Since the Coronavirus is keeping families at home, I’m offering free family devotions for children’s pastors to distribute to parents of their students. These devotions are from Building Foundations Curriculum and are copyrighted. They are only meant as a free resource during this time. Do not sell or publish this resource.

The Road Lesson 4 – The Road to Damascus Family Devotion Handout
Memory Verse: Romans 10:13 “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Summary: Saul hated Christians. He was intent on putting them in prison, convincing them to renounce Christ, and killing them. He was on his way to do that when Christ appeared to him. He called on the name of the Lord and was saved proving God can save anyone, even the worst of sinners. Saul later became the Apostle Paul and wrote most of the New Testament before giving his life for Christ.
This sheet is provided to help families with devotions to go with the lessons your children learned in children’s church this week. Included is a daily Bible reading to use for discussions.
Monday: Read Acts 9:1-19. Jesus appears to Saul on the road to Damascus.
Tuesday: Read Romans 3:23; 6:23. To be saved, we must admit we are sinners and that sin keeps us from God.
Wednesday: Read Romans 5:8; 10:9; 10:13. We need to accept that Jesus died on the cross for us, believe that God raised Him from the dead, and confess that He is Lord over our lives. We need to give our lives to Him. When we call on His name, He will save us.
Thursday: Read Romans 5:1; 8:1; Psalm 103:12; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21. When we call on His name and give our lives to Christ, we can trust God to save us. Our sins are gone. We are a new creation.
Friday: Read Romans 6:4; Acts 10:48; Colossians 2:12; Matthew 28:18-20. After we are saved, we should publicly confess our salvation through water baptism.
Saturday: Read Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 16:24; Galatians 2:20. Jesus sacrificed Himself for us. We should become living sacrifices for Him.
Family Activity: Talk to the children about their salvation experiences. Testify to them how you were saved. If your children are saved, talk to them about the next step – water baptism.
