God’s Word is our “trail map”.
Students pretend to get into a boat with Peter and to walk along with Jesus as He shows love and forgiveness to the people He meets. Peter often failed, but Jesus forgave him. Peter even lied and said he didn’t know Jesus! Now that’s a big failure. But God’s forgiveness is bigger. Many times we are just like Peter – failing, sinning, and needing forgiveness. God wants to forgive and restore us with just as much love as when He forgave Peter.
