October 15, 2020 (Peter’s Love)

Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said to him, “you know that I love you.” “Feed my lambs,” he told him.

Psalm 119:97–104 (CSB)

מ‎ Mem

97 How I love your instruction!

It is my meditation all day long.

98 Your command makes me wiser than my enemies,

for it is always with me.

99 I have more insight than all my teachers

because your decrees are my meditation.

100 I understand more than the elders

because I obey your precepts.

101 I have kept my feet from every evil path

to follow your word.

102 I have not turned from your judgments,

for you yourself have instructed me.

103 How sweet your word is to my taste—

sweeter than honey in my mouth.

104 I gain understanding from your precepts;

therefore I hate every false way.

Proverbs 24:5–9 (CSB)

A wise warrior is better than a strong one,

and a man of knowledge than one of strength;,

for you should wage war with sound guidance—

victory comes with many counselors.

Wisdom is inaccessible to a fool;

he does not open his mouth at the city gate.

The one who plots evil

will be called a schemer.

A foolish scheme is sin,

and a mocker is detestable to people.

John 21:15–25 (CSB)

JESUS’ THREEFOLD RESTORATION OF PETER

15 When they had eaten breakfast, Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said to him, “you know that I love you.”

“Feed my lambs,” he told him. 16 A second time he asked him, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said to him, “you know that I love you.”

“Shepherd my sheep,” he told him.

17 He asked him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was grieved that he asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.”

“Feed my sheep,” Jesus said. 18 “Truly I tell you, when you were younger, you would tie your belt and walk wherever you wanted. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will tie you and carry you where you don’t want to go.” 19 He said this to indicate by what kind of death Peter would glorify God. After saying this, he told him, “Follow me.”

CORRECTING A FALSE REPORT

20 So Peter turned around and saw the disciple Jesus loved following them, the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and asked, “Lord, who is the one that’s going to betray you?” 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?”

22 “If I want him to remain until I come,” Jesus answered, “what is that to you? As for you, follow me.”

23 So this rumor spread to the brothers and sisters that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not tell him that he would not die, but, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?”

EPILOGUE

24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.

25 And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which, if every one of them were written down, I suppose not even the world itself could contain the books that would be written.

What is sin?

Yes, we said the ‘s’ word. Sin. What is it? Have you committed it? And what do you do about it? Sin is bigger than any of us realize. We are sinners at the core of our being because we have been born with an identity of sinner, rooted in the patterns of living and philosophies of this world.
