Opening Prayer: Father, please keep me from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit. Help me to fear you and keep myself holy.

Previous Knowledge: Teachers should review the previous week’s lesson.

Memory Verse: “Having henceforth these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God” -2 Cor 7:1.

 

Lesson Introduction

God’s desire is that His people will be clean outwardly and inwardly (Zech 3:4). He loves those whose hearts and lives are perfect towards him and has made adequate provision for their all-round cleansing (Heb 10:22). In Psalms 51:7, David prayed for God’s cleansing. We also have a crucial role to play in this matter.
