FAITH TO PERSEVERE
BIBLE BASIS: Acts 14:8-11,19-23
BIBLE TRUTH: Paul was stoned and persecuted, but his faith in his message impelled him to proclaim the Good News.
MEMORY VERSE: “And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch, Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:21-22).
LESSON AIM: By the end of the lesson, we will: EVALUATE the nature of the miracle performed at Lystra; CONSIDER the fickleness of the crowd mentality; and PRAY for courage and strength in the face of resistance to the Gospel.
BACKGROUND SCRIPTURES: Acts 14; Colossians 2:6-7 – Read and incorporate your insights from the Background Scriptures into your study of the lesson.LESSONS 3 DECEMBER 17
