Part 4 – Commit to what Jesus Demands
John 21.15-23

  •  For every time he denied Jesus, Peter was reconciled to Him.
  • Jesus’ goal was returning Peter to a passionate relationship.
  • God’s faithfulness in forgiveness is never in question. (1 John 1.9)

But His questions about love weren’t only about reconciliation. They were also about obedience.

  • Built into Jesus’ question about love is His question of allegiance.
  • He is not asking to be a priority in your life; He’s demanding to be the priority of your life.
  • Areas to examine:  unconquered relationships, ambition, and possessions. 
  • Two tests of priority:

o   If you knew it wouldn’t end well for you, would you still go?
o   If you were all alone, would you still obey?

His call never changes:  follow Me.
