Paul told many people about Jesus. He walked miles on dusty roads to cities near the coast. He and his helpers sailed on boats in the sea. Paul told thousands of people about Jesus and His love. Sometimes people didn’t like Paul coming to see them. The crowds would hurt him and send him away from their town. Sometimes Paul was put in jail for preaching about Jesus. One time, Paul and his friend Silas were put in jail. In jail, their feet were chained to heavy blocks of wood. Paul and Silas were not afraid. They prayed and sang songs to God. Then the jail began to shake—it was an earthquake! Suddenly, the doors opened and the chains fell away. Though Paul and Silas could have walked away, they didn’t. They stayed to talk to the guards the next morning. People told Paul and Silas they were sorry. Then they left the jail and kept on preaching and telling the world about Jesus. Acts 16:22-34

Create a cross as a family to hang in a place you see every day. You could use paper, poster board or even paper mache. On the cross, write words or draw pictures representing the wrong thing you have done. Then include words and pictures expressing God’s love and hope for you and the world! Thank God for Jesus.
What happened after Jesus died on the cross?
Spend time in prayer for people who don’t know Jesus and His love. Think of family members, neighbors, friends at work and school and people on your sports teams. How can you share the love of Jesus with them?
Practice your memory verse. You can find it in Hebrews 10:23 or right here in your GPS.
Read Luke 10:25-37. As a family, talk about the parts of the story that make you each sad. What parts of the story make you feel less sad—maybe even happy? Hint: You might have to keep reading to get to the part that makes you happy!
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
