UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
People who are broken want to be made whole. How and where do they find wholeness? Peter proclaimed that faith in Jesus restores people to wholeness.
Peter and John were used in God’s plan to restore humanity to a state of wholeness through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Then and now we are faced with the challenge to exchange our inadequacy for God’s adequacy and to exchange our brokenness for God’s wholeness. As ambassadors for Christ we are called to carry the Good News that there is a Divine Repairman who is able to fix whatever is broken in our lives so that we may live out our destiny to the glory of God.
Dear God, thank you for being our friend. Thank you for knowing us better than we know ourselves. Help us to trust you even during the times when we do not completely understand you or your ways. We give you control of our present and future. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
