Part 3:The Holy Spirit’s Role in Discerning the Will of God
This week we sang and discussed Henry van Dyke’s hymn, “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.” After that we did a deep-dive into the pneumatology (study of the Holy Spirit) and talked about his role in the Christian life and how he interacts with the Christian’s understanding of God’s will. Lesson given on October 27, 2019.

Part 2:Will Through the Biblical Story & Discerning God’s Will
This week we continued our discussion of the will of God, after singing “Angels From the Realms of Glory” by James Montgomery. The discussion spent a large amount of time walking through the dispensations in the Bible and discussing how God’s will is communicated in each one. We then talked about the Christian and some practical ways we, today, should operate in relation to God’s will. Lesson given October 20, 2019.
Part 1:Defining Terms and Surveying the Text
This week we sang and discussed the hymn, “Hiding in Thee” by William Cushing and Ira Sankey. After that, we started a new series all about the Will of God. This week was laying the groundwork of defining terms and getting a bird’s-eye-view of the topic from a Biblical worldview. Lesson given on October 13, 2019.
