June Children Worship: The Apostle Paul - Seeing the Light

Discovery Point: 
The Apostle Paul - Seeing the Light
Today our Bible lesson was about the time Saul went to Damascus to arrest anyone who followed Jesus. However, Saul is blinded by the light of the Lord along the way. Instead of persecuting the Christians, he turns his life around begins following Jesus and preaching the Good News. We leaned from this lesson that like Saul, we must acknowledge Jesus as Lord and follow Him wherever He leads us. Acts 9:1-19

Memory Verse:

"The Lord gives sight to the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous." Psalms 146:8
Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will not only help him or her remember the verse, but it will also help to reinforce what he or she learned during class

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Take some time this week to talk abut truth and consequences. When we do things that Jesus would not appreciate, God may step in and allow some consequences to take place in order to help us change our ways to or get back onto the right track. Discuss how God might get our attention if we have a tendency to steal, to lie, to cheat, to fight, to be selfish, or to be argumentative.

Daily Prayer:
Dear Lord, remove the blindness from my eyes that is keeping me from knowing Your Will and help me be sensitive to Your guidance. Like Saul on the road to Damascus, stop me when I start to go down the wrong path or when I start to put others things before You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
