Peter Heals (Acts 3)| Games

An important message of the story where Peter heals the lame man, is that the power displayed is not, owned by Peter, but the power of Jesus flowing through his servant. These games use that idea of passing along alongside ideas about the struggles the lame man may have faced to link into the story.
