Wow – what a story this past weekend.  One day when Paul was teaching, Lydia was in the crowd and heard the story of Jesus.  Lydia knew who God was but had never knew Jesus or his love for her.  Not only did Lydia become a Christ follower but she told her whole family about Jesus and because of Paul’s obedience to spreading the gospel and Lydia’s excitement for spreading the good news, her whole family became followers of Jesus.  What does this mean for us today?  For starters, who are we supposed to tell about Jesus?  Pray about who that person is and then act this week.

 


 

This Week We’re Discovering

Next, we head to Acts 16:11-15 and meet a woman named Lydia. Paul and Silas were traveling around and telling people about Jesus. In the city of Philippi, they headed down to the city riverbank where they thought they’d find people worshipping God. While they were there they met Lydia, a wealthy business owner. Lydia used her gift of hospitality to make Paul and Silas feel welcomed. She used her gifts to help others feel loved.

Bottom Line: God made you to love others. God has given each of us gifts that we can use to show love to others. We pray that kids will realize that part of what it means to be created in God’s image includes reflecting His love to the people in the world around them.
