WALK IN TRUTH
Acts 4:23-33 English Standard Version (ESV)
The Believers Pray for Boldness
23 When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 And when they heard it, they lifted their voices together to God and said, “Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, 25 who through the mouth of our father David, your servant,[a] said by the Holy Spirit,
“‘Why did the Gentiles rage,
and the peoples plot in vain?
26 The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers were gathered together,
against the Lord and against his Anointed’—
27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, 28 to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
They Had Everything in Common
32 Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. 33 And with great power, the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.
Each week I create a worksheet with age-appropriate activities for children that accompany the Bible verses we read and learn about in church.This way kids are interacting with the same verses as their parents.
Walk in Truth contains the Bible verse for that week and two activities (crossword, word search, jumbles, etc.). Knowing that two activities is not enough, I supplement Walk in Truth with other activities I find on the internet that correspond with the Bible verse, activities like color by number, dot to dot and mazes.
I pray, Walk in Truth worksheets bring my children closer to God.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. – 3 John 1:4
