The Present Word Spring Quarter, March-May 2018 (13 Sundays)
The quarter focuses on ways God’s people have acknowledged the greatness of their God. The quarter begins with guidance for following God. Then, with Easter, the quarter turns to ways Jesus provided a channel for giving God glory and honor. The quarter concludes with a look at times when the Hebrew people sang praises to God.
Unit I, “Follow in My Ways,” provides four sessions, drawn from Genesis and Second Chronicles, showing how Abraham and Solomon acknowledged God by following God’s guidance.
Unit II, “All Glory and Honor,” has five sessions. The sessions from Luke and John, deal with how Jesus’ resurrection opened the way to honor God. The visions in Revelation praise God with majestic symbolism.
Unit III, “Give Praise to God,” has four sessions that emphasize the people’s response by bringing offerings and dedicating their lives to God’s work found in Exodus, Leviticus, and 2 Corinthians. The unit concludes with one session drawn from Psalms and Hebrews that rejoices in God’s reconciling action on behalf of the people.
