Sunday School at a Glance

[2024 Spring Quarter:  Examining Our Faith]

In this quarter, we explore the fullness of faith as a response to God’s desire to be in a re­ relationship with us. To be “faithless” is to turn away from God-to put trust in something (or someone) other than God. The lessons for this quarter ask these questions: Is your faith steadfast? Are you contending for the faith? In the Old and New Testaments, there are as many examples of spiritual fidelity as there are examples of spiritual infidelity. What can today’s Christians draw from these ancient accounts that will help us grow more deeply in faith? The lessons of this quarter guide the learners to a reaffirmation of their confidence in God- because without faith it is impossible to please Him.

Unit I | Faith-FULL versus Faith-LESS

“Faith-FULL versus Faith-LESS,” has five lessons drawn from the books of Jude, 2 Corinthians, 1 Peter, Acts, and Mark that invite learners to turn the challenges of life into opportunities for nurturing a vibrant faith instead of giving up, turning away from God, or rejecting faith. Jude appeals to us to contend for the faith that was once entrusted to the saints. The second letter to the Corinthians warns Christians to examine themselves to make sure that they are living in the faith. Peter urges his readers to defend their faith with humility, gentle­ ness, and reverence. The book of Acts encourages the church to be obedient to the faith, using Stephen as an- example. In the book of Mark, God raised Jesus from the dead and in so doing unlocked the door to Resurrection faith.

Unit II | The Measure of Faith

“The Measure of Faith, “has four lessons drawn from the books of Luke and Mat­thew to discuss the range of Christian faith. Luke cites four friends who went through various obstacles to get their sick friend to Jesus for healing-and when Jesus saw their faith, He forgave and healed the paralytic. Luke looks at the faith of a centurion who amazed Jesus with his faith, and Jesus acknowledged that He had not found such faith in all Israel; Luke identifies a sinful woman whom Jesus forgave because she had much faith; and Matthew identifies a Canaanite woman recognized by Jesus for her great faith.

Unit III | Standing in the Faith

“Standing in the Faith,” has four lessons drawn from the book of Romans that encourage believers to continue standing in the faith. The first lesson indicates that the righteous­ ness of God comes through believers’ having faith in Jesus Christ. The second lesson provides an example from the life of Abraham. The third lesson explores the meaning of being justified by faith, and the fourth lesson traces faith that comes from what is heard through the word of Christ. Thus, those who are called by Christ’s name are encouraged to confess with their lips, believe in their hearts, and stand in faith daily.
