Q1  Lesson  Two  (“Creation  Ordered”)  Connecting  Church  and  Home     One  of  the  first  characteristics  God  reveals  about  himself  is  He  is  Creator.    He  created   everything  out  of  nothing  in  just  six  days.    The  first  chapter  of  John  says,  “All  things  were   made  through  Him,  and  without  Him  was  not  any  thing  made  that  was  made”  (verse  3).    All   that  is  in  existence  was  made  for  His  glory,  and  everything  that  God  created  points  to  Him.       One  of  the  millions  of  reasons  God  deserves  our  praise  is  because  He  created  us,  and  He   created  us  to  praise  Him.    He  displays  His  splendor  to  us  not  only  in  nature,  but  also  through   His  involvement  in  our  lives,  His  Word,  music  or  even  us,  as  his  image  bearers  (Genesis   1:26-­‐2:25).       Next  Sunday,  your  children  will  look  at  how  God  made  man  in  His  image.    This  makes  us   different  from  the  rest  of  creation.    We  can  choose  whether  to  please  God  or  to  not  please   God.    We  often  put  things  in  God’s  place  and  give  them  more  worship  than  we  give  to  God.     Discuss  with  your  family  things  that  you  personally  sometimes  put  before  God.    Also  discuss   what  your  family  may  prioritize  ahead  of  God.    Through  Christ,  we  are  able  to  set  aside   those  distractions  and  chose  to  worship  God  alone  as  He  has  commanded.

  This  week,  spend  some  time  outdoors  with  your  family.    Notice  the  beauty  of  creation  and   verbally  thank  God  for  displaying  His  glory  throughout  his  creation.     Treasure  Verse:  Let  everything  that  has  breath  praise  the  Lord!  (Psalm  150:6)     Pull  out:  When  I  look  at  your  heavens,  the  work  of  your  fingers,  the  moon  and  the  stars,   which  you  have  set  in  place,  what  is  man  that  you  are  mindful  of  him,  and  the  son  of  man   that  you  care  for  him?    Yet  you  have  made  him  a  little  lower  than  the  heavenly  beings  and   crowned  him  with  glory  and  honor.    You  have  given  him  dominion  over  the  works  of  your   hands;  you  have  put  all  things  under  his  feet,  all  sheep  and  oxen,  and  also  the  beasts  of  the   field,  the  birds  of  the  heavens,  and  the  fish  of  the  sea,  whatever  passes  along  the  paths  of  the   seas.    O  LORD,  our  Lord,  how  majestic  is  your  name  in  all  the  earth!    Psalm  8:3-­‐9
