CC Students – Lesson Notes – Sunday 7/31/22
Yesterday in our BSG at 9:15, we discussed how God loves His Creation, all of it, not just us humans.
His Creation sings praises to Him! He desires for us to worship and praise Him, but if we do not, He does not change. He stays the same. All His Creation will sing praises to Him, even the stars and the rocks and the flowers and the animals. Be still in nature. You can hear some of them. We cannot hear them all, not like He does, but they are praising Him. We can know that for sure according to His Word.
We looked yesterday at Psalm 19:1-6
Review that verse this week and see how they are praising Him. Break this passage apart and see how it applies to us and how we praise. Look at how it shows us how He feels about all His Creation.
For those who wish to spend time studying more – here is the theme passage for the lesson. Dig in and see what God is showing you, His Creation, made in His Image, about this passage. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you see and hear from God.
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time nare not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for othe revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation pwas subjected to futility, not willingly, but qbecause of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that rthe creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that sthe whole creation thas been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have uthe firstfruits of the Spirit, vgroan inwardly as wwe wait eagerly for adoption as sons, xthe redemption of our bodies. 24 For yin this hope we were saved. Now zhope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we await for it with patience.
26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For bwe do not know what to pray for as we ought, but cthe Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And dhe who searches hearts knows what is ethe mind of the Spirit, because7 the Spirit fintercedes for the saints gaccording to the will of God. 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together hfor good,8 for ithose who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he jforeknew he also kpredestined lto be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be mthe firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also njustified, and those whom he justified he also oglorified.
