Nathan’s Notes- 4/8/2018

What a great time of fellowship we all had together last week! Rick and I would like to thank everyone who helped with our breakfast- cooks, servers, people who set up tables, etc. Few thingsĀ  bring a church body together like times of feasting and fellowship. Thanks to everyone who made it happen!

 

Today, Rick will be sharing an important story from scripture about the reinstatement of Peter. Immediately after the resurrection of Jesus, Peter found himself in a bad place. The apostle who claimed undying loyalty to his Lord had betrayed Christ three times! Even though Jesus was now risen, Peter still had to live with the reality of what he had done. He found himself in a situation that many of us have found ourselves in: the knowledge of being wholly inadequate.

 

It is in this context that Jesus appears to Peter and the others with a special purpose in mind. As He reinstates Peter, Jesus teaches us an important lesson about what it truly means to love Him. As Rick shares with us today, let’s reflect on our own lives and our own devotion to Christ. Do we love Him?
