7: 3-5, both husband and wife should render to themselves the affection due to each other. How do you understand this and how the failure to perform conjugal responsibilities has caused marital chaos and destabilization?

3. What are the causes of divorce in our contemporary society and how can Christians overcome these challenges? Discuss in the light of Matt 19:9; 1 Cor 7: 10-16.

4. Discuss some of the factors that can enhance peaceful marriage.



CONCLUSION: Our contented lives as Christians should be extended to our marital lives so that the world around us will see our chastity and follow our godly lives.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Christian marriage is based on godly principles and secular marriage is based on carnal principles.

MEMORY VERSE: Heb 13;4 “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”

14th Sunday after Trinity September 5, 2021

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 6: Marriage and Covenant with the living God (3)

TOPIC: Principle of God’s covenant on Marriage- One wife one husband

TEXT: Gen 2:18-25;

AIMS:

i. to teach the fundamental basis for one husband, one wife and

ii. to present reasons for diverse marriages and possible challenges.



INTRODUCTION: Adam named all the animals but there was none found compatible with him. God decided to fashion a woman of the rib taken out of Adam, to be a suitable helpmate for him. Every marriage relationship today models the first God instituted between Adam and Eve. As we go through this study, we shall see why people prefer to have more than one wife or more than one husband.



STUDY GUIDE:

1. What is the fundamental basis for marriage? How many people were involved in this fundamental principle? Gen 2:21-23 and

2. Mention some of the reasons for polygamy or polygyny and their possible challenges Gen 16:2-3; 29:25-28; 2Sam 11:2-4.

3. From the Bible passage, why did Adam refuse to take any of the animals, for example, the beautiful Zebra to be his wife? Gen 2:20

4. In your opinion, why do you think one man, one wife is the best or ideal form of marriage?



CONCLUSION: God foresaw the aberration that would befall human marriage and so He declared it to be on the mathematical principle of 1+1=1. God had foreseen the dangers of polygamy and other forms of marriage other than monogamy. As Christians, the more we follow God’s principle of 1=1+1, the more we will realize the conjugal bliss of God’s form of marriage in human society.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The Mathematical principle of God for a successful marriage is 1+1=1 and not 1+2=1 or 1+2,3,4,5…=1

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

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 6: Marriage and Covenant with the living God (4)

TOPIC: Principle of God’s covenant on marriage- Male and Female

TEXT: Gen 2:21-24; Matt 19:4-5

 



 

AIMS:

i. to teach the biblical concept of God’s creation of gender and

ii. to teach further the physical and spiritual consequences of disobeying the principle of having male and female in marriage.

 



 

INTRODUCTION: God created mankind with gender difference and the Bible is explicitly clear about God’s involvement of the principle of gender in marriage. Marriage should be between male and female and not male and male or female and female. It is a principle that has been challenged historically and this has raised different global perspectives on marriage that put to test the ideal marriage in Christianity.

The study today will focus on why God created the woman in different gender and how the abuse of God’s divine principle of gender distinction has led to the orthodox or fundamental stand of some Christians who will not accept any forms of marriage that contravene God’s one man, one wife, male and female only marriage.

 



 

STUDY GUIDE:

1. What is the basis for gender difference in God’s creation and in the establishment of the marriage principle? Matt 19:4-6. Mention the factors involved. Gen 2:22-23.

2. What are the grounds for man and man; woman and woman; man, animal; woman and animal marriages, and what challenges do these pose to contemporary society? 2Kings 17:15; Rom 1:20-22; 26-28;

3. What should the Christian’s stand be in the face of these ungodly marital principles as upheld among homosexuals and bestials? – Eph 4:17-18

4. What are the physical and spiritual consequences on the abusers of the godly principle of male and female marriage? Rom 1:28, 32; 2:2

 



 

CONCLUSION: If God created mankind as male and female, and procreation is always through the union of male and female genders, why then is it difficult for some people to uphold this principle but have other preferences? As Christians, we must always see every sexual aberration in marriage as an impediment to the morality of God’s kingdom being upheld and practiced by Christians. Christians should not join the rebels in any these.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Whoever disobeys God’s rules for human marital relationships joins those rebelling against God.

MEMORY VERSE: Matt 19:4-5 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh”?

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 6: Marriage and Covenant with the living God (5)

TOPIC: Abuse of Marriage covenant with the living God- 1- Homosexuality.

TEXT: Gen 18:20-2119:1-11; Lev 18:22; 20:13Rom 1:271Tim 1:10

AIMS:

i. to examine the act or practice of homosexuality in human life,

ii. to establish the fact that God has always prohibited the act and

iii. to re-emphasize the Christian stand on this issue.



INTRODUCTION: From time immemorial, the homosexual act had been an abomination in God’s eyes. The account in Gen 19:5 justifies the character given to this depraved act in the preceding chapter of Gen 18:20, and later in Gen 23:13. As it is a crime, so it is the deepest disgrace to human nature. It is too bad to be described and in its iniquitous nature, it has a name, Sodomy, after the city of Sodom. Homosexual act earns the death penalty in some countries.



STUDY GUIDE:

1. How can you describe the attribute of God in Gen 18:20-21 with reference to Num 14:18 and relate this to the judgment of God on homosexuals? Col 3:6; Rev 21:822.

2. Is homosexual act a recent practice among mankind? Justify with reference to Gen 19:4-5; Jug. 19:22Rom 1:27;  . Why do Christians react to the issue as if it started in our generation? Prov 1:2429; Isa 5:13Jer. 9:6.

3. How will you describe the spiritual infirmities of homosexuals today in the context of the spiritual blindness inflicted on them in Gen 19:9-10Matt 15:14John 3:19

4. What should be the Christian response to the current problem of homosexuals in the church and in the world? Phill. 3:2



CONCLUSION: One of the awful attributes of God is “slow to anger”. Therefore, his patience on homosexuals is not because of impotence but because of His forbearance and readiness to forgive homosexuals, if they will repent and turn to him. Christians must know this fact and seek ways to help save homosexuals without letting their garments as Christians be stained in the process.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: If homosexuals are abominations to God, so they are to His Church!

MEMORY VERSE: 1Cor 6:9 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites”.

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD

SUB-THEME 6: Marriage and Covenant with the living God (6)

TOPIC: Abuse of Marriage covenant with the living God- 2 –Bestiality

TEXTGen 2:20; Lev 18:2320:15-16; Deut. 27:23

AIMS: i. to understand the term bestiality and the biblical perspectives on it and

ii. to show the justified wrath of God on the practices from the biblical context.



INTRODUCTION: Biblically, human beings were designed by God to have sexual relations with humans, male and female, but not with animals. In the creation account, none of the animals were found “suitable” for Adam (Genesis 2:20). Bestiality is a word describing sex between a human being and an animal. When you say bestiality, you hear the echo of “beast”, which is a good clue to its meaning as unnatural and perverse.

The fact that the animal involved was to be put to death (Leviticus 20:15-16), despite the fact that it was probably “innocent,” indicates how bestiality was seen as wickedly perverse. The act is an abomination to God and abuse of God’s principle for marriage between a biologically (male) man and (female) woman.



STUDY GUIDE:

1. Define “bestiality” in your own understanding.

2. Read Gen 1:2628Psalm 8:6. If the Bible says that God made mankind to have dominion over all animals, how then can or will mankind subject their princely humanity to mate with animals? 1Sam 2:12Pro 1:30-32Rom 1:28;

3. What can you say about any human being mating with an animal? Are they human or not? Justify your answer. Rom. 1:21-22.

4. Why did God command that both the animal and human found in the act of bestiality act be put to death? Lev 22:20-25Rom 12:1. How can we abstain from this perversion as Christians? Rom 12:1-26:13.



CONCLUSION: Have you ever pondered on the fact that no animal had ever defied God’s creation principle to solicit for sexual intercourse with man? It is human beings who subject themselves to animals for sexual perversion. What do you call them? It cannot be right for human beings, especially Christians, to have a passion for sexual relationships with animals. Those engaged in this perversion are on the path to destruction unless they repent and turn from this wicked way.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: God’s Word forbids men from having sexual intercourse with animals.

MEMORY VERSE: Deut. 27:23 “Cursed is the one who lies with any kind of animal.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!”.
