Determination—Deciding it’s worth it to finish what you started.
“Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time, we will gather a crop if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9
I Need to Know; Philip and the Man from Ethiopia
Keep going even when you have questions.
The Ethiopian man in the story had questions about God. What did he do when he had questions? Did he give up and stop asking, or did he keep going to find the answer?
Do you have questions about God? What do you do when you have questions?
Philip listened to the Lord by going up and sharing the good news with the Ethiopian man, even when it was hard. Who is someone in your life that God wants you to share the good news with?
May you be empowered by the Holy Spirit to share the good news of Jesus Christ! May you continue to ask questions about who God is, and to not give up, even when things get hard.
Feet on Mission
What you need:
Construction Paper, Sharpie / Marker, Paint, Paper Plate, Washcloth
What you do:
At the bottom the piece of paper, have your child write this verse:
“And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15
Put the paper on the floor in front of your child.
On the paper plate, pour the paint colors you would like to use.
Have your child dip their foot into the paint, then place their foot on the construction paper, making a footprint.
Use the washcloth to clean the paint off of your child’s foot.
Use this picture as an opportunity to discuss how Philip was sent by God to share the good news with the Ethiopian man. Just like Philip, God wants to use THEM to share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with their friends and family.
Hang this picture up where your child can see it as a reminder that they are on a mission for Jesus!
