Jesus Stories
The Acts of the Apostles

Get Up, Aeneas!

Christianity spread far and wide.

The church had peace.

The church grew.

Christians learned how to walk with the Lord.

They learned about the Holy Spirit.

Peter traveled a lot.

He was tying to visit all the Christians.

He traveled to a place called Lydda.

There lived a man in Lydda that was paralyzed.

He had been paralyzed for 8 years.

He had to stay in bed.

Paul went to see this man.

Get up and walk!" Paul commanded.  "Aeneas, Jesus Christ has healed you.  Get up and make your bed."

Aeneas was healed instantly!

Aeneas was so happy.

All the people werre amazed when they saw Aeneas walking the streets.

All the people of Lydda turned to God when they saw this miracle.

What do you think?

Why do you think Peter healed him?

Should Peter have healed him?

Would you believe in God if you saw a miracle like that?

Write and tell me what you think , BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for my health.
Thank you for caring when I am sick.
Thank you for my parents and doctors who help me get well and stay well.
Help me to always remember that it is You who can help me all the time.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
