Sermons on John
Knowing that Peter, the one who was supposed to be the Rock, had openly failed Him in moments of weakness, Jesus asks Him three times if he loves him. After hearing a affirmative answer, Jesus asks Him to demonstrate that love through caring for others. In moments of weakness, we fail the Lord and then carry around heavy burdens of guilt which diminish our effectiveness for future service. Jesus meets us in our compromised state, brings us His soothing forgiveness, and commissions us to reach out in love to the world around us to express our love for Him. There will be a special application for parents on this Mother’s Day.
Get your eyes off your failure and onto helping others. Failure impacts us but it doesn’t have to define us. Jesus' call to all of us: Come follow Me!
In this message from the "Glory Fulfilled" series on the Gospel of John, Pastor Scott considers the implications of Jesus' conversation with Peter.
Morning sermon by Rev. Mike Lano on Jesus' restoration of Peter.
Jesus and Peter 15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. 18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.” 19 (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.”
