Yesterday, Craig continued a sequel to his The Week That Changed the World sermon series based on the gospel of John. Specifically, he focused on John 21:1-2—“Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together.” It seems as though the second verse is merely a list of names, but the most important word is together. Craig addressed what it truly meant for these believers to be in fellowship in one place—facing each other after the shame of their actions during the week that changed the world. Craig concludes that it was Jesus, and the power of His resurrection, that held these disciples together, preserving them for the purpose of spreading the story of Christ. In that, the practical application calls for today’s Church to consider: What is holding us together and for what purpose are we being held together? How do we face others in the church knowing our own shame? And how do we avoid judging others for their own actions so that the church can function as one cohesive body?
