1 Peter 1:3 (25 kb)


May 22 and May 29, 2021

Introduction: This week’s lesson focuses on how faith and hope fit together and the importance of placing our faith and hope in the Lord as we walk in this life and try to do the will of our Father in Heaven.
There are many things in life in which people place their hope. Some hope they win the lottery. There are those that hope that their jobs will fulfill them and bring them a happy life. First let us ask ourselves, what is hope exactly?
Hope is looking forward to with desire and trust in expectation that everything will work out for the best.


Dear Father,
We come to you today in praise of who you are and in knowing that you are worthy to be praised. There is none like you. There never has been and there never will be. You are Almighty, Sovereign God and in you we place our faith, trust and our hope. We know and understand that you alone are worthy of praise and all other things would fail us.
Father we thank you that we can trust you and that you are hope. We thank you that you are love and that you are mercy and grace. We ask you to help us to always remember to walk in your ways. Teach us to love your ways and your laws. Help us to keep them in our hearts and to always trust, hope and have faith in you because You are a faithful and wonderful Father and you cannot fail. Thank you for your mercy and understanding. We worship you today and hope in your words and in the soon coming of your Son Jesus. Help us to listen and follow the instruction of Your Holy Spirit that dwells in us so that your will be done in each and every life that prays this prayer now. In the wonderful, precious name of Jesus we ask, pray, and worship you. AMEN.

Hope in Jesus Christ, by CindyGirl

Hope in Jesus Christ

Did you know faith and lasting hope fit together. They are woven together like a beautiful tapestry. This only happens when we place our faith, and our hope in the ONE who is able to keep us, and that is The LORD JESUS CHRIST! It is my prayer that as you read, you begin to understand the importance of placing your faith in and your hope in The LORD. He is the only One that can fulfill every last promise He has made and the only One that will NEVER fail! Praise HIS name!

Hope in Jesus Christ

Hope in Jesus Christ

“My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On CHRIST the Solid Rock I stand, All other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand.”

Edward Mote, 1797-1874

Joseph's Coat of Many Colors, by Lisa DeVinney >

- Joseph 1 - Joseph's Coat of Many Colors, by Lisa DeVinney

This week we are beginning a new series on the life of Joseph (son of Jacob), in the Old Testament. We’ll start right out with the familiar story of Joseph’s coat of many colors; and how dangerous jealousy and hatred can be.

Joseph 1 - Joseph's Coat of Many Colors, by Lisa DeVinney

Abraham’s grandson, Jacob, had                          wives.

  • Jacob loved his wife                          more than his other wives.
  • Rachel’s oldest son,                          , was Jacob’s favorite son.
  • Jacob showed his favoritism by giving Joseph a special                         .
  • Joseph’s brothers hated him so much that they wanted to                     him.
  •   True or False
    1. When going to meet his brother Esau, Jacob put Rachel and Joseph in front. 
    2. Jacob loved all of his children in the same way. 
    3. Jacob was excited to hear about Joseph’s dream.
    4. Joseph gave his father bad reports about his brothers. 
    5. Joseph’s brothers planned to kill him and say an evil beast had gotten him. 
    6. Reuben planned to rescue Joseph and take him back to his father. 

    Devotional Poem:  Hatred

    Hatred, like an evil cancer, eats away your heart;
     Keeps your mind from thinking straight, and tears your life apart.
    Take it to the Lord in prayer, and He’ll take it away.
    But please don’t wait and let it grow…take care of it today!
