Free Fall

“Free Fall”

John 18:10-27

1 – Fall Back

  • we tend to rely too much on past victories
  • past failures can keep us from being victorious in the present

2 – Fall Down

  • Peter attacks
  • Peter denies
  • I am NOT
  • I am HE
  • Peter crashes

3 – Fall Forward

  • Jesus pursues us
  • Jesus restores us
  • Jesus renews the call to follow Him
  • Jesus surrounds us with His Spirit and His people to correct and encourage us

”And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”

1 Peter 5:10 (ESV)
