Saul meets Jesus

Here’s what happened when Danny and his dad, Rob, read ‘Saul meets Jesus’ together.

 

Danny is 9 and plays the drums (when he’s not on a climbing wall!).

Danny asked: Why did the light blind Saul, but not the other men who were with him?

 

 

Rob answered: On this day, God wanted to speak to Saul in particular, so the light only blinded Saul. It’s not clear if all the travellers even saw the light, although they did hear a sound. Also, if the light had blinded all the men who were with him as well, it would have been difficult for them to finish their journey safely to Damascus.

Here’s what happened when Abigail and her mom, Lori, read this Bible story together.

8-year old Abigail enjoys reading, art and music.

Abigail asked: Why doesn’t God talk to us like he did back then?

 

 

 

Lori answered: That is a very good and hard question. Sometimes we think it would be easier to hear God out loud. But even when God was showing his people miracles and was with them, many still found it hard to have faith. I think that God speaks to us in many ways. Maybe not out loud so that we can have more faith. You need to be in personal relationship with him to know if it’s really him that’s speaking to you! He can “talk” to you through your heart (through the Holy Spirit), the Bible, and through other Christians who know you and know God and his Word.
