PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The teacher should allow the Assistant Teacher to review the previous week’s lesson.

MEMORY VERSE: “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,” – Titus 2:11 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Ephesians 2:4-10 (KJV)\


4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


LESSON INTRODUCTION: The word translated ‘Grace’ in Hebrew is ‘chen,’ which means to bend or stoop in kindness to another as a superior to an inferior (Genesis 6:8). The Greek word for ‘Grace’ is “Charis” and it connotes something beyond the ordinary course of what can be expected and therefore commendable (1Corinthians 15:10). When used in reference to God, it is the benevolent action of Him stooping down to us in kindness to reach us in our needs and convey upon us a benefit. His grace has been termed ‘Unmerited favour’ but it is more than an attitude of favour or mercy.


The teacher should identify five things God did for the believer through Christ in reference to the passage.

i. …………….
ii. ……………
iii. ……………
iv. ……………

i. Grace is God’s favour towards the unworthy or His benevolence on the undeserving (Romans 5:8-10)

ii. Grace is God’s favour translated into action that releases the enabling power into our lives (1 Corinthians 15:10).

iii. Grace is God’s gift of salvation for mankind. (Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11)

viii. Grace is the ability to do exploits (Daniel 11:32; Philippians 4:13).

ix. Grace is the appearance of kindness and love of God our Saviour towards man (Titus 2:11 3:4).

C. The teacher should identify some significant differences between the law in the Old testament and grace in the New Testament as stated below:

i. The law blessed ‘the good’ in the old testament but grace saves ‘the bad’ In the new testament.

ii. The law accuses and convicts the offenders in the old testament but Grace cancels bonds and relieves the debtor (Rom. 6:14).

D. The teachers should out that the difference between mercy withholds a punishment we deserve; grace gives a blessing we do not deserve.

The teachers should enumerate the following ways by which grace can be received as indicated below:

i. By accepting God’s love towards all men (John. 3:16; Romans 5:8)

ii. By believing in the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9-10) through God’s mercy and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit (1 Timothy 1:13; Hebrews 4:16; Matthew 9:13).

v. By loving the Lord Jesus with all our hearts (Ephesians 6:24).

vii. Through the prophetic words of prayer contained in the bible or spoken to us by our Spiritual headstand fellow believers in Christ (Psalm 107:20; Acts 20:32; 2 Timothy 4:22; 1 Thessalonians 1:1).

The class should discuss the benefits of grace upon the believers.

The Almighty God gives grace for those who fulfil certain conditions.

Grace is the spring and source of all benefits received from God (Romans 11:6). God’s grace should not be taken for granted (Romans 6:1-2; Galatians 2:21).

Father, do not let me miss Your grace.

List (10) things you have accomplished by grace (1×10=10Marks).
