CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: Peter and Cornelius
THEME: All Christians are in the family of
God no matter how different we
SCRIPTURE: Acts 10:1-8 and 24-48
Welcome to Bible Time for Kids! Bible Time for Kids is a series of
daily devotions for children and their families. Our purpose is to
supplement our Sunday morning curriculum and give you an
opportunity to encourage your children to develop a daily devotional
life. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study
God’s Word together.
This week in Children’s Church we learned about Peter and Cornelius. The
theme was “All Christians are in the family of God no matter how
different we may be.” In our story this week God taught Peter a very
valuable lesson. God’s salvation is open to everyone in the entire world. God
wanted Peter and the early church to take the gospel into the world, not just
keep it to themselves or only preach it in Israel.
Sometimes children may find it hard to accept others that are different than
they are. The Bible teaches that when we become Christians that we become
members of the same body. We are all brothers and sisters in the same
family and God is our heavenly Father. How we need to accept everyone in
Jesus, no matter who they are or how different they may be!
The section of scripture that we studied was Acts 10:1-8; 24-28. The
following five devotions are based on either the scripture and/or the theme
for Sunday’s lesson. As a starting point it would be good for you to review
these verses with your children.
These devotions are designed to help you reinforce Sunday’s lesson
throughout the week with your children, provide some more ideas for the
application of God’s Word in your children’s lives and provide a tool to help
in family devotions.
Obviously children at various age levels will respond to the devotional in
different ways. You may
