Summary

Many of us have times when we have walked away from the Lord or let our failures distance us from His love and grace. Jesus is always pursuing us to restore our relationship with Him. Because Peter denied Jesus three times, Jesus was intentional to ask Peter three times if he loved Him.

Do we have the courage to answer that question ourselves and to follow His desires for our life and walk with Him? It’s the best relationship of all.

Scripture – John 21: 4-7

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!”

Questions and Application

  • Have you been trying to accomplish your goals with your own strength and wisdom?
  • Is the Lord showing you a better way? Ask Him and obey. You may be surprised at what He tells you to do.

Scripture – John 21:15

15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”

Questions and Application

  • Do you love the Lord?
  • Do you love him more than your job, hobbies, pursuits?
  • What does it mean for you to feed his sheep?

Prayer

Lord, we love you. Forgive us when we act in fear or put other things before you. Thank you for your love and grace. Please help us to hear Your voice, obey, and walk daily with you, feeding your sheep and loving all those around us.
