SUMMARY OF LESSONS 7-11
LESSON SEVEN (07)
TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING THE BLESSING OF GOD (GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT)
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 2:8-11
Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
HYMN FOR TODAY: I need thee every hour

BIBLE TEXT: 2 Kings 20:1-5
In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.
Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying,
I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.
And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the LORD came to him, saying,
Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.

LESSON AIM: At the end of the study, they should understand that good health is a blessing from God.
CENTRAL TRUTH: Serving God brings good health.
INTRODUCTION: God desires His people to live in perfect health. In heaven there is no sickness or disease, and God longs for you to
experience heaven’s reality while living on the earth. Jesus has therefore paid the price for our healing and long and good health. All
through the New Testament we see Jesus healing all who came to Him for healing from every manner of sickness and disease, and in the book of Acts we see believers doing the same works Jesus did. Do not tolerate sickness because it will hinder you from serving God. Access good health through Jesus so you can be strong and happy to do the work of the master: He gave us everything on the cross: 1 Peter 2:24
God said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His
commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am
your Healer” (Exodus 15:26).
A. God gives us blessing of healing;
• God takes away all sickness and give us good health Deut 7:15
• Hezekiah was sick, He called on God and he was healed.
• When you serve God, He renews your strength Isa 40:31
• Moses served the Lord till he was 120 years.
B. Natural things that bring good health:
• Regular exercise
• Good food- balanced diet
• Good drinking water
• Enough sleep
• Regular check ups
C. Benefits of good health;
1. Healthy living
2. Living happy without pains
3. Not spending in hospital for treatment
4. Serving God without stress
ACTIVITY: Teacher should lead the teens to discuss things that can bring ill health.
LIFE APPLICATION: You want to enjoy the blessing of perfect health from God, you must surrender your life to Jesus Christ and serve Him.
CONCLUSION: Healing is the blessing of God offered to everyone who believes in Jesus. God wants you strong and healthy. Of course, we are to care for our bodies well with a healthy diet, fresh air, and exercise, but if we get attacked with sickness, disease, or infirmity, we have promises we can stand on for our healing. For anyone to enjoy good health, that person must belong to the Great Physician – The Lord Jesus Christ. Good health is the children’s bread and should not be given to dogs Mark 7:26-30
LESSON NINE (09)
TOPIC:THE WAYS GOD BLESSES A MAN (SPIRITUAL BLESSING)
BIBLE TEXT: Ephesians 1:1-3
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
MEMORY VERSE: EPHESIANS 1:3 ” Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”
HYMN FOR TODAY: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God, Almighty.
LESSON AIM: At the end of the study, teenagers should know how God blesses a man spiritually.
CENTRAL TRUTH: All the blessings of God are spiritual because the spiritual controls the physical.
INTRODUCTION: Blessings are in categories. There are both physical and spiritual blessings. Both come from God through Jesus. Spiritual
blessings are those given to us by God. They are also any good and perfect gift given by God (James 1:17). Spiritual blessings are given by
God to those who are in Christ. We are going to highlight these spiritual blessings and their importance to believers. We all wish to be blessed by God – so much so that many people often pronounce blessings on others, such as: “God bless you”.
A. Importance/benefit of spiritual blessings:
a. It gives an advantage in different areas of life [Daniel 5:12, Daniel 6:3]
b. It promotes prosperity.
c. It equips one in preaching the gospel.
d. Encourages believers in their walk with God [Colossians 2:2-3]
e. They are given to believers to help each other and for the sake of growing the church (1 Cor 12:7-11;1 Peter 4:10).
B. Differentiate and compare spiritual and physical blessings with biblical references and check the following:
Mark 10:29-30, James 1:17, Gen 1:28, John 6:27a
1. Spiritual blessings are eternal – Mark 10:29-30
2. Every good gift both physical and spiritual are from God – James 1:l
3. God commanded us to enjoy these blessings – Genesis 1:28
4. Spiritual blessings do not perish – John 6:27
C. What must you do to have access to these spiritual blessing
• Accept Jesus as your Lord and savior and all the gifts will be yours
• Live a life of obedience Eph 6:1-3
• Work for God by serving at home, school and church
• Pray always 1 Thess. 5:17
LIFE APPLICATION: Look through the beatitudes and see how you can shape your character in each of the beatitudes to see the divine blessings attached to them in your life e.g Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God – Matthew 5:8.
CONCLUSION: God is faithful in all things. He will bless you and take you to heaven if you remain faithful. Walk with Jesus daily. If we yield ourselves to Him, inviting His Spirit to come into our life, He will come. The more you yield, the more He fills. Invite Him to fill you afresh right now. Receive His presence and empowerment by faith.
LESSON TEN (10)
TOPIC: THE WAYS GOD BLESSES A MAN (LONG LIFE)
BIBLE TEXT: Isaiah 38:1-5
In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.
Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD,
And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.
Then came the word of the LORD to Isaiah, saying,
Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.
MEMORY VERSE: ‘With long life will I satisfy him and shew him my salvation’ Psalm 91:16
HYMN FOR TODAY: Jesus, My Lord, My God, My All
LESSON AIM: At the end of the study, the teens should have full understanding of the source of long life.
CENTRAL TRUTH: Nothing prolongs life except God because He is the source of life.
INTRODUCTION: God has blessed man with long life freely because He wants us to have a full, satisfying and long life, which is possible if we will pay attention to His Word. Abraham lived a full life and was rich in all things when he died at the ripe old age of one hundred and seventy five. Caleb at aged eighty-five was eager to achieve more for God. Moses began to lead Israel through the wilderness in his eighties, and in his older years his eyes did not grow dim. Everybody desires long life and people can do anything or give all they have to live long. The blessing of long life is for every child of God to claim freely in Christ Jesus.
A. Lead the teens to discuss long life using John 11:25-26
– Jesus has power over life and death because He is the creator.
– When Jesus resurrected, He defeated death.
– When you receive Jesus as Lord and savior, He gives you a new life.
B. Benefits of long life:
– You will see your children’s children Psalm 128:6
– You will be wise Prov. 4:10
– You will serve God to fulfilment if you know Him early Eccl. 12:1-3
– You will be full of joy that you finish well
C. How to enjoy long life:
– Love God and serve Him like Hezekiah lsaiah 38:5
– Pray and ask God for it. Life is the breath of God Gen 2:7
– Hezekiah asked and God gave him, so ask and you shall receive.
– Life is part of our heritage in God, desire it Psalm 91:16
– Long life is a blessing from God.
LIFE APPLICATION: You need God to enjoy good and long life. You need to give your life to Jesus so that He can take over the affairs of your life. Begin to serve God from today!
CONCLUSION: Your life is tied to your usefulness to God. Be useful to God and you will live long. God is the author of life and He gives freely to those He desires to give.
