TMinus 40 Restoration

40 Days with Jesus Between His Resurrection and Ascension

John 21:15-25

#1.  LOVE DEEPLY. vv. 15-17

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. Matthew 22:37-38 (NIV)

#2.  SERVE FROM THE HEART. vv. 15-17

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (NIV)

“No man will steadily persevere in the discharge of his ministry unless the love of Christ shall reign in his heart.” John Calvin


“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.” Luke 22:31-33 (NIV)

#4.  TRUST THE WORD. vv. 24-25

The statutes you have laid down are righteous; they are fully trustworthy. Psalm 119:138 (NIV)

All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal. Psalm 119:160 (NIV)
