This Week We’re Discovering

In Acts 10, Peter was a Jewish follower of Jesus. Cornelius was a Roman commander. These two were unlikely friends even in the best of circumstances. But through a couple of visions, these two men were about to cross paths. And through this meeting, Peter discovered the mission Jesus gave the disciples was way bigger than he originally thought.

Bottom Line: Keep going even when the job is bigger than you think. There are times we start a job and soon realize that it will be a much larger endeavor. Our first instinct might be to give up all together, but we need to keep going. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can push through and show determination right up until the end.

This Month’s Memory Verse

When Paul wrote this verse to the church at Galatia, he encouraged the followers of Jesus to show determination and keep doing good. We may not see results right away, but in time, God will help us see that finishing what we started was worth all of the effort.


Extra Memory Verses:

Week 1: Hebrews 12:1b-2a  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. 

Week 2: Psalm 18:32  It is God who arms me with strength  and keeps my way secure.

Week 3:Psalm 31:24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.

Week 4: Philippians 1:6b being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
