Lesson Introduction

Within all of us, there exists a strong desire to be known. And to know others. More importantly, there is a void in every individual – a quest to know their creator, even if they are not professed believers in God. The Apostle Paul expressed his desire to truly know God (Phil. 3:10). It is, therefore, important to address the issue of seeking and truly knowing God.

a. Understand that there is a part of man that longs to know his/her creator.

Lesson Outline 1: Seeking God is Inevitable

A. Our desire to seek and know more of God is the essence of true life (Jn 17:3; Jer. 50:4). 

B. The thoughts of God should be paramount in our minds because they will determine the value and direction of our lives ( Ps. 48:9; 63:6). 

C. Seeking God, then, is an ongoing responsibility and privilege for all Christians (Job 5:8). 

D. Therefore, the Scriptures admonish us to seek God:

I. Wholeheartedly ( Deut. 4:29).

ii. Early in life (Ps. 63:1; Eccl. 12:1).

iiii. Continually (Ps. 105:4).

iv. With joy (Ps.70:4).

v. By prayer and supplications.

vi. With fasting (Dan. 9:3).

viii. Through His righteousness (Matt. 6:33). 

viii. By studying His word ( John 5:39). 

E. Assuredly, those who seek God under the conditions stated above shall:

I. Find Him.  (Jer. 29:13).

ii. Be satisfied ( Matt. 5:6). 

III. Understand all things (Prov. 28:5).

iv. Not lack any good thing (Ps. 34:10). 

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: The class should mention other ways through which we can seek God.

 

LESSON OUTLINE 2: Keys To Truly Knowing God

A. In an attempt to know God, we must :

I. Receive Jesus Christ into our lives (Jn. 1:12): Jesus makes it clear that he alone is the way to Heaven and personal knowledge of God. (Jn. 14:6-9).

ii. Understand that the Bible is God’s word and a revelation of Himself, His promises, and His will ( Jn. 1:1; Ps. 119:105). The Bible is essentially a love letter written to us from a loving God who created us to know Him intimately (2 Tim. 3:14-17).

III. Be committed to obeying what we read in the Scriptures ( Titus 1:16; Jn. 15:14). We were created to do good works (Eph. 2:10). Not only must we read and understand God’s word, but we must also apply doctrines obediently and remain faithful (James 1:21-22).

 

iv. Be committed to prayer, personal devotion, and fellowship with brethren (Heb. 10:25). and, always worship God in spirit and in truth (Jn. 4: 23-24).

v. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us always ( Romans 8:14; 26-27).

B. Then, our lives can be filled with God, and we can experience knowing Him intimately. 

 

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should share with the class keys that have increased their knowledge of God.

 

SUMMARY: Seeking God is Inevitable, and there are ways to truly know God.

CONCLUSION: If we genuinely hunger and thirst to know God, He will reveal Himself to us.

 

EVALUATION: Students should state the key to truly knowing God. 

CLOSING PRAYER: Father, empower me to pay the price to truly seek and know You. 

ASSIGNMENT: Prayerfully follow the guidelines in today’s lesson and work on Yourself to seek God daily (No Mark).
