Explore the Bible: God Provides Deliverance

Has God placed you in your current circumstances so you can join Him in helping someone else? What risks are you willing to take in order to save someone else? As we look at this week's Explore the Bible study, God Provides Deliverance, these are a few of the questions we need to ask ourselves and discuss as a group.

I have provided the following ideas in the teaching helps. Feel free to use or modify as you feel is best for your group.
  • Handout: For Such a Time as This. I suggest you make copies and place in chairs prior to the session or give to adults as they enter. The handout is located on the last page of the teaching plan.
  • Learn how to pronounce: Hathach (click to listen)
  • The Story of Sir Nicholas Winton: I have provided multiple video links describing the story of Sir Nicholas Winton. Nicholas saved 669 Czech children, most of them Jewish, from the Nazis on the eve of WWII. This is one video example that gives you a moving example of how one man's decision to take a risk saved the lives of so many.
  • LOOK OUT Video Option: I have also provided another video option for concluding the session. It is a visual demonstration of the song, For Such a Time as This, by Wayne Watson: Click to preview this video.
