INTRODUCTION

ONE OF THE MOST FEARED WORDS AND HARDEST THINGS TO DEAL WITH IS FAILURE
BEING A STUDENT IN ACADEMICS, THERE IS EDUCATIONAL FAILURE
MAYBE FOR ONE OF US IN THIS ROOM TODAY, IT IS SPIRITUAL FAILURE
WE PROMISED GOD THAT WE WOULD READ HIS WORD FOR AD HOUR A DAY AND WE ONLY GOT A HALF AN HOUR IN A WEEK
SPIRITUAL FAILURE, PROMISING GOD THAT YOU WOULD PRAY AN EXTRA 30 MINUTES A DAY OR EVEN FASTING ONE DAY A WEEK
BUT, INSTEAD, THERE IS SPIRITUAL FAILURE
MAYBE YOU HAVE DONE SOME THINGS THAT YOU REGRET DOING
IT IS MORAL FAILURE
YOU’VE CROSSED SOME LINES THAT YOU SAID YOU WOUDN’T CROSS
FAILURE: IT HAS THE POWER to turn our lives inside or out.
THE BIBLE IS A BOOK OF PEOPLE THAT FAIL
THAT TELLS YOU TWO THINGS ABOUT THE BOOK
NUMBER 1-GOD WROTE IT. IF ANYONE ELSE WOULD HAVE WRITTEN IT ALL OF THOSE FAILURES WOULD HAVE BEEN COVERED UP
NUMBER 2-IT ALSO TELLS US THAT THE GOD WHO WROTE IT IS A GOD OF GRACE.
REMEMBER , PETER SAYS DEPART FROM ME LORD. I’M A SINFUL MAN. THE LIVING BIBLE SAYS, I’M TOO MUCH OF A SINNER FOR YOU TO HAVE AROUND
FAILURE
THEN, THAT ONE DARK NIGHT AFTER PETER HAD CUT OFF AN EAR. HE STARTED CURSING AS HE WAS DENYING JESUS 3 TIMES
AND REALLY THE REASON THAT THE DISCIPLES HAD A HARD TIME BELIEVING THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH WHEN HE WAS CRUCIFIED IS THAT TO ISRAEL A CRUCIFIED MESSIAH WAS A FAILED MESSIAH
BUT THAT WAS NOT THE END
SINCE RESURRECTION CAME AFTER WHAT WAS SEEN AS FAILURE, WE CAN ALSO EXPECT TO COMEBACK AND BE RESURRECTED IF WE HAVE FAILED.

I. CAN PETER MAKE A COMEBACK?

OUR TEXT DOES NOT DEAL WITH FAILURE, BUT RATHER, COMING BACK FROM FAILURE.
CAN PETER BE A ROCK AGAIN?
CAN YOU COME BACK FROM WHERE YOU FAILED?
JOHN SAYS OUT OF ALL THOSE RESURRECTION APPEARANCES THAT THIS IS THE 3RD TIME THAT HE IS APPEARING TO HIS DISCIPLES
WE KNOW IT IS LATER THAN A WEEK
HOW MUCH MORE MIGHT BE UP FOR GRABS
THE SCENE ONCE AGAIN IS THE SEA
7 OF THE DISCIPLES ARE THERE. THEY GO OUT TO FISH AT NIGHT, AND THEY CATCH NOTHING
IN THE EARLY MORNING, SOMEONE CALLS OUT, DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH
WELL, IT IS JUST ONE MORE FAILURE, THEY SAY NO!
THE MAN SAID, THROW YOUR NETS ON THE OTHER SIDE
CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT THE EXPERIENCED FISHERMEN THOUGHT, THIS GUY IS CRAZY
JOHN, THE WORSHIPER, WHO ALWAYS HAD HIS HEAD ON THE CHEST OF JESUS SAYS, IT IS THE LORD
PETER PUTS HIS COAT ON AND JUMPS INTO THE WATER
THEY BRING IN THE NETS AND THEY ARE NOT BROKEN THIS TIME
WHEN THEY GET TO SHORE, JESUS HAS A CHARCOAL FIRE GOING MAKING MACHA JOL-THAT’S IMPORTANT
THE ONLY OTHER PLACE WHERE CHARCOAL FIRE APPEARS IS WHEN PETER DENIED JESUS
IT MUST HAVE BEEN A REAL COMMUNION MEAL COOKED BY CHRIST
