We are continuing our unit learning about our call to tell others about Jesus. During this unit, we are looking at how Peter told others about Jesus. The question for this unit is, “Why does God command Christians to tell others about Jesus? We tell others about Jesus so they will hear and believe in Him.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Romans 10:14 (NIV), “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be in Acts 3 as we learn about Peter’s healing a lame man in the temple. We will see how the Holy Spirit gave the disciples power to heal in Jesus’ name. Peter and John showed God’s power and pointed to a greater, spiritual healing found in Jesus.  The Holy Spirit’s power was at work within Peter. This disciple who denied Christ went on to empower others to repent of their own denial of the Messiah. The same Spirit who restored and redeemed Peter has empowered us to declare this same hope to the world.
