This Quarter Chip Prins is leading the Junior High Sunday School Class through a study called Knowing The God Who Is. Included in this study are weekly devotional helps. I’ll post these the week leading up to Sunday School. Please encourage your son or daughter to work through these, even better work through these with your son or daughter.
Q. How do we honor God’s name?
A. We show our love for God by reverently treating his name with awe through worship, trust, and obedience.
