This week, you will discuss the hope Christ restores after failure. We’ve all been there. We’ve messed up, made a poor decision, and suffered with the consequences. It’s often a painful process, but Jesus restores us when we fail. Your students need to hear this truth. You’ll probably find that many of them feel like they’re constantly failing, that they don’t measure up, but you can speak truth over them and their “mess ups.” Jesus renews and restores His followers even when they fail. As you discuss Peter’s story of restoration, consider reading THIS ARTICLE by Chuck Swindoll and answering the following questions.
