Jesus Heals craft
In our Bible lesson, we will learn that sharing our faith might not always be easy, in fact, it might end up being really hard to the point we end up getting hurt.  It just goes to show that being a follower of Jesus requires a lot of strength, and the good news is, Jesus gives us that strength and the bravery to heal and carry us through.
 
Materials:
- any paper
- bandages
- any writing tool
- scissors
 
 
Discussion Questions 
  • What was Stephen accused of? (blasphemy, saying something untrue and dishonoring about God; Acts 6:11)
  • What did Stephen preach about? (Stephen used Israel’s history to explain Jesus is the Messiah; Acts 7:51-52)
  • What did the religious leaders do to Stephen as a result of his preaching about Jesus? (killed him, Acts 7:57-60)
  • Have you ever faced persecution for your faith? Guide kids to think about ways they may feel persecuted. Be sensitive to their experiences while taking care not to minimize the harsh persecution Christians face in other parts of the world.
  • How can we stand up boldly for Jesus in the face of persecution? Discuss the strength and power available to believers through the Holy Spirit. Remind kids that He can help us be bold in hard times. Encourage kids to trust God and have faith that He turns all things to good, even when we don’t see the good results.
  • What should we do if we are persecuted? Talk through what Stephen did. Help the kids see that Stephen did not fight his enemies, but instead asked God to forgive them for killing him. Remind kids that Jesus promised troubles and persecution would come. Encourage kids to pray for boldness in hard times, not just for things to get easier.
