from glory to glory…

“Do you love Me?”

… for such a time as this… 

…Jesus the Risen King

(The Gospel Project for Kids – Fall 2017 Quarter)

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 

1 Corinthians 15.3-4

Bible Passage: John 21.1-19

Jesus & PeterWhen Jesus  made breakfast for His disciples by the sea, He wanted them to know that His promise to make them fishers of men was still true…

Jesus also wanted Peter to know that He forgave his fearful denial. Peter had denied Jesus three times. So Jesus asked Peter three times, “Do you love Me?” And Peter confirmed his love for Jesus three times…

Each time that Peter answered that he loved Jesus, Jesus told Peter to watch over His sheep, to feed His lambs and to feed His sheep. Jesus restored Peter to the work of continuing all that Jesus had taught him and the disciples…

Jesus showed Peter and His disciples that He loved and forgave them…

We who know Jesus is the Risen King must tell others that He is the Lord who forgives us and makes things right again.


Jesus is the Risen King because He took up His life again…

To show that He has overcome the corruption of this world…

To show that He has overcome the power of our own Nasty I-SIN heart

To show that He has overcome the power of Satan (Genesis 3.15)…

To show that He has overcome the despairs of death and hell…

To show that He has taken up again His glory

as King over all.

…Do you love Me…Feed My sheep.”
