LESSON OUTLINES

LESSON OUTLINE 1: DESCRIPTION OF THE UNGODLY

Teacher should ask the students the following questions:

1. Who is the ungodly?

A. The Psalmist describes the ungodly as the reverse of the righteous both in character and condition (Psalms 1:4). This means:
They are led by the counsel of the wicked (Prov.16:27).
They are in the way of sinners (Prov. 4:14-15).
They sit at the seat of the scornful (Prov.19:28).
They have no delight in the law of God nor even think of it (Romans 1:28).
They bring forth no fruit but grapes of Sodom (Romans 1:29-32).

B. Also, the ungodly are described like ‘the chaff which the wind driveth away’.
This means:
They are no of worth at all in God’s account, no matter how highly they value themselves (Isa. 17 13-14).
They are vain and empty without the knowledge of God. (Psalms 10:4; 14:1).
They have no substance in them (Nahum 2:10).
They are easily driven to and fro by every wind of
doctrine and temptation of Satan (Hebrews 13:9; James 1:14-15).
They have no steadfastness (2 Peter 2:14-15).
They have no root, moisture, greeness not fruitfulness (Mark 4:5-6).
They are destitute of all that is good (Romans 7:18; Proverb 17:20a).
They are sensual, not having the Spirit of God (Jude 19).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should look inward and rate themselves whether they are godly or not.

LESSON OUTLINE 2: DIVINE JUDGEMENT OF THE UNGODLY

1. Question: What will be the end of the ungodly?

A. Answer: On the Day of Judgement:

The ungodly shall be found guilty (Psalm 9:17, Romans 1:18).
They shall bow their head in shame and confusion and all their pleas and excuses shall be overruled as frivolous (Psalms 44:15; Proverb 3:35).
Their future state will be determined by an irreversible sentence (Luke 13:27).

B. Also, ‘….not sinners in the congregation of the righteous’ means:
They will be driven away from the presence of God into everlasting destruction (Job 21:17; Hosea 13:3).

2. Comparing the righteous and the ungodly.

Psalms 1:6 tells us that:
The righteous is blessed because God knows his ways. God approves and He is well pleased with the ways of the righteous because He leads, guides and orders all his steps under the influence of grace. (Psalms 37:23). Therefore, the way of the righteous shall prosper and end well (Psalms 37:18).
God is angry with the ungodly (Psalms 7:11) because the very way they have chosen and resolved to walk naturally tends towards destruction (Proverb 19:29, 14:2). All they do is offensive to Him, therefore, their way shall perish. (Psalms 37: 20; Jeremiah 12:3).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: The class should discuss what they can do so as not to partake in the doom of the ungodly.

SUMMARY: Having understood who the ungodly is, believers should strive to remain godly in order to avoid partaking in the doom of the ungodly.

CONCLUSION: The activities of the righteous are wide open to God. He punishes the ungodly and rewards the righteous.

EVALUATION: What are the characteristics of the ungodly?

CLOSING PRAYER: Father, uproot every seed of ungodliness in me.

ASSIGNMENT: Describe the ungodly in five (5) simple ways.
