FAITH TO DISCERN
BIBLE BASIS: Acts 13:1-12
BIBLE TRUTH: False prophets tried to block Paul and Barnabas from teaching and preaching the Gospel.
MEMORY VERSE: “As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them” (Acts 13:2).
LESSON AIM: By the end of the lesson, we will: CONTRAST the motives and sources of power of Paul and his companions with those of Elymas; APPRECIATE what it signified for Paul to pronounce blindness on another; and COMMIT to a season of prayer and fasting before embarking on a new ministry.
BACKGROUND SCRIPTURES: Acts 13:1- 12 – Read and incorporate the insights that you gained from the Background Scriptures into your study of the lesson.LESSON 2 DECEMBER 10 2017
