Read Acts 2:46-47 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What was the happiest time in your life?
Parent Note: The disciples were experiencing joy like never before. They knew that the Messiah had come and saved them from sin. They were building a relationship with God in a way that wasn't possible for them before. All of the good Jesus did for them was making them so happy.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank you for the early church.
You used them to set an example for us today of the love and joy that the Gospel brings.
Please help me to do my part in building Your church.
We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
