LESSON FIFTY (50)

TOPIC: PARADISE

SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN
O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Thy friendship suits me well,
Both young and will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessings

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds be black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?

INTRODUCTION: Paradise is a place of blessing where the righteous go after death. The word, paradise, is usually used as a synonym for “heaven” (Rev. 2:7). Paradise is a place of rest for believers in Christ. It is a place where believers are united with Christ and His Father (Lk.23:43). Jesus used “paradise” as a synonym for ‘heaven’. The apostle Paul wrote of someone (probably himself) who “was caught up to paradise” (2 Cor.12:4). In this context, paradise obviously refers to Heaven.
