“Lesson 1: ‘This Is My Work and My Glory’” Old Testament Class Member Study Guide (2001), 2–3
“Lesson 1,” Old Testament Class Member Study Guide, 2–3
Study the following scriptures:
Moses 1:1–11. Moses sees God and talks with him face to face. Moses learns that he is a son of God in the similitude of the Only Begotten of the Father.
Moses 1:12–23. Satan confronts Moses; Moses casts him out.
Moses 1:24–39. God appears again and teaches of his work and glory.
What did Moses learn about God from the experiences described in Moses 1:1–7? What did Moses learn about himself? What difference can it make in our lives to know that we are children of God, created in the similitude of his Son?
How did Moses receive strength to resist the temptations of Satan? (See Moses 1:18, 20–21.) How did Moses get Satan to leave? How can prayer strengthen us to resist temptation? What else can we do to gain this strength?
Even though God has created worlds and people that are numberless to us, he assured Moses that he knows them all (Moses 1:35). How have you come to feel that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know you individually and love you?
Why is it important for us to know what God’s work and glory is? What are some specific ways we can assist him in this great work?
