Scripture: I Peter 1:1-3; John
- When we experience great sickness, disappointments, etc.,
there is hope in Jesus
- At the tomb Peter was in despair; he saw that Jesus was alive and hope was restored
- Peter fishing, followed Jesus’ instruction, nets full, realized Jesus as Son of God
- God calls ordinary people... story of grandmother
- Paul was educated, of favor; God call all kinds of people
- Peter took his eyes off Jesus and began sinking, call to Jesus and was saved
- Peter was willing to get out of the boat; story of hospital visitation (fainting)
- Peter knew who Jesus was but misunderstood Him a few times... cut off Malchus’ ear
- You can be sincere (as Peter) and still be wrong
- Story: at Harris Teeter, tried to stop shopping cart from hitting woman’s car...
- Peter’s denial; back to fishing... again Jesus showed up, brought hope
