Journey: A Study of Peter For Stumbling Toward Jesus's Extravagant Grace (#04 in Real People, Real Faith Bible Study Series)

Jodie Niznik

Paperback 2022-03-29

Publisher Description

Discover how Peter's broken pursuit of Jesus can offer us hope and courage Peter was an ordinary man of his time. He started as a humble, hardworking fisherman. But he ended his life with a lasting legacy that still inspires Christians worldwide today. His path from one to the other wasn't smooth or straight. And there is enormous hope in understanding his rocky, stumbling journey of following Jesus. In this eight-week Bible study, Jodie Niznik delves into the ways Peter's missteps and failures reveal God's grace. When Jesus met Peter in those broken places and called him to get back up, dust himself off, and keep following, we are, in turn, taught how to follow Jesus in our own lives. Along the way, Niznik emphasizes mindfulness practices to readers, inviting them to come to each week's study with a quiet mind and ready heart. There is no wallowing in mistakes here, however. Instead, drawing on all four gospels and other supporting Scriptures, Jodie invites readers to see the grace, mercy, and correction of Jesus in the life of Peter, and then to draw parallels to modern Christian lives. Each chapter begins with a spiritual practice that ties into the week's theme to help women engage their heart in the study. Though Peter lived two thousand years ago, he is proof that if God can use an imperfect life like his, then God can and will use Christians today, despite all those ways they feel themselves failing, coming up short, and falling away.
