Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple -Summer Worship Series

Walking with Jesus in the Storms

Dr. Chris Carrasco
After the death of John the Baptist and unexpectedly feeding 5,000 people, Jesus was emotionally and physically exhausted. He sent the disciples on a boat trip while he went up to the mountain alone to pray. That night, a storm arose that put the lives of the disciples in jeopardy. Upon seeing Jesus on the water, Peter asked to join him. He does the impossible until he lost his focus on Jesus, distracted by the storm. Jesus doesn’t rescue us from the storm, but he keeps us from drowning. Often it’s the presence of Jesus in the storms that leads to a deeper profession of faith, “Truly, you are the Son of God.”

Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple -Summer Worship Series

He was not rich or educated, but was familiar with hard work. He was quick-tempered and impetuous, but possessed a passion that would change the world. He left everything to follow his teacher, yet struggled with doubt and fear. He was the first to profess Jesus as the Son of God, yet he later denied knowing him. Simon Peter is an ordinary fisherman who heard an extraordinary call. In this five week study based on Adam Hamilton’s book by the same name, we will study Peter’s life in-depth from his call as a fisherman through his death. Perhaps we will see ourselves in Simon Peter, the flawed but ultimately faithful follower of Jesus Christ.
