The Shadow Of Peter Part 2

August 16, 2022

What do people really need? The Apostle Peter didn’t have extensive resources and neither do we. In this message, we discover the effect our lives have on others, and why we, like Peter, must live in the power of the Holy Spirit. If we stand in the light of Christ, our shadows will impact others with resources that are far beyond our own power.

The Vanishing Power Of Death
Death no longer has dominion over the one who follows Christ. When the tomb was found empty, death lost its power. In “The Vanishing Power of Death,” Pastor Lutzer considers the evidence for the resurrection of Christ and its impact on the disciples. From Mary weeping at the tomb, to Thomas' doubting, to Christ's counseling session with two discouraged disciples on the road to Emmaus, Pastor Lutzer shows readers that the experiences of the disciples are poignant and relevant for believers today. This is a book that is sure to invigorate your faith and make a lasting difference in the hands of a friend.

All of us would like to be a positive influence, giving people help and direction. In Acts 5, people brought the sick to Peter, now transformed by Jesus, so his shadow might fall upon them to be healed. In this message, we visit three different instances where his shadow—his influence—was profound, going into eternity. What kind of an impact are we having?

Many of us are hesitant to believe God can work in and through us like He did for the Apostles. Peter, despite all his impulses and failures, experienced the Holy Spirit remaking him from the inside out. In this message, we discover how we too are blessed by the Holy Spirit of God. Do not stifle the only Voice that can save you.

Can God really change people? From the day of Christ’s Ascension to the day of Pentecost, Peter is transformed from a confused and discouraged man into an Apostle with boldness and determination. In this message, we see three contrasts between the old and the new Peter. We too can be transformed.

Sometimes we are drowning in shame because we cannot change the deep failures of our past. That’s where Jesus found Peter after he vehemently denied even knowing Jesus. In this message, we listen to Jesus’ three restorative questions. In Christ, we have lasting incentives to be restored to Christ and His service.

We often ponder, “How different would my life be, if only…?” Peter denied Christ, amassing a load of guilt too deep for words. In this message from Luke 22, we identify four incentives which move us closer to Christ regardless of the guilt we carry. No matter how horrible our mistakes have been, it is possible to be brought from regret to restoration.

Moral and spiritual pollution is everywhere, even within us. When Jesus knelt to wash Peter’s feet, the conflict within Peter was intense. In this message from John 13, servanthood and submission are displayed, even as Jesus revealed another type of washing that is deeply inward. With our daily sins and sinful nature, how can we be cleansed?

We’d all like to live better lives than we are. Usually, it’s easy to see the evil without, but not all of us recognize the enemy within. In this message from John 13, in which Jesus washes Peter’s feet, we are confronted with three lessons which expose us before God. Until Christ cleanses us on the inside, we’re dirty no matter how wonderful we look on the outside.

We typically think our greatest need is for money, health, or justice. In Matthew 17, Peter learned a lifelong lesson about Jesus’ provision for our needs from a coin in a fish’s mouth. In this message, we reflect on Jesus’ Lordship not only over circumstances and nature but also His people. Why does God really care for His own?

In our difficulties, whether physical, emotional, or vocational, we often ask ourselves, “Is Jesus able to meet my need?” Jesus knows not only the demands each day brings but also what’s in our hearts because He is Lord. In this message, we learn with Peter three aspects of Christ’s Lordship over everything. When challenges arise, what truly is our greatest need?

All of us naturally self-protect, hiding our true selves. Peter could not imagine his Master nailed to a cross and told Him so. Yet Jesus gives a stern rebuke: “Get behind me, Satan!” In this message from Matthew 16, we identify four ways we avoid the cross today. Are we willing to take up our cross, humbly exposing ourselves to God and others?
