SCRIPTURE FOCUS
Psalm 100:1-5

ICEBREAKER QUESTIONS
How can joy become characteristic of our life?

What is sincere (true) worship?

BONUS QUESTION
Why is self-sufficiency an enemy for the believer?

KEY VERSE
Psalm 100:3

LESSON NUGGET
If you can’t serve the Lord with gladness you shouldn’t try to serve Him at all. God does not like griping servants. God does not like griping givers either. If you can’t give to the Lord with a cheerful heart, don’t give to Him at all. He loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). It is a mockery to God for a person to complain about their service to God. If you can’t do it with gladness, don’t do it.

How can we guard against the temptation to rebel against the Lord during the good times?

BONUS QUESTIONS

What causes people to forget God’s faithfulness?

Why is it important to tell of the goodness of the Lord?

KEY VERSE
Psalm 107:6

LESSON NUGGET
How easy it is to take God’s mercy for granted! Ingratitude seems to be natural to the sinful human heart. No matter how extreme our calamity, God is able to break through to help us. He is loving and kind to those who are distressed. “Let the redeemed of the LORD tell their story.” What has God done for you? Is there someone you can tell?

SCRIPTURE FOCUS
Psalm 84:1-12

ICEBREAKER QUESTIONS
Why is being in God’s presence so important?

How can we renew our desire to worship God and have a positive attitude toward going to church?

Why is it sometimes most important to attend church on those days when we don’t feel like going?

KEY VERSE
Psalm 84:4

LESSON NUGGET
The Psalmist expressed his desire for God. This desire for God is one of the most basic drives within man, rivaling even our desire for air, water, and food. We are created with a vacuum that can only be filled by God. We may try to fill it with other things, but what we are really thirsty for is Him, and we won’t be satisfied until we come into fellowship with Him, allowing Him to satisfy the deepest need of our lives; His presence.

Today’s lesson is a call to praise the Lord. Where should we praise Him? Wherever you are, praise the Lord. Why should we praise Him? Because of what He does and who He is. How should we praise Him? The whole person should be one living sacrifice that praises the Lord. Who should praise Him? Everything that hath breath.
