Paul’s Third Journey
Acts 18:18- 21:16
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation. Romans 1:16
Paul shared the gospel with people who didn’t know Jesus, and he encouraged believers in the church to keep loving Jesus. As people heard the message of salvation, God changed their hearts and they turned away from their sin. The good news about Jesus is powerful and life-giving.
FAMILY TIME #1
Read Acts 18:18- 21:16. Paul told so many people about Jesus, and he encouraged people who believed in Jesus to keep loving Him. God changed people’s hearts, and they turned away from their sin. The good news about Jesus is powerful.
Did anything stop Paul from telling people about Jesus?
FAMILY TIME #2
Read Acts 21:10-14 to your family. Talk about Paul’s willingness to suffer and even die for the good news about Jesus. Talk about some ways Christians in your neighborhood, city, or country face trouble for being disciples of Jesus. Pray for Christians all around the world to be encouraged.
FAMILY TIME #3 Explore first aid kits
Provide adhesive bandages, crutches, gauze, toy doctor’s kit supplies, and other first aid items for the children to use on each other or on baby dolls. Encourage the kids to treat each other’s “wounds” with gentle hands.
Discuss •When Paul traveled, he met with some believers and preached to them about Jesus for a very long time. A boy named Eutychus was sitting near a window and he fell asleep. Eutychus fell out of the window, and he died. But God healed Eutychus through Paul, and Eutychus was alive again.
Paul taught people about Jesus wherever he went. Some people were happy to hear Paul’s message about how they could be forgiven of their sins by trusting in Jesus. Some people did not like Paul, and they did not like his message about Jesus. How sad! Did anything stop Paul from telling people about Jesus? No, Paul told about Jesus even when he was in danger.
