Story Focus: In week 2, we head to Acts 9:10-31 to see what happens after Jesus spoke to Saul on the road to Damascus. In a vision, Jesus spoke to Ananias, a follower of Jesus living in Damascus. Ananias knew Saul’s reputation, but he trusted that God would take care of him. He trusted that Jesus could change anyone—even a man like Saul. When some of the religious leaders plotted to kill Saul, Ananias even helped him escape from Damascus.
Bottom Line: God can help you face your fears. God is always with us. Knowing that can give us a peace that passes all understanding. When we believe that Jesus conquered death itself, we can believe that He can do anything. We might fear things from time to time, but we can put our trust in Jesus and know that we can face anything because He’s with us.
Key Question: When have you faced a fear? One of the best ways to work through your fear is to name what makes you scared and think about a time when you overcame that fear. We pray that as kids start to understand their fears, they’ll experience the peace that can come from knowing that Jesus is with us.
