Week 2

Memory Verse:  2 Corinthians 4:6

Reading #1Genesis 1:1-3

Questions: What words would you use to describe the kind of power that says “Let there be light,” and there’s light?  Why do you think Paul references that same power in our memory verse, 2 Cor. 4:6?

Reading #2 Psalm 68:32-35

Questions: What does it mean to “ascribe power” to someone?  What kind of description does David give of God, before reminding us that he’s talking about the same God who “gives power and strength to His people?”  How does that description affect the way you think of the power He gives you?

Reading #3John 1:1-18

Questions: If Jesus is the same Word of God that spoke the universe into existence, how does that change the way you view the written Word of God?  What does it say about our condition that even though Jesus made us, we don’t recognize Him as God?  What does our memory verse, 2 Cor. 4:6, say is necessary in order for us to believe Jesus is who He says He is?

Reading #4Hebrews 1:1-12

Questions:  If Genesis 1:1 answers the question, “Where did everything come from,” how does Hebrews 1:3 answer the question, “Who is Jesus?”

Hymn of the Week: How Great Thou Art (Boberg/Hine)
(We are also learning this one in Hawaiian)

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power through out the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee:
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

E mele au I ka Ho’ola e,
He nani no, He nani no!
E mele au I ka Ho’ola e,
He nani no, He nani no.

Since this is such a popular hymn, I thought it might be fun to give folks an opportunity to listen and sing along. Not bEing very computer savvy, the only way I know how to do that is through YouTube. So I enlisted the help of my boys and we previewed about a dozen renditions before they voted to add this one to our page. While many others had far more sophisticated (and I think beautiful) musical renderings the boys didn’t like the accompanying images because they included things like “babies” or “girls with flowers”. The following video was approved because all the pictures were from space…or maybe they’re just little country-music fans at heart…Alan Jackson…Really guys???
