MEMORY VERSE: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

BIBLICAL PASSAGE: Genesis 1:1-5
1. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

2. And the earth was formless and empty; and darkness was over the face of the abyss. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3. And God said: Let there be light! And there was light.

4. And God saw the light, that it was good, and God separated the light from the darkness.

5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

INTRODUCTION: Some people, called atheists, intentionally disbelieve or deny the existence of God. The Bible calls them ‘fools’ (Ps. 41:1). Others believe in the existence of many gods and consult them according to particular needs; they are called polytheists. The Bible unequivocally teaches that there is only one God (Elohiym or Elohim) who created all things, sustains all things, and transcends all things. That’s what we believe as Christians. It is worth noting that we do not worship or serve the same God with people of other religions who also believe that there is only one “God”. Who is our God and what makes him unique?

LESSON PLANS
1. OUR GOD IS THE UNCREATED CREATOR
2. OUR GOD IS ONE

1. OUR GOD IS THE UNCREATED CREATOR
*Question 1*: Why is our God the uncreated creator?
*Answer*: The teacher should underline the reasons why our God is the uncreated creator (Col. 1:17; Ps. 90:2), as follows:

As the Bible tells us,
I. We believe that there is only one God who created heaven and earth (Gen 1:1).

ii. Our God is the Creator of visible and invisible creatures (Col. 1:16).

iii. Our God created all living things (humans, animals and plants) and non-living things (sun, moon, rivers, stars, mountains, etc.) –
Ps. 8:3; John. 1-1-3.

vi. In our God, every creature receives life (John 5:26; Gen. 2:7).

v. Our God created and controls the times and the seasons (Gen. 1:14; Dan. 2:21a).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should mention why our God is the uncreated creator.

2. OUR GOD IS ONE.
*Question 1:* How unique is our God?

Note: The teacher should first allow students to answer the questions in their own words before emphasizing the following points which are exclusive to our God.

*Answer: Our God is unique in that he has attributes that other gods do not have.
The uniqueness of our God is evident in many of his attributes.
I. Our God is the Supreme Being and the Sovereign of all that is (Ps.103:19; 115:3).

ii. He is the Self-Existing One (Isaiah 45:5-6).

iii. Our God is perfect (Ps. 18:30) in holiness (Lev. 11:44; Ex. 15:11).

iv. He is unique in his power (Ps. 62:11), his goodness (Exodus 34:6) and his wisdom (Rom. 11:33).

v. Our God is everywhere – Omnipresent (Jer. 23:24),

*Question 2:* What other unique attributes does our God have?
*Answer:*
I. Our God is Almighty – Omnipotent (Rev. 19:6)

ii. Our Omniscient – Omniscient God (1John 3:20).

iii. Our God is a spirit (John 4:24; 2Cor. 3:17).

iv. Our God is all light (1Jn. 1:5) and glory (Ps. 19:1).

v. Our God is love (1Jn. 4:8, 16) and loves us with everlasting love (Jer. 31:3).

vi. The sovereignty of our God is expressed in the fact that he does whatever pleases him (1Chron. 29:11; Ps. 115:3). No one can question him (Isaiah 29:16; 45:9).

vii. Our God is eternal (Deut. 33:27; Rom. 1:20).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students need to distinguish between “our God” and other gods
