Day 168

GOOd Morning and a good day too! Grandma has some Bible lessons for you to start off with today. Let's hope she can get it all done as she wishes.
 
1 Timothy is the first book to be covered as follows:
 
"Whom...did God inspire to write this book? The apostle Paul wrote 1 Timothy. This is the tenth of Paul's thirteen books in the Bible.
 
To Whom...was this letter first written? Paul wrote this book as the first of two letters to his helper Timothy. Acts 16:1-3 tells how Paul and Timothy had met.
 
When...was this letter written? This book was written about AD 65 from Macedonia.
 
How...does 1 Timothy show us God's love? God had called Timothy into the ministry of preaching his Word. This book reminds Timothy that his office as a pastor was to proclaim God's saving love. Verse after verse reminds readers that Jesus came to save sinners--even the worst. This is what Christian preachers are to announce to their congregations, because God wants all people to know it and be saved.
 
What...special messages does this book give us? The book of 1 Timothy shows Timothy how Christ's saving work shapes his life as a Christian leader. Christ's love is the message he should preach. The book shows what kind of men should become pastors, and it guides the way a congregation should run and care for its members.
        ...are some important teachings in this book?
Beware of false teachers.                                1 Timothy 1:3-11
          God can use
 even the worst sinners.                                   1 Timothy 1:12-20
Roles for men and women.                               1 Timothy 2:8-15
           Church leaders.                                    1 Timothy 3:1-16
          Be an example.                                     1 Timothy 4:11-16
   The Christian family.                                      1 Timothy 5:1-2
         Don't love money.                                    1 Timothy 6:3-10
        Advice to the rich.                                     1 Timothy 6:17-21"
 
Now read 1 Timothy and do the following exercises from Faith Alive:
 
"Did You Know? 1 Timothy 1:2
Who was Timothy?
Timothy was a young companion of Paul. Paul trained Timothy on his missionary journeys. Later Timothy became a leader in the church. Two New Testament books are letters that Paul wrote to Timothy.
 
Did You Know? 1 Timothy 1:13
Can bad people become good?
Yes. Paul was once a violent man who persecuted Christians. When God saved him, he changed. God can save the worst sinners and make them truly good people.
 
Did you Know? 1 Timothy 3:2
What kind of people should church leaders be?
Church leaders should be good examples of what Christians are to be like. They should be respectable, hospitable, gentle, not lovers of money. In 1 Timothy 3 Paul lists other important characteristics of church leaders.
 
Let's Live It! 1 Timothy 4:12
Be An Example--Read 1 Timothy 4:12. What five ways can even young people be good Christians and set an example for others?
Because Jesus loves everyone, we want others to see what he's like when they see us. Make a poster to remind you. Put it on your wall. It might say something like this:
     I Will Be An Example
 
     In speech, I will not gossip or swear.
     In life, I will do what pleases God.
     In love, I will care about others.
     In faith, I will pray and trust God.
     In purity, I will choose what is right.
 
Did You Know? 1 Timothy 5:11
What was the list of widows?
The list of widows was a list of Christian women who had no family. The church supported them and gave them special work to do in ministering to other Christians.
 
Let's Live It!
Being Content--Make a list of all your favorite possessions. Then read 1 Timothy 6:6-10. What's really important in life is having Christ as Savior. All the earthly things we really need are enough to eat and wear. People who think they need more things to be happy are usually unhappy and discontented no matter how much they get.
Look back at the list you made. Draw a line through each thing that you don't need in order to be content."
 
Next read 2 Timothy and do the exercises in Faith Alive, beginning with the introduction.
 
"Whom...did God inspire to write this book?
The apostle Paul wrote 2 Timothy. This is the eleventh of thirteen books by Paul appearing in the Bible.
 
To Whom...was this letter first written?
Paul wrote this book as a second letter to his helper Timothy.
 
When...was this letter written?
This book was written about AD 67, when Paul was in prison a second time.
 
How...does 2 Timothy show us God's love?
The book of 2 Timothy shows how God's love keeps and strengthens believers to the very end. As Paul wrote this letter, he knew he would soon be killed for preaching about Jesus. But he did not regret what he had done; he was not discouraged. He knew there was a "crown of righteousness" (2 Timothy 4:8) waiting for him soon in heaven. This is the same promise God gives to all who trust in Christ.
 
What...special messages does this book give us?
This letter encourages Timothy to cling to Christ his Savior and to keep sharing Jesus with others. It is like Paul's last will and testament. These are the very wishes every Christian parent would most want to leave with his or her children.
        ...are some important teachings in this book?
Guard God's truth against all errors.                          2 Timothy 1:13-14
Christ will always be faithful to us.                            2 Timothy 2:8-13
All Scripture is inspired by God.                               2 Timothy 3:14-17
Preach God's Word always!                                     2 Timothy 4:1-5"
 
Now for 2 Timothy's exercises in Faith Alive:
 
"Words to Remember2 Timothy 1:10 (Christ) has brought life and immortality to light.
 
Let's Live It!2 Timothy 1:5, 13-14
What You Heard--Paul taught Timothy about Jesus, but long before Timothy had learned about God at home. Who has taught you about Jesus? Your parents? Teachers? Pastor? Ask each to tell you the most important thing they have taught you--something they want you to remember all your life. Write down what they tell you. Look often at what you've written to remind yourself.
 
Did You Know?2 Timothy 2:3
What are Christians like?
God helps Christians to be like soldiers, who obey their commander; like athletes, who train hard to win; like farmers, who work hard and are willing to wait for their rewards.
 
Words to Remember2 Timothy 2:11 Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him.
 
Words to Remember2 Timothy 3:15 The holy Scriptures ...are able to make you wise for salvation.
 
Life in Bible Times
A Leafy Crown--People who won athletic events did not get money or gold. The prize was a wreath made of leaves to wear on their head. In 2 Timothy 4:8 Paul wrote about a crown that would last longer than a crown of leaves. He said he had "finished the race" and would be receiving a "crown of righteousness."
 
Words to Remember2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be equipped for every good work.
 
Words to Remember2 Timothy 4:19 The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
 
Next is Titus with the following introduction:
 
How...does Titus show us God's love? Titus shows that godly living is always motivated by God's love. Simply telling people what to do will not make them really holy. Only the kindness and love of God enables us when we are baptized--when God saves us by washing away our sins, making us new people with the Holy Spirit inside.
 
Whom...did God inspire to write this book? The apostle Paul wrote Titus. This is the twelfth of the thirteen books by Paul to appear in the Bible.
 
To Whom...was this letter first written? Paul wrote this book as a letter to a helper named Titus. Titus had traveled with Paul as a missionary (Galatians 2:1-3). Now he was a pastor overseeing the churches on the island of Crete, near Greece.
 
When...was this letter written? This letter was written about AD 65 from Corinth.
 
What...special messages does this book give us?
By reminding Titus of God's kindness and love, this book equips him to be a good teacher and leader. It describes what a faithful pastor is and how people should support each other in a Christian congregation. It also has one of the clearest teachings on Baptism in the entire Bible.
        ...are some important teachings in this book?
Qualifications of a pastor.                                        Titus 1:5-9
Hold firmly to true doctrine.                                      Titus 1:9-16
How Christian men and women,
   young and old, workers and others
   are to live.                                                            Titus 2:1-15
Baptism saves us by creating faith
    in our hears.                                                        Titus 3:3-7"
 
Now follow through and do in Faith Alive:
 
Words to RememberTitus 3:5a He saved us...because of this mercy.
 
Words to RememberTitus 3:5b He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
 
Let's Live It!Titus 3:4-7
Rebirthday Party--Birthdays are wonderful occasions to thank God for the gift of life. What about your rebirthday, the day you were born again? Read Titus 3:4-7. At Baptism, you were reborn. The Holy Spirit created faith in Jesus in your heart. (Being born again means believing in Jesus.) And when you became a believer, your sins were washed away and God gave you eternal life. That's worth celebrating! This year, find out your Baptism date, and have another party--a rebirthday party."
 
Next is Philemon and of course read it as following is the introduction:
 
"Whom...did God inspire to write this book? The apostle Paul wrote Philemon. This is the thirteenth and last of Paul's books in the New Testament.
 
To Whom...was this letter first written? This book is a personal letter sent to Philemon, a member of the Colossian church.
 
When...was this letter written? Philemon was written about AD 63 while Paul was in prison in Rome.
 
How...does Philemon show us God's love? Paul's request to Philemon is an illustration of Christ's love for us. Paul offers to pay the debts of Philemon's runaway slave, Onesimus, and asks Philemon to welcome him back. This is exactly what Jesus did for us. Jesus paid the debt of our sin and pleads for us before the heavenly Father. Therefore, God welcomes us back.
 
What...special messages does this book give us?
By God's power, Christians encourage each other to do the right thing out of love for Christ, not by making each other feel guilty. Paul has an important point to make, but he makes it very gently. He could demand that philemon forgive Onesimus. Instead, he simply asks Philemon to do what he as a Christian should want to do.
        ...are some important teachings in this book?
 
Love for others comes from faith in Christ.                                    Philemon 5
Christians do good works out of love,
       not by being forced.                                                      Philemon 8-9,14
Christ is our go-between with the Father.                                    Philemon 1-25"
 
What does Faith Alive have to say:
 
"Words to Remember
Philemon 1:7 Your love has given me great joy and encouragement.
 
Words to Remember
Philemon 1:8-9 Although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do yet I appeal to you on the basis of love.
 
Words to Remember
Philemon 1:18 If he has done you any wrong or owes you anything, charge it to me."
 
Then read Hebrews starting with the Introduction:
 
"Whom...did God inspire to write this book? The author of Hebrews is unknown.
 
To Whom...was this letter first written? This book is a letter sent to Jewish Christians.
 
When...was this letter written? The book of Hebrews was written sometime before AD 70, when the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed.
 
How...does Hebrews show us God's love?
Hebrews explains in great detail how Christ brings us together with God. In the Old Testament, priests acted as go-betweens for God and the people. The priests offered sacrifices for the people, prayed for them, and carried out God's ceremonial law on their behalf. All this law without sin, he sacrificed himself on the cross, and he prays to God the Father for us.
 
What...special messages does this book give us?
Hebrews shows that God has finally and fully revealed himself to us in Christ Jesus. Christ is the fulfillment of everything written and practiced in the Old Testament. It was also faith in him that makes many Old Testament people inspiring examples for us.
        ...are some important teachings in this book?
Christ is superior to angels.                                      Hebrews 1:1-14
Jesus is a human being like me.                               Hebrews 2:5-18
A warning against unbelief.                                       Hebrews 3:7-19
Jesus understands how I feel.                                   Hebrews 4:14-16
Jesus is our high priest.                                           Hebrews 5:1-10
God keeps his promises.                                          Hebrews 6:13-20
Christs's blood is the sacrifice
                       for our sins.                                      Hebrews 9:11-28
Heroes of faith looked to Christ.                                 Hebrews 11:1-40
      God disciplines us.                                             Hebrews 12:1-13"
 
Now move on to the exercises in Faith Alive:
 
Did You Know?Hebrews 1:4
How is Jesus greater than angels?
Jesus is God's Son. Jesus created the angels, and the angels worship him.
 
Did You Know?Hebrews 4:9
What did the Old Testament Sabbath stand for?
The Sabbath was the day of the week for rest. That reminds us of heaven, where we will have rest from all troubles.
 
Did You Know?Hebrews 5:10
What did a high priest do?
The high priest prayed to God and offered sacrifices to God for the sins of the people. Jesus is the high priest God has appointed for us. He himself is the sacrifice for sin.
 
Let's Live It! Hebrews 4:14-16
He would Understand--Have you ever not said something to your mom or dad or pastor or teacher because you figured they wouldn't understand? Maybe you had questions about girls or boys, and it seems like so long since they thought about things like that. Maybe you knew you'd sinned, but you were ashamed to tell anybody. Nobody would understand.
Well, you might be surprised. Some old folks understand better than you think. But you know who always understands. Read Hebrews 4:14-16. Jesus has been there. He was tempted like we are. He just never sinned. Because he understands, we can approach him to talk about anything. He always listens to our prayers, and he always answers in his Word. Sometimes he even uses your mom or dad or pastor or teacher to deliver the message.
 
Did You Know?Hebrews 7:11
Who was Melchizedek?
Melchizedek (Mel-KIZ-a-deck) was a priest of God during Abraham's time (Genesis 14:18-20). Later, only descendants of Aaron could be priests. Jesus is like Melchizedek, a priest even greater than Aaron's descendants.
 
Life in Bible Times-Anchors--In ancient times every ship carried several anchors. They were used not only to anchor a ship in harbor, but to slow it down in a storm. Anchors were made from different materials at different times: stone, iron, lead, Most had two flukes (the part of an anchor that hooks in the ground).
 
Let's Live It!Hebrews 7:24-25
Jesus is Alive--Read Hebrews 7:24-25. Jesus is alive and he prays (intercedes) for you! Because Jesus is alive, he will take care of you always.
Here is something to do to remind you that Jesus is alive. At your local Christian bookstore, get small pictures of Jesus praying. Put one on the mirror where you brush your teeth. Put one in your room near your bed. Put one in your school notebook. Think of other places to put the pictures where you will see them during the day and will remember that Jesus is alive.
 
Did You Know?Hebrews 8:1
What did Jesus do as our high priest?
Jesus offered himself as the sacrifice for all our sins. Old Testament priests offered animals as sacrifice for sin. More sin required another sacrifice. But Jesus' perfect sacrifice covers our sin once for all.
 
Words to RememberHebrews 10:10 We have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
 
Let's Live It!Hebrews 11:1-40 Faith Hall of Fame--Cooperstown, NY, Canton, OH, Springfield, MA, If you like sports, you'd love to visit a hall of fame.
Hebrews 11 is sometimes called the Faith Hall of Fame. Read it and picture each person. If browsing through plaques of Ruth and Mays and Aaron inspires you, this really will!
 
Did You Know?Hebrews 11:39 What difference does faith make? Faith helps believers do great things. Hebrews 11 lists many heroes of faith. It tells what they were able to do because they trusted God.
 
Let's Live It!Hebrews 12:5-11 Punishment, Right or Wrong?--Pretend that you are a parent. Your children tell you they don't think it's right for you to punish them. What can you find in Hebrews 12:5-11 to help you explain why punishment is good instead of bad?
Ask a parent to read this passage too. Talk about these rules for good punishment: Punish me because you love me, not because you are mad at me. Punish me to help me do better, not to get even with me for what I've done.
 
Words to RememberHebrews 13:5 Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
 
Words to Remember Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
 
That will be all for this day. Grandma will move on to the next.
