This will be the last message in our series entitled, “Jesus On Mission.” We will be looking at John 21 and the lakeside conversation between Jesus and Peter in a message entitled, “How To Be Restored.” 

It’s not every day that you get a second chance. Ask the person who got the pink-slip when their Toyota factory was moved down to Texas. Ask the mother whose husband ran off and left her with four hungry kids.

We live in a do or die world… a dog-eat-dog world where it’s tough to find someone who will give you a second chance. But in Jesus, Peter and others like him found their second chance. And we can find it as well!

Often the gospel is referred to as “The Gospel of Second Chances” because no matter how jaded your past may be, there is forgiveness offered in Christ Jesus who stands not only ready to forgive, but also to restore.

As we study this post-Resurrection encounter between Jesus and Peter we will discover that God is all about forgiving and restoring us. If you feel cut off from God, this message will help you.

If Jesus gave Peter a second chance after he denied His Lord three times… He can give you a second chance as well. I look forward to sharing the good news of restoration with you.
