This Week in SojournKids: Paul’s Conversion and Baptism (Acts 9:1-25)

Josh RobertsComment


We'd love for you to use this short devotional to review this week's story with your kids.

Background:  Saul (Paul), who persecuted Christians, was on his way to Damascus. Suddenly on the road to Damascus a bright light shined around him. Saul (Paul) fell to the ground and asked who was speaking to him. The voice said, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. But rise and enter the city.” Saul (Paul) did as Jesus commanded and even though his eyes were open he could not see. For three days he was blind and he did not eat or drink anything. Jesus came to a man named Ananias and told him to go to Saul (Paul). He went to Saul (Paul) and played his hands on him and the scales from Saul’s (Paul’s) eyes fell off.

Opening/Ice Breaker:  Have any of you ever been blindfolded for a game? What game did you play? Was it hard?

Read Acts 9:1-25

Questions/Apply it:

  • Where was Saul (Paul) going?
  • What happened on the road?
  • How many days was Saul (Paul) blinded?
  • Who came to visit Saul (Paul)?

Prayer: Lord we thank you for your word. We thank you for the work done is Saul’s (Paul’s) life and the great impact it had. We pray that we can be reminded of Saul (Paul) and how you changed his life. Amen.
