‘A lesson in love’ (John 21:1-19)

Philip Burns preached from John 21:1-19, highlighting the meeting between the resurrected Jesus and the Apostle Peter on the beach at Tiberius. Jesus asked Peter the question, ‘Do you love me?’ three times in an attempt to help Peter know that he was forgiven for his failure in denying Jesus three times and to prepare Peter for a lifetime of service and his eventual death for the sake of the gospel. The question ‘Do you love Me?’ is one Jesus asks today of those who claim to be His.
