LESSON FORTY ONE(41)
TOPIC: BENEFITS OF A GRATEFUL HEART 11: FAVOUR

BIBLE TEXT: Luke 1:43-55
[43]And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
[44]For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
[45]And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
[46]And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
[47]And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
[48]For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.


[49]For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
[50]And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
[51]He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
[52]He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
[53]He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
[54]He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;
[55]As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 5:12 - "For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield."

LESSON AIM: To teach the teenagers that having a grateful heart brings favour.

CENTRAL TRUTH: God will cover you with favour if you praise Him.

INTRODUCTION: An experience of favour is when God steps in a situation to make a difference. Favour can be divine - a situation where God singles one out for special treatment. One of the benefits of gratitude is favour. As God delights in our praises, He continues to favour us.

* All-round favour - Gen 39:2-4; 21-22

WHAT THE FAVOUR OF GOD WILL BRING FOR YOU
* It will give you unexpected blessings from unexpected people and places.
* Whatever you have lost will be restored - Job 42.
* Whatever you touch will prosper - Gen 39:2-4.
* God will lift you and make you the head - Deut 28:13.
