Based on Peter’s denial and Jesus’ restoration:
4 views of our amazing Savior seen through the lens of Peter’s failure.
Join me in preparing our hearts
to receive the full message
of the Cross and Empty Tomb.
It’s a message of hope and grace
and a call to recommit
and follow forward.
“Simon, Simon, behold,
Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat;
but I have prayed for you,
that your faith may not fail;
and you, when once you have turned again,
strengthen your brothers.”
Travel back with me 2000 years ago to the Thursday night before Jesus’ crucifixion. We’re going to walk where Jesus and his disciples walked and listen in on their conversations.
We are especially interested in the fisherman named Simon ~ renamed Peter by His Lord and Jesus’ prediction of Peter’s failure as recorded in Luke.
We’ll look at:
- 3 predictions of denial and 3 rebuttals by an overconfident disciple
- 3 calls to prayer and 3 corresponding naps
- 3 declarations: I do not know the man.
But through it all ~
ONE EXTRAORDINARY Savior.
As we travel from the Upper Room to the Garden of Gethsemane to the Courtyard where Peter fulfilled Jesus’ prophecy, we’ll look at the ordinary failures and the extraordinary Savior.
We’ll end on the shore of the Sea of Galilee as we witness Jesus restore Peter and recommission him to follow forward.
As we travel these roads, we’ll talk about what Jesus’ extraordinary gifts to Peter mean for us and draw parallels between the ordinary disciple from 2,000 years ago and you and me as the ordinary followers in the 21st century.
