First Things First Sermon Notes

Sermon 1 of our "Resurgence" Series

Matthew 26:33-34 (NIV) -

33 Peter declared, “Even if everyone else deserts you, I will never desert you.”


34 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, Peter—this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me.”

Matthew 26:74 (NIV) -

74 Peter swore, “A curse on me if I’m lying—I don’t know the man!” And immediately the rooster crowed.

Luke 22:61-62 (NIV) -

61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.” 


62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.

John 21:15-19 (NIV) -

15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”


16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”


17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. 18 Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” 


19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”
