Sharing God with people can be tough. There are so many stories in the Bible to choose from that it can seem overwhelming. But there is one basic story that can show the true awesomeness of our God – God made everything. You can’t get any bigger or more awesome than that.
This week, as we spy someone who made everything, we’ll see how Paul revealed God to the people of Athens by teaching them how God made everything. Not just the sky, animals, and sun, but God made people too. In fact, God made people to know Him. Paul sparked curiosity in the people of Athens and this allowed him to continue with sharing all about Jesus—and the people believed.
Here’s a snapshot of what we’ll spy this week:
Bible Story Focus: I spy someone who made everything.(Paul Teaches in Athens • Acts 17:16-34)
Memory Verse: “These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.” John 20:31, NLV
Key Question: Who can believe in Jesus?
Bottom Line: I can believe in Jesus.
Let’s start with worshiping God by singing and dancing to our two songs. Next, get your binoculars ready as we sit down and enjoy the Bible Story Video.
As you finish the video lesson and worship, the materials below will help reinforce the story as well as bring Jesus to their level. These can be done in any order but I recommend the Discussion/Application last (this is the part that really brings Jesus to their level.)
As we wrap up, I’d like to leave you with one of the kids’ favorite ‘good-bye’ songs:
Let Me See Your Alligator
Thank you for the opportunity to partner with you in bringing the Bible alive for your kid(s). It is our goal to make 3 John 1:4 a reality.
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” 3 John 1:4
