Boy, are we skipping over a lot of history with our lesson this week. Last week we were in Acts 6 and 7. The kids were very briefly introduced to Saul. Now we are in Acts 17 (verses 16-31)...10 chapters away. Luke is now calling Saul Paul. Paul's life has changed drastically. Instead of hunting down Jesus believers, he is leading people to become Jesus believers. In our story this week Paul is in Athens. Though these verses are addressed to the pagans (my word) in Athens, he also took time to speak to the Jewish and those who worshiped God. That always seems to be Paul's priority...God's people first and then the Gentiles. Isaiah 40:28
The focus of our lesson is that God created heaven and earth. It's because of that God has the right to judge the earth. The key verse is Isaiah 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the whole earth.
Please spend some time reading and talking about these words with your children.
We take turns writing when God gives us an idea. The author will be noted.
