MEMORY VERSE: “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” – John 17:3 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 17:22-27 (King James Version)

22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Within all of us, there exists a strong desire to be known and to know others. More importantly, there is a void in every individual – a quest to know their creator, even if they are not professed believers in God. The apostle Paul expressed his desire to truly know God (Phil.3:10). It is, therefore, important to address the issue of seeking and truly knowing God.

LESSON OUTLINES:

  1. SEEKING GOD IS INEVITABLE
  2. KEYS TO TRULY KNOWING GOD

1. SEEKING GOD IS INEVITABLE

A. Our desire to seek and know more of God is the essence of true life (Jn.17:3; Jer.50:4).

ALSO, READ RCCG Sunday School Teachers Manual | 12 September 2021 (Lesson 2)

B. The thoughts of God should be paramount in our minds because they will determine the value and direction of our lives (Ps.48:9; 63:6).

C. Seeking God, then, is an ongoing responsibility and privilege for all Christians (Job 5:8).

D. Therefore, the Scriptures admonish us to seek God:
i. Wholeheartedly (Deut.4:29).
ii. Early in life (Ps.63:1; Eccl.12:1).
iii. Continually (Ps.105:4).
iv. With joy (Ps.70:4).
v. By prayer and supplications
vi. With fasting (Dan.9:3).
vii. Through His righteousness (Matt.6:33).
viii. By studying His word (Jn.5:39).

RCCG Sunday School Teachers Manual 11 September 2022 (Lesson 2)

E. Assuredly, those who seek God under the conditions stated above shall:
i. Find Him (Jer.29:13).
ii. Be satisfied (Matt.5:6).
iii. Understand all things (Prov.28:5).
iv. Not lack any good thing (Ps.34:10).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: The class should mention other ways through which we can seek God.

2. KEYS TO TRULY KNOWING GOD

A. In an attempt to know God, we must:
i. Receive Jesus Christ into our lives (Jn.1:12): Jesus makes it clear that He alone is the way to Heaven and personal knowledge of God (Jn.14:6-9).
ii. Understand that the Bible is God’s word and a revelation of Himself, His promises, and His will (Jn.1:1; Ps.119:105). The Bible is essentially a love letter written to us from a loving God who created us to know Him intimately (2Tim.3:14-17).
iii. Be committed to obeying what we read in the Scriptures (Tit.1:16; Jn.15:14). We were created to do good works (Eph.2:10). Not only must we read and understand God’s word, but we must also apply doctrines obediently and remain faithful (Jam.1:21-22).
iv. Be committed to prayer, personal devotion, fellowship with brethren (Heb.10:25) and, always worship God in spirit and in truth (Jn.4:23-24).
v. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us always (Rom.8:14, 26-27).

B. Then, our lives can be filled with God, and we can experience knowing Him intimately.

RCCG Sunday School Teachers Manual 11 September 2022 (Lesson 2)
