What is truth? In an age where it is becoming increasingly normal to lie in order to get what you want, how can children know what to believe? Kids already struggle with truth because their mind’s imagination can seem so real to them. Imaginary friends can seem just as real to them as a real person.

So how can we anchor them to the truth? Through the Bible. Several men, including Paul, wrote down what they saw Jesus do while He walked among us. As part of the trinity, Jesus is incapable of lying. Everything Jesus says is truth. It’s this truth that Paul shared with the people of Rome. This week, I spy someone who tells the truth. Jesus is how we anchor our kids to the truth.

Here’s a snapshot of what we’ll spy this week:
Bible Story Focus: I spy someone who tells the truth. (Paul in Rome • Acts 28:11-31)
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 back down and enjoy the Bible Story Video.

Worship – I Believe In Jesus
Worship – Shout!
Bible Story Video – Paul in Rome

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.)

Bible Story Games, Crafts, & Activities
Memory Verse with Hand Motions
Coloring Pages
Discussion/Application

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
