Praise God With Joy

International Sunday School October 3, 2021 Fall quarter #5

Psalms 100:1-5 NIV  A psalm. For giving grateful praise. Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.  (2)  Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.  (3)  Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.  (4)  Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.  (5)  For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Acts 2:32-33 NIV  God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it.  (33)  Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.

Acts 2:32-33 NIV 

Acts 2:37-47 NIV  When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”  (38)  Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  (39)  The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”  (40)  With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.”  (41)  Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.  (42)  They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.  (43)  Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.  (44)  All the believers were together and had everything in common.  (45)  They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.  (46)  Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,  (47)  praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Mark 10:46-52 NIV  Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging.  (47)  When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”  (48)  Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”  (49)  Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.”  (50)  Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.  (51)  “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”  (52)  “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

2 Samuel 6:1-5 NIV  David again brought together all the able young men of Israel—thirty thousand.  (2)  He and all his men went to Baalah in Judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the Name, the name of the LORD Almighty, who is enthroned between the cherubim on the ark.  (3)  They set the ark of God on a new cart and brought it from the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab, were guiding the new cart  (4)  with the ark of God on it, and Ahio was walking in front of it.  (5)  David and all Israel were celebrating with all their might before the LORD, with castanets, harps, lyres, timbrels, sistrums and cymbals.

2 Samuel 6:14-19 NIV  Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the LORD with all his might,  (15)  while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets.  (16)  As the ark of the LORD was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD, she despised him in her heart.  (17)  They brought the ark of the LORD and set it in its place inside the tent that David had pitched for it, and David sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before the LORD.  (18)  After he had finished sacrificing the burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD Almighty.  (19)  Then he gave a loaf of bread, a cake of dates and a cake of raisins to each person in the whole crowd of Israelites, both men and women. And all the people went to their homes.
