Notes & Transcripts

In the NFL offseason two men in the Denver Broncos front office were convicted of DUI. Team president, John Elway suspended both of them, but he did not fire them. When asked why Tom Heckert and Matt Russell were not fired Elway replied, “Heck, I’ve made a lot of poor decisions too. I believe in second chances.”

We serve a God of second chances. After Peter denied Him three times, Jesus repeated His commission to Peter three times. “Feed my sheep.” Thank goodness He doesn’t dismiss us any or every time we make a mistake. --Illustration by Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell

John 21:15-17 (HCSB) “When they had eaten breakfast, Jesus asked Simon Peter, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ he said to Him, ‘You know that I love You.’ ‘Feed My lambs,’ He told him. (16) A second time He asked him, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love Me?’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ he said to Him, ‘You know that I love You.’ ‘Shepherd My sheep,’ He told him. (17) He asked him the third time, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love Me?’ Peter was grieved that He asked him the third time, ‘Do you love Me?’ He said, ‘Lord, You know everything! You know that I love You.’ ‘Feed My sheep,’ Jesus said.”
