John 21 – Do You Love Me?

Several fisherman who had followed the teachings of Jesus returned to their favorite fishing spot and were unsuccessful. A stranger guided them to fish on the other side of their boat. They scored a huge catch. They were invited to bring some of their catch and join the stranger on the beach for a breakfast cookout. Turns out the stranger was the resurrected Jesus. He asks “The Rock,” a fisherman named Simon Peter if he truly loves Him. He repeats the question ushering in restoration and a new commission. Peter, displays his desire and struggle repeatedly, giving hope to all of Jesus followers who live in the tension of the two.
