RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS’ MANUAL

SUNDAY 6TH OF AUGUST, 2023

LESSON FORTY NINE (49)

TOPIC: DYNAMICS OF GRACE (PART 1)

OPENING PRAYER: Almighty Father, please help me to remain in You and enjoy the grace of God throughout my life in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE PASSAGE: Ephesians 2:4-10.
[4]But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
[5]Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
[6]And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
[7]That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
[8]For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
[9]Not of works, lest any man should boast.
[10]For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
MEMORY VERSE: “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” Titus 2:11.
LESSON INTRODUCTION: The word translated ‘Grace’ in Hebrew is chen,’ which means to bend or stoop in kindness to another as a superior to an inferior (Gen.6:8).
The Greek word for ‘Grace’ is ‘charis” and it
connotes something beyond the ordinary course of what can be expected and therefore commendable (1Cor.15:10). When used in reference to God, it is the benevolent action of Him stooping down to us in kindness to reach us in our needs and convey upon us a benefit. His grace has been termed ‘unmerited favour’ but it is more than an attitude of favour or mercy.
LESSON AIM: To study the dynamics of grace.

a.Understand the meaning of grace.
b.Discover the requirements to receive grace.
