In "God's Word for Today" William Snider writes:

Definitions are imperative. Be prepared to define “election,” “foreknowledge,” and “free will.” What was God's intention for the Jews, and how does it compare to His mission for the Church in our day? Discuss the character of God and the necessity of maintaining a proper image of our Heavenly Father. Be prepared to portray the sovereignty of God in a positive and uplifting manner to your class. Consider the reality of our humanity and its reaction to divine sovereignty. How does sovereignty relate to evangelism? How does the sovereignty of God relate to the future of our world? Relate this lesson with the promise found in Romans 8:28.
