Who is God? What are His purposes for existence? Why did He create the universe and the life of its inhabitants?
These questions call for intelligent answers, and God has not left us wondering in ignorance. In the Bible are given answers for those who are willing to search for them. Via Jesus, God tells us that it is His will for us to know Him and the answers to these questions.
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3.
The Apostle John reinforces this in the words:
“And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” 1 John 5:20.
Under Divine inspiration, Apostle Paul informs us that the deep things of God are revealed to us by His Spirit.
“And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” 1 Corinthians 2:10.
“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:12.
This the Spirit of Prophecy qualifies even further;
“Only under the direction of the Omniscient One shall we, in the study of His works, be enabled to think His thoughts after Him.” – Education p. 134.
It is indeed a privilege for us to enter into the deep things of God, and find the answers to these questions posed. Hence, it is the purpose of this Sabbath school lesson to search inspiration for the answers that will generate eternal life within us.
May all who study this lesson find such powerful revelations from God that will verily fill the soul with such light that will illuminate all the relationships of life.
