Unit 1: In Awe of God
The lessons of this quarter examine biblical teachings of various aspects of worship. First will come a consideration of Scriptures that emphasize the basis for worship: God’s absolute worthiness to receive it. The author of Hebrews begins his book with a marvelous description of the Father and the Son, showing both to be worthy of our adoration. Numerous Old Testament texts come together to create a powerful picture of the Son, whom the angels themselves worship.
Worship by angels is seen clearly in the third lesson, the famous account of the heavenly host saying, “Glory to God in the highest” in the presence of the shepherds near Bethlehem ( Luke 2: 14 ). Rounding out our studies will be lessons that address God’s worthiness to receive worship in light of His roles in creation and commanding the forces of nature.
