RCCG 2020/2021 ZEAL (AGE 13-19)
TEENS TEACHER’S MANUAL
SUNDAY 6TH OF JUNE, 2021
LESSON FORTY (40)
TOPIC: BE AT PEACE WITH OTHERS
BIBLE TEXT: Matt 5:6; Rom 14:12-19
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.
So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.
Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way. The Law of Love
I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
Yet if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with your food the one for whom Christ died.
Therefore do not let your good be spoken of as evil;
for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.
Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.
MEMORY VERSE: Heb 12:14 “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord”.
