SUNDAY APRIL 26TH
Discuss these questions together as a family:
Who did we visit in today’s video?
What happened when Joel first tried to make something?
Who helped him fix it?
Do we ever mess up like Peter?
Does God forgive us when we ask Him to?
Read John 21:1-19 together as a family. If you have younger children who are struggling to pay attention or understand, try telling the Bible story in your own words.
Talk about the following together as a family: Do you think Jesus actually had some pet sheep running around that He needed Peter’s help in feeding? Of course not! Jesus used the word sheep to describe His followers. Jesus was helping Peter understand that since he loved Jesus, he should show it by the way he served others. What are some ways that you serve others?
Peter had denied Jesus three times before the crucifixion. Think about that. Peter lied three times about whether he knew Jesus, but now Jesus asked Peter three times if Peter loved Him. Why do you think Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved Him? (Since Peter had denied Jesus three times, He was giving Peter a chance to respond in love three times.) Peter, like all people, had sinned, but Jesus still had a plan for Peter and still wanted to use him to do great things.
Use the bible story picture to engage your child as you tell them the story about how Jesus appeared to Peter.
