Servant Church in the of Mason City, IA

2nd Sunday of Easter – 2024

Date: April 7, 2024
Key Speaker: Pastor Dan Gerrietts
Season: Time after Easter
Series: Wandering Heart: Figuring Out Faith with Peter

In this final week of our series, we come full circle with Peter. He has dropped his nets, walked on water, professed his faith, been rebuked, received foot-washing, denied Jesus, and run to the tomb. And now, Jesus once again meets him at the shoreline where Peter is casting his nets.

Jesus offers abundant nourishment and also a new command: “Feed my sheep.” Then he turns to Peter and asks three times, “Do you love me?” It’s as if Jesus says, “Here’s my heart,” which washes over Peter’s three denials like a healing balm. 

No matter how far we wander, may we entrust our hearts to God. No matter if our faith is strong or weak, what we can give is our love.
