Just like there is only one person that can save us from sin and change our life, there was only one person on board the ship that could save them and get them safely to shore. The people had to listen to Paul and obey what he said, but God kept them safe as He promised Paul that He would.
God can save us and change our lives, too. He is the only one who can. We cannot save ourselves. That is why Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins. He wants to be our Savior and have a relationship with us forever. He loves us that much!
Remind your child of this truth throughout the week. Recite the memory verse (below) and pray together, thanking God for His continued protection, provision, and the change He’s doing in our lives.
“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
