On Sunday, April 17 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, we turned our attention to the gospel of John. The dialogue between Peter and his risen Savior in John 21:12-19 leads to a deeper charge for all believers. Repetition in this passage drives home important truths about our individual places in the kingdom of God. This particular scene helps us see that we bear many similarities to Peter. We recall his denial of Jesus before the crucifixion, and like him, we are broken in our sin, forgiven by grace, and reinstated into our calling. Jesus’ command to “feed my sheep” extends to us. We, like Peter, stand mired in our sin only to be washed over with new life–true life–which comes only when we embrace confidence in Christ. We then live out our love toward one another, our fellow sheep, always pointing to the good Shepherd who provides for our every need. Listen to the whole sermon here.
