OPENING PRAYER: Father, please let torment and fear be chased out of our marriages through the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name. (Scroll down for RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL 6 JANUARY 2019 HYMN)

MEMORY VERSE: “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” – 1 John 4:18 (scroll down for RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL 6 JANUARY 2019 HYMN)

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 6 January 2019)

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

In the previous lesson, we learnt about erotic/sexual love and friendship love as being crucial for a successful marriage. We shall further consider two(2) types of love that must be practiced in godly marriage. These are ‘affectionate’ love and ‘sacrificial/1 Corinthians 13:1-13 love.

TEXT REVIEW: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 “- “NO SUBSTITUTE”
The following are not substitute for charitable love:

ii. Gift of prophecy. Vs. 2
iii. Understanding of mysteries. Vs 2
iv. All knowledge. Vs 2
v. All faith. Vs 2
vi. Welfare grace or philanthropy. Vs 3
vii. Sacrifice of body. Vs 3

Those who claim to have genuine love based on the above parameters had better understood that their bases for love was NOTHING Vs 2 and Vs 3. They are “nothing” because:
i. Prophecy will fail. Vs 8
ii. Speaking in tongue will cease. Vs 8
iii. Knowledge shall vanish away. Vs 8

The true and lasting thing which does not fail is charity. Therefore, those who do not want to fail should embrace charity Vs 9-10
