Full of Grace and Truth (John 21) – Part 18 – Restoration after Failure

Simon ‘the Rock’ Peter really blew it when he denied Jesus three times, but Jesus saw it coming. He never makes mistakes or changes His mind. In this post-resurrection account, we see how Jesus graciously restores a broken Peter by reminding him of his original call and drawing out the most fundamental truth, ‘Do you love me?’ Peter has grown in self-knowledge and humility and will soon be right back on track, preaching boldly, catching ‘fish’ (men) and feeding sheep (the Church).
