This plan was provided by Michael Fracker.

1. Have a volunteer read Genesis 17:1-6.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
  2. Why would God present Himself to Abrah as El Shaddai – the Almighty God- at this time?
  3. Personal Application: How does believing in the Almighty God give us comfort and trust when we are weak and frail and old? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your friends states, “Do you think God calls people today to leave position, wealth, plans and home to do a work for Him in spite of our human frailties? How does one know if it is God’s call?” How would you respond to your friend?

2. Have a volunteer read Genesis 17:7..

  1. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
  2. Why did God change Abram’s name to Abraham?.
  3. Personal Application: What kind of “new name” do you think God is going to give you in heaven? What might that name reveal about you and your character? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your relatives states: “Why does God call His covenant an everlasting covenant with Abraham and his descendents forever? Wasn’t that the Old Covenant that has been replaced?“ How would you respond to your relative?

3. Have a volunteer read Genesis 18:19.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
  2. What important facts do we see about Abraham and why God chose him for the covenant promises?
  3. Personal Application: Is leadership and teaching important factors in the family life as well as church life? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your neighbors states, “Obedience seems to be a big factor in Abraham’s walk with God, but obedience doesn’t save anyone; only faith does. So what is the relationship of obedience to faith since we are told we are not saved by faith and works, but by faith only?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

4. Have a volunteer read Revelation 14:6,7.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
  2. How is the message of Revelation 14 similar to Abraham’s covenant?
  3. Personal Application: What specific responsibility do we have in living and giving the three angels messages to the world?” Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: Think of one person who needs to hear a message from this week’s lesson. Tell the class what you plan to do this week to share with them.
