1 Saul Hurts God s People Acts 9 1 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord s disciples. He went to the high priest 2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. 3 As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? 5 Who are you, Lord? Saul asked. I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting, he replied. 6 Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do. 7 The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. 8 Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. 9 For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything. 10 In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, Ananias! Yes, Lord, he answered. 11 The Lord told him, Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight. 13 Lord, Ananias answered, I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem. 14 And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name. 15 But the Lord said to Ananias, Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel. 16 I will show him how much he must suffer for my name. 17 Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit. 18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, and 19 after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus.

5 Saul Hurts God s People Craft/Activity: Glasses Students will make eye glasses to remind them that Saul (later called Paul) was breathing out murderous threats until the Lord blinded him. Later, something like scales fell from his eyes so that he could see again lb. Cardstock 2. Glasses Pattern 3. Crayons, markers, or colored pencils 4. Scissors 5. Pipe Cleaners 6. Small Post-it Notes (1 ½ x 2 ) Materials Directions 1. Make copies of the Glasses Pattern onto 67lb. cardstock for each student. 2. Have students color the glasses with crayons, markers, or colored pencils. 3. Have students cut out the glasses on the solid black lines. You may need to assist students cutting out the inside circles. 4. On each side of the glasses, attach a pipe cleaner and bend them into shape. 5. Put a Post-it Note over each lens to represent the scales that fell from Saul s eyes. For Discussion As students are working on their glasses, remind them that Saul (Paul) did whatever he could to hurt Christians. It was not until the Lord got a hold of Saul (Paul) that he changed. Help students understand that Christ is the one who can help people truly change. Not only was Saul s name changed to Paul, but his life changed as well. Paul became one of the Bible s greatest evangelists. This goes to show that God can change the hearts and lives of even the worst of sinners. Certainly, he can change our lives too! Time Needed to Complete: Approximately 15 minutes Memory Verse For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world thorough him. John 3:17

8 The Bible Times Herald A Special Report on SAUL HURTS GOD S PEOPLE Saul hated the disciples and wanted them to be put into prison. As Saul was on his way to Damascus, suddenly a light from heaven flashed from heaven. Saul fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me. Who are you, Lord? Saul asked. I am Jesus who you are persecuting. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do, Jesus said. When Saul stood up, he couldn t see a thing. The men traveling with him were speechless. For three days Saul was blind. He did not eat or drink anything. Jesus spoke to a man named Ananias and told him to go visit Saul. Ananias was unsure about going, but the Lord said to him, Go! This man is my chosen instrument. Ananias entered the house that Saul was in. He placed his hands on Saul and said, Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul s eyes, and he could see again. Then Saul got up and was baptized. Saul ate some food and regained his strength. Saul spent several days in Damascus with the disciples. To find out more details about this story, read in your Bible. Take-home Activity Sheet QUESTIONS 1. How was Saul treating God s people? 2.

12 Have You Ever Sinned? The Bible teaches that we have all sinned and do not measure up to God s glory. It also teaches that the price for sin is death which separates us from God. But even though we are sinners, Christ died for us and paid the price for our sin. We just need to ask him to forgive us and receive his free gift of salvation. Just pray this prayer, with a sincere heart, and Jesus will forgive you of your sins. You will become a child of God and live with Him in heaven. Dear Jesus, Please forgive me for the bad things that I have done. Please come into my heart and be my Lord and savior. In your name I pray, Amen. He was blind for three days. 6 3
