Sunday School Lesson 927 Gaining Assurance of Salvation

LESSON 8: GAINING ASSURANCE OF OUR SALVATION BY TRUSTING IN GOD’S PROMISES

Verse center:. 1 John 5:13:

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Have the students write this verse out to take home.

Review center: Make a new game: Cut out a 7-7 1/2” circle from card stock, use a plate or compass. Fold in half, then quarters, then eighths. Open and Draw lines on these fold lines so you have 8 pie pieces. Write numbers 1-8; one on each one. Make another circle of cardstock. Cut out a 1/8 pie piece from it the same size as the ones on the other pie, but not all the way to the center; making a straight line 1“ long before getting to the center. Push a brad through the center of the second pie in the center and push it also through the first pie in the center. Number the verse cards from lesson 1-8 , set them out on the table. For the game; When it is a person’s turn, they turn the circle away from them, moving the top circle’s hole to a number without looking; and then turn it over and read the number that shows. Then the student has to read that verse or for older students, quote the verse. Have a stack of pennies or buttons, students get one if they can read or quote the verse. The teacher will determine if they have to quote it. Whoever gets the most buttons/pennies wins.

Visual Aids: Make a poster of I Jn 5:13 and Rom 11:6

Poster or chalk/marker board with 7 words on them.

Aims: That the older students could explain in their own words what the underlined words of the lesson mean. They would memorize the underlined part of the verse.
