Sermon Notes

The resurrection brings hope, even when we have blown it really big.

When Jesus first met Simon, He changed his name to "Peter," which means "rock." On his own, Peter was anything but a rock, yet Jesus saw him for who he would become after the resurrection.

The resurrected Jesus really does have the power to completely transform our lives if we let Him.

Can you imagine how Peter must have felt after denying Jesus and even calling down curses on Him? In this culture of shame and loyalty, no true disciple would treat his master this way. To make matters worse, Jesus turned and look straight at Peter after he did this. Then the rooster crowed, reminding Peter that Jesus told him before the rooster crowed the next day, Peter would deny Him three times.

After the resurrection, Peter and some other disciples were fishing when Jesus appeared. John recognized who Jesus was once they had another miraculous catch of fish and cried out "It is the Lord." Peter jumped into the water and hurried to shore to be with Jesus.

The real question is this: "How will you respond to Jesus?" As Tim Keller said, "Unless you are running away from Him or running toward Him, you actually don't really know who He is."

I urge you to run to Jesus in spite of your past failures. The resurrected Christ brings hope and changes everything!
