This Week in Motion :: God is with you even when you feel stuck.

God is with you even when you feel stuck.
An Angel Helps Peter Escape from Prison ● Acts 12:1-19

As a family, discuss a few questions together after your child watches this week’s Motion episode.

Question #1: Have you ever felt stuck, like you wanted something different to happen but nothing seemed to change? How did that feel?

Question #2: Re-read Acts 12:5-6. Peter was stuck in prison because he was part of the church. Do you think it’s possible to feel stuck but still be confident and trust God?

Question #3: Sometimes feeling stuck brings people closer to God, and other times it makes them pull away by ignoring God, not praying, or not coming to church. Why do you think feeling stuck might make people pull away from God?

Question #4: The next time you feel stuck, what can you do to remind yourself God will help you face your situation with confidence and faith?

Read the Bible — by yourself and with others. Try different translations. Set aside a special, quiet time to dive in.
Ask questions to help you understand — who’s the author, who are they writing to, and how does this part of the Bible point you toward Jesus?
Yak — share about what you’re learning and what God is showing you, especially with friends who don’t have a relationship with Jesus or want to learn more about Him.

This week: 

Read: Acts 12:1-19— As you read the passage, write down all of the times and ways that Perer was stuck. (There should be around seven ways.)

Ask: Peter found himself stuck in a pickle — arrested, imprisoned, and under the watch of so many guards. Spend some time thinking about this question, “What does it feel like to be stuck?”

Yak: Share what you read with someone. How does this verse help you build your faith?
