Adult Lesson Manual Summer 2021
STANDING IN FAITH The metaphor of standing is used often in Scripture to depict being resolute and determined in the faith. We cannot properly battle the enemy when we are seated, unengaged, and stagnant. Instead, we are urged by the apostle Paul to stand! This quarter begins with a study of Paul’s Pastoral Epistles, includes a study of Old Testament heroes who stood for God in trying times, and concludes with the message of the Minor Prophets.The Adult Lesson Manual provides a lesson for each week in the quarter with commentary to assist the teacher in preparing for and presenting the lesson. The first page of each lesson provides a Focus Thought, a Focus Verse, and the printed verses in the Lesson Text. A Culture Connection begins the second page of the lesson and is designed to show how the lesson applies to today’s culture. An outline follows, leading into the lesson commentary. Questions are interspersed throughout the lesson to foster reflection and application of Scripture.
