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.

Lesson 5 – The Road to Rome Family Devotion Handout
Memory Verse: Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Summary: There are some who believe Christians should keep their faith to themselves and not talk about it, but that’s not what the Bible says. Jesus told us to go and share our faith with others. The early Christians told everyone about Jesus and turned the world upside down.
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 Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 10:42. Jesus gave The Great Commission before His ascension into Heaven.
Tuesday: Read Acts 1:8; Luke 12:12. The Holy Spirit gives us the power we need to tell people about Jesus.
Wednesday: Read Matthew 8:38; Luke 9:26; Romans 1:14-17. The Bible warns about being ashamed or embarrassed about sharing the Gospel.
Thursday: Read Acts 2:42-47; Acts 17:1-9. By sharing the Gospel, the early church turned the world upside down.
Friday: Read Acts 21:1-14. Paul was willing to be arrested so that he could tell others about Jesus.
Saturday: Read Revelation 12:11. Anyone who suffers for Christ is honored. In the New Testament, the word martyr and the word witness were the same word.
Family Activity: Help children make a list of people who need Jesus. After the list is made, spend some time praying for each person on the list as a family.
