Family Devotion: The Apostle to the Gentiles

Here is the family devotion from this Sunday’s lesson on the conversion of Saul. God transformed a persecutor into His choice messenger to the Gentiles. It was no accident that God chose a man who, among other qualities, had both Jewish and Gentile relationships. Paul was a Jew by birth but a Gentile by citizenship. He was the ideal man to proclaim that, in Christ, there is no difference between Jew and Gentile. Students should know that God desires to work through people, no matter what they might have done if only they surrender to...

Family Devotion: An Amazing Conversation

Here is the family devotion from this Sunday’s lesson from Acts 8:26-40. The Holy Spirit had been at work in the Ethiopian and arranged an encounter between him and Philip. Students should recognize how the Holy Spirit worked in the life of Phillip and to look for arranged encounters with people who need ministry.  “This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading: ‘He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and as a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he did not open his mouth.’” Acts...

Family Devotion: God’s Perfect Plan

Here is the family devotion from the Sunday’s lesson, God’s Perfect Plan. As Christ-followers, our lives always pan out exactly how we planned and in just the timing that we want. We go where we want, when we want…ok, not exactly. God’s plan is infinitely above ours and His timing is always perfect even when we don’t understand what He is doing in the middle of the circumstance. Continue to trust Him and believe Him. As Christ-followers in Acts 8 were dispersed around the world, they became a part of God’s sovereign...

Family Devotion: The Martyrdom of Saints

Here is the family devotion from this Sunday’s lesson on the first recorded martyr, Stephen. A true follower of Christ is willing to follow and sacrifice even if that means death. This lesson focused on understanding that following Christ cost people their lives and the decision for students to follow Christ regardless of the cost.   “But he [Stephen], being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and said, ‘Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of...

Family Devotion: Shared Ministry

Here is the family devotion from this week’s lesson. We cannot do it alone. In Acts 6:1-7, the apostles realized that and appointed an additional 7 leaders to help accomplish the work of the ministry. Students should learn that it isn’t up to church staff to complete all the work but the ministry of all believers to accomplish work for the Kingdom.   “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians...

Family Devotion: An Invincible Church

Here is the family devotion from this Sunday’s lesson: An Invincible Church. One of the themes of Acts is “the unstoppable Gospel.” We must acknowledge that Satan works inside the Church and tries to divide it, disgrace it, and destroy it. But as the Church operates in the power of the Holy Spirit, nothing will be able to hinder its advancement. In this lesson, the Jewish leaders were filled with jealousy at the success and popularity of the apostles. The apostles were thrown in jail, but an angel of the Lord delivered them....

Family Devotion: Integrity

Here is the family devotion that accompanies this week’s lesson on integrity. God’s people must honor Christ with their motives, actions, and character. Pray you’re your student would understand how seriously God took the dishonesty of Ananias and Sapphira and that they would commit to the kind of integrity that does not hide personal motives or bad character.   “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct.” 1 Peter...

Family Devotion: One Community

Here is the family devotion from this week’s lesson. True community happens when people unselfishly participate in one another’s lives. Pray that your children will understand that everything they have is from God, that they will give sacrificially to meet the needs of other believers, and that they will be selfless toward their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.   “Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another.” Romans...

Family Devotion: Gold and Silver I Do Not Have

Here is the family devotion that goes along with this Sunday’s lesson. Based out of Acts 3, students learned the need to be sensitive to the opportunities of the Holy Spirit. Students learned about impacting both the physical needs and the spiritual needs of those they encounter as they are going about their business. “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day...
