Topic of the Month—God’s People Offer Praise

This unit has four lessons that give examples of persons who celebrate God. Both Moses and the prophet Miriam sing songs of praise for God’s mighty acts. David dances before the ark as he brings it into Jerusalem. Bartimaeus glorifies God in Mark. In Acts, after their experience of Pentecost and Peter’s sermon, early believers enter into a life of praise for God’s redemption through Jesus Christ.

 

September 5—Praise with Music

Devotional Reading; Exodus 15:11-21

Background Scripture: Exodus 15:11-21

Teacher: First Lady Jacqi Henry
 

People compose poems and songs for celebrations. After deliverance from Egyptian slavery, Moses and Miriam led the people in praising God in song.

 
 
September 12—Praise in Dance
Devotional Reading: 2 Samuel 6:12-19
Background Scripture; 2 Samuel 6:1-5, 14-19

Celebrations can be diverse in form and action. King David expressed his celebration of God by dance.

 
 
September 19—Praise by Expecting and Following
Devotional Reading: Mark 10:46-52
Background Scripture: Mark 10:46-52; Luke 18:35-43
Teacher: Reverend Shirelle DeJesus
 

People react to life’s challenges differently. Bartimaeus’s bold faith in Jesus resulted in receiving his sight.

 
 
September 26— Praise for Salvation
Devotional Reading: Acts 2:37-47
Background Scripture: Acts 2:32-33, 37-47
Teacher: Dr. Renee Sanders-Lawson
 

Celebrations reveal one’s way of seeing and being in the world. In that regard, do celebrations do more to unify divided people or to reveal a unity that already exists? The first Christians’ praise of God coincided with their “having favour with all the people” as “the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”
