A Story of Restorative Power & a Review

And finally, the last of Pastor Alan’s messages on the Gospel of John teaches us restoration in Jesus. He also reminds us about all we’ve learned through this series of messages. To listen to this teaching, simply click play on the audio player below. I’ve also included the outline and links to the references. Enjoy!

A Story of Restorative Power & a Review

  1. Reminder of an Original Purpose (John 21:1-14)
    • Luke 5:1-11
    • What’s involved in being fishers of men? (Acts 1:6-8)
      • Don’t speculate more than you circulate. (v. 6)
      • Don’t be nationalistic, be global. (v. 8)
      • Don’t share/witness in your own strength, but rely on the Spirit (v. 8)
  2. Restored for a Love-Driven Purpose (John 21:15-17)
    • agape – unselfish/unconditional love
    • phileo – brotherly/filial love
    • If you love, you tend/feed others for the purpose of disciple-making (Matthew 28:16-20)
  3. Restored for a Risk-Involved Purpose (John 21:18-19)
    • For Peter, his restoration involved martyrdom
    • Every disciple of Jesus (except John) was martyred.
