Lesson taught on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at Grace Community Church for Adventure Club (Trackers - 3-5 yr olds) based on Selected Scriptures.

Hello Trackers! Tonight I want to review what we have been learning.

We have been on an amazing adventure learning about the One True God. It is so important to remember what we have learned.

Many times the Lord spoke through his prophet Moses to call the people of God to “remember the Lord your God.”

Sometimes we forget to say “thank you.” Sometimes we forget to pick up our toys after we’ve played with them. Sometimes we forget important things like keys, wallets, phones.

We can forget many things everyday. That is why God said to Israel -

“Do not forget the things which your eyes have seen” (Deut. 4:9).

Tonight what I want us to remember are some of the attributes of God.
Tonight we want to answer the question: WHAT IS GOD LIKE?

In the last few weeks we have discovered:

1. God is Perfect
2. God Does not Change
3. God is Living
4. God is Gracious
5. God uses Evil for Good

CONTENT

God is Perfect (Is. 6:1-8/Isaiah & God’s Throne) –
I have a son named Micah. Do you know what Micah means?
His name means: Who is like our God?

The answer is simply: There is no one like our God. God is perfect.

Jesus said, “Your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matt. 5:48).

Our God is great. Our God is majestic. Our God does not sin, cannot sin. Our God is holy.
Isaiah saw God’s throne. He saw angelic creatures with 6 wings worshiping the One True God. These angelic beings spoke to one another saying, “Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts” (Is. 6:3).
God does not Change (1 Sam. 13, 15, 16/Saul & Israelites) –
How many of you grandparents that live far away? You may only see them once or twice a year.

My wife’s parents live 4 hours away in Merced. We see them a few times a year & they often say, “my, oh my, how the kids have grown!”

The same it is with you. You change all the time. You are always growing. God made us to grow. You are also learning so many things each day.

You change from day to day, but God does not change. God is eternally the same. He does not have a beginning or an end. He does not change His mind. He is never surprised. God says “For I the Lord do not change” (Mal. 3:6).

The people of God changed their mind and wanted a king like the other nations had. Sadly that king did not obey God. Praise God that He had a king in mind all along whose heart was after God.
God is Living (Ex. 3:1-15/Moses & the Burning Bush) –
In this lesson we learned that God has a name, a very special name:

“I AM WHO I AM…This is my name forever” (Ex. 3:14-15)

There is so much that God wants us to know about Him and to remember. His name is important to remember.

God wanted to make sure Moses knew who was sending Him. The One True God was sending him. The living and eternal God who does not change was calling Moses to go to Pharoah & say, “Let Israel go!”

As you turn 4 years old, 5 years old, or 6 years old, I want you to remember God’s name, I AM, the LORD and He has always existed and He will always exist. He will always be with us. He never leaves us and will always keep His promises.
God is Gracious (Ex. 32-34/Ten Commandments) –
Remember we are asking, what is God like?

The Bible tells us “The LORD is merciful and gracious” (Ps. 103:8).

God gives favor to those who do not deserve it. We don’t deserve His kindness. All of us have sinned against God and His law.

God is compassionate. He looks down from heaven and He knows you and I are helpless without Him.

You need help tying your shoes, you need help picking out what clothes you wear. You need help in life. Above all you need His mercy and grace in your life!
God uses Man’s Evil for Good (Ex. 37, 39-50/Joseph) –
You are all very young. You are beginning to see that there is much wrong in this world. You are beginning to realize that there are mean things that others do to us and worse, you are sometimes not so nice.

But God knows all of this and He uses all things, even bad things, to bring about His good. Joseph said to his brothers,
“you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good” (Gen. 50:20).

What you are to do is to cling to God. Your job is to know God.

CONCLUSION

My beloved little ones, I am so glad you are here learning about what God is like. It’s our prayer that you will know the One True God and serve and love Him all the days of your life.

We serve an awesome God. He is kind, loving, and He promises to be with His children always.

Let us pray.
