Bible Story: Philip and the Ethiopian Official | Acts 8:26-40
Every person on earth is unique. We have distinct DNA, personalities, experiences, and relationships that make us different from each other. This makes us uniquely wired and wonderfully made. Because we are uniquely made in God’s image, it’s important for kids to discover more about what that means for them — how they can use their unique traits, gifts, and talents to serve and bring glory to God.
In Acts 8:26-40; we learn more about an encounter between Philip and an official from Ethiopia. As the Ethiopian searched God’s word and had questions about faith, Philip pointed him in the right direction, and showed him that Jesus was the answer to those prophesies from long ago.
God made you to follow Jesus. God wants to have a relationship with us and made a way for that to happen through Jesus. No matter who they are or what they’ve done, God made kids to have a relationship with Him when they believe in Jesus.
