We are beginning a new unit learning about our call to tell others about Jesus. During this unit, we are looking at how Peter told others about Jesus. The question for this unit is, “Why does God command Christians to tell others about Jesus? We tell others about Jesus so they will hear and believe in Him.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Romans 10:14 (NIV), “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be in Acts 2 as we learn about Peter’s first sermon at Pentecost. We will see how the Holy Spirit enables Peter to be transformed from just a disciple to someone sharing the Good News and inviting others to follow Jesus. Peter’s sermon shows the Holy Spirit’s power to save and change those who trust in Jesus. God used Peter to preach about Jesus to the crowd so that thousands of others would believe and be changed as well. All who believe in Jesus are changed and will never to be the same.
