Life App: Respect—showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Basic Truth: I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

MIDDLE SCHOOL

Be honest. The Bible is kind of intimidating, isn’t it? We come to church and hear stories about Noah, David, Moses, Abraham, Daniel, and Paul, and it’s tempting to think there’s no way you’ll ever accomplish the things they did. And it probably doesn’t stop there. Many of us believe that God will use people like pastors, small group leaders, missionaries, or youth leaders to accomplish great things, but He’ll never use people like us. It’s almost as if there’s a special club for people with special, God-chosen talents that we know we’ll never get in. Believe it or not, Peter—the very same spiritual giant we’ve been talking about for weeks—probably felt the exact same way. God called him to some pretty big things, and it seemed like he might not have what it takes to do them. But then Peter had an encounter that changed the way he viewed not only himself, but also the God who called him. It was an encounter that activated a new understanding of faith. And as we look back one more time at Peter, we’ll see that this same life-changing, faith-building encounter is waiting for us, too.

SCRIPTURE: Acts 5:15; 2 Peter 1:1 NASB

BOTTOM LINE: When you have Jesus, you have everything.
