Paul and Barnabus
Two and three year old 5-7 minutes lesson
Paul was very angry. He hated people that loved Jesus
‘I must do something to stop them talking about Jesus,’ Paul said.
So Paul gathered some others to help him. If Paul heard that people were talking about Jesus, he found them and took them off to prison.
Paul heard that people were talking about Jesus in a town called Da mas cus. Paul gathered others to help him and got ready for a long journey. ‘I’ll stop those people talking about Jesus,’ Paul told his helpers.
As Paul walked along the road, he kept thinking about how he would find some people that loved Jesus and put them in jail.. Suddenly, a bright light flashed on him. Paul fell down, blinded by the light. Paul heard a voice saying , ‘Why are you so angry with me, Paul?’
‘Who are you?’ Paul asked.Very scared!
‘I’m Jesus, the one you’re angry with. Now go along the road into Damascus. I will tell you what to do.’
Paul got up. He had met Jesus and he felt different now he loved people that talked about Jesus. Paul went along the road into Damascus. When Paul got there, he met a man called An a ni as who helped him understand more about Jesus. Soon Paul was talking about Jesus to everyone he met!
‘God had been with Paul all the time when he was angry and upset. God was with Paul now that he was different.’ God is with us all the time.
Paul started preaching the people were angry with Paul they thought he was still mean.
Paul seen a man his name was Barnabus
Barnabus wanted to help Paul
Barnabus said to Paul come with me I will tell the people to listen to you
you are not scary any more
The people listened to Paul
Barnabus was a good helper.
Barnabus asked Paul Can I go with you too i want to help tell people about Jesus too.
ok said Paul but God wants us to be missionaries
Wonderful said Barnabus I will bring my nephew Mark too
Off they went telling everyone about Jesus
Mark Barnabus and Paul
I Dont want to go anymore said Mark
ok said Barnabus stay behind then.
Barnabus stopped he listened to people talking about bad things
Is it good to talk about bad things?
Barnabus listened to the bad things
I Dont want to go anymore unless my nephew will go said Barnabus
You know your nephew dont want to go with us Barnabus said Paul
I want my own way or Im not going said Barnabus
Just like a baby Barnabus wanted his own way.
Barnabus made God sad
God dont let us help when we do things our own way.
We have to do what God wants.
God told Paul he was the leader missionary but Barnabus did not want to follow.
4:16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
Mark 9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting
My prayer is this morning is God teach me to pray.In a world full of sin if we dont pray who will?
I believe we have fallen short of prayer with all the cares of the world.We need to pray more now than ever to make up for the ones that are not praying,We are a Martha or a Mary.God placed everyone of us in a church as it pleases Him.Some have to pray longer not to be seen of men but to make up for the ones that are sleeping.Some cant watch for a hour because they want to do things their own way.Jesus being spotless prayed how much more do we need to pray.I thank God the veil of the temple was torn for us that any time we need or want we can accept the invitation to pray,
God never closes the veil we forfeit on our own to go beyond the torn veil
anytime we feel the need What can be more important to do with our idle time.if not pray than the idle time the devil will steal.There is no clock behind the veil.There is no tv computers xbox or other cares of the world The Holy Spirit is waiting to go in with us before the Great and powerful all mighty God.I wonder if the timbers could speak louder if we could hear the past and present of the prayers of the saints
Or would their be no need for incense.I pray this morning Holy Spirit come! Let nothing hinder me from the need of prayer some have fallen a brother needs my prayer someone sick needs my prayer my family needs my prayer my pastor needs my prayer my church family needs my prayer How can some believe there is a time limit on our prayers when we have little time left to pray.
What would it do for God to go to and fro through out the earth and find all the churches unlocked and every knee bowed calling out to God save our land?
