Bible story: Preaching the Gospel in Lystra

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Preaching the Gospel in Lystra

The Bible story of Paul in Lystra is a powerful example of the transformative power of the gospel message. In Acts 14:8-20, Paul and Barnabas heal a man who had been lame since birth, causing the people of Lystra to believe that they were gods. Paul quickly dispels this notion and preaches the message of Jesus Christ to the people. However, some of the Jews who opposed his message incite the crowd against them, leading to Paul being stoned and left for dead.

Despite this, Paul recovers and continues his mission, inspiring others with his faith and determination. The story of Paul in Lystra is a reminder of the challenges that believers face in spreading the gospel, but also of the transformative power of faith and perseverance.
