Trust Jesus with your whole life!
Jesus appears a third time to his disciples
Lessons from the story
Thank Jesus for failure
-Peter went back to his former occupation
-felt like a loser, denied Jesus three times
-led everyone else back to fishing as well
-He couldn’t even catch fish!
-people tend to go back to what they know- not always good
-Thank God when you fail at what you know you aren’t
supposed to be doing!
-Success may lead to pride, refusal to trust Jesus
-Failure humbles us, reminds us we can’t depend on ourselves!
-Get ready for Jesus to step in
Look for Jesus where you are
-Jesus said “cast your net on the right side”
-This is how Jesus first revealed Himself to Peter
-Then Jesus called Peter to follow Him
-Peter and the disciples were suddenly successful
-They finally see Jesus standing on the shore
-We often rediscover Jesus where we first met Him
-Rev 3:20 Jesus is knocking on our doors!
-Mat 28:21 “I will be with you always”
Trust in the resurrected Jesus!
-He died to pay for your sins
-He rose from death proving His power over sin and death
-Jesus wants to take care of you
-Jesus already prepared their breakfast
-Who is serving you in Jesus’ Name?
Jesus wants you to receive his full forgiveness
-Jesus had Peter affirm his love for him three time
-as many times as he had denied him
-Jesus paid for every shameful action and thought
-We must apply Christ’s forgiveness to every sin we commit
-we must forgive ourselves!
-stop offending Jesus by beating yourself up for
what he has already forgiven and forgotten about!
The best place to be in life is in the center of Christ’s will
The center of Christ’s will is not always safe in this world!
Don’t be distracted by Christ’s will for others!
How will you trust Jesus today?
Stop doing what isn’t working!
Look for the people Jesus is sending you
Trust in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ!
Follow Jesus with your whole life
