The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, July 21. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
The Gentiles Receive the Gospel
Read: Acts 10:1-11:18
Ask your child:
- How did God show that He wanted Gentiles to be saved? God gave Peter a vision which revealed that He had eliminated the distinctions between Jews and Gentiles, making the gospel available to all people.
- What happened when Peter preached in Cornelius’s home? The Holy Spirit fell upon the Gentile believers.
Emphasize this principle: God offers salvation to all people. Therefore, we should believe and proclaim the truth to others.
- Rejoice that God has chosen to save both Jews and Gentiles.
- Share the gospel with those around you.
Praise: “Change My Heart, O God”
Prepare for next week: Revelation 20:1-15
Memorize for July 21-August 11: “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV)
