Day Two: Foundation of Forgiveness

July 21

Bible Story

Paul Listened & Obeyed (Acts 26:1-20)

Today’s Point

Jesus loves me no matter what.

Memory Verse

Philippians 1:6 (NIrV) God began a good work in you. And I am sure that he will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns.

In the previous session, the Biblical truth focused on the fact that none of us are good enough to “earn” the love of Jesus. He chooses to love us. Period. Today we go to the other extreme to say that Jesus loves us regardless of our sin. Romans 5:8 says that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!

 Three times in the book of Acts we can read about the conversion of Saul (his Aramaic name) or Paul (his Greek name). In this particular retelling, Paul was in prison, and Governor Festus brought him before King Agrippa to speak because the king was curious about Paul. Paul described his whole story to King Agrippa.  Paul told the king that a bright light appeared, and Jesus told him that he was chosen to spread the news of forgiveness through Jesus to the Gentiles. Paul explained that he had been obedient to the vision and preached a message of repentance in Damascus, in Jerusalem, in Judea, and to the Gentiles.

Paul had done nothing to deserve being chosen by Jesus to share the good news. In fact, Paul later referred to himself as the worst of sinners. (1 Timothy 1:15) However, because Paul was obedient, God empowered him and used him in a mighty way to spread the gospel.

The Gospel Message

Everything we’re studying this week comes down to one central message – that Jesus loves you and paid the ultimate sacrifice to be your forever friend. In this video, David explains what it means to know Jesus and follow him. This video is a great tool to begin the gospel conversation with your own kids at home.
