Use this Acts 3 Sunday School lesson to teach about Peter healing the cripple.
Lesson: (Note: Always allow students to give their answers to the questions before you clarify the teaching.)
Do you remember how Jesus was always healing people and making them better?
Do you think a normal person could do that too, or could just Jesus do it?
(Have students take turns reading Acts 3:1-5, or read it yourself.)
What was the problem with the man? (He couldn’t walk.)
Ever since he was born, the man’s legs wouldn’t work right, so he could never walk. And since he couldn’t walk, he could never get a job. He had to have people bring him to the church so that he could beg for money from people going into the church.
Do you think Peter and John will give the man any money?
(Have students take turns reading Acts 3:6-16, or read it yourself.)
How was Peter able to make the man who had been crippled walk? (God gave Peter the power to heal him.)
Peter couldn’t have healed the man by himself. He needed God’s power to do it. Peter said he was able to heal the man because he believed in Jesus.
Do you think God could give you power if you believe in Jesus? (Yes.)
