About the Quarter
The study this quarter focuses on Gods gift of faith, and how we respond to it both personally and communally. The sessions from the Old and New Testaments illuminate how Gods grace impacts the lives of all believers, as demonstrated by their obedience, gratitude, and holy living.
Unit I, God Is Faithful, has five sessions that tell the story of Gods faithfulness. In Genesis, God is faithful to Abraham by blessing his nephew Lot, and God is faithful in answering Hannahs prayer in 1 Samuel. In Exodus, God is faithful to the people of Israel by providing manna when they complain of hunger. In Numbers, Caleb and Joshua remind the Israelites of Gods faithfulness. Later, God hears their cries and forgives, although the people continue to rebel.
Unit II, Responses to Gods Faithfulness, has four sessions which explore reactions to the many benefits accrued to humans because of Gods grace. Deuteronomy teaches that faith requires a response of obedience. The story of Elijah and the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings shows that faithful obedience saves Elijah, the widow, and her son. Lukes Gospel tells about gratitude for Gods faithfulness in the anointing of Jesus and the healing of the centurions servant.
Unit III, Faith Leads to Holy Living, has four sessions that examine letters to early churches that tell them how to live as faithful followers of Christ. Second Corinthians tells the people to examine themselves to see if they are living in faith. First Thessalonians urges Christians to be positive examples of faith. First and Second Peter teach that faith requires holy living and goodness.
