Passage: John 21:1-25 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: John - That You May Believe

Length: 46 mins 1 sec Plays: 1239

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Just as the Gospel’s prologue in John 1 serves to “lift” the reader so that he may grasp the full significance of the person and work of Jesus, so the Gospel’s epilogue in John 21 serves to “land” the reader so that he may be guided in the newly established relation with God and mission of God. Having come to believe and know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and having received life in his name, what must the believer do? In our text this morning we learn that life in Christ is not the end, but rather the beginning of a mission wherein Christians are sent to be fishermen and shepherds. May our Lord teach us as we lovingly follow him.
