Memorize and Reflect
Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." (John 21:12)
Ask God if you are overdue for a fireside chat. Thank Him as a friend not just when you are cleaned up, but when you are most messed up. Reflect upon the idea that failure, whether public or private, isn't the end of your story with God. Ask God to help you feel you are on His team and show you that He wants to commission you to do.
“Live It!” Challenge
Fireside Chat: Set aside a half-hour to an hour this week to spend alone with God and have a fireside chat. Speak honestly with Him about your failures and ask Him for forgiveness. Thank Him for being your friend and ask Him to remove any shame you feel.
Small Group Discussion
Where's one of your favorite places to have a campfire?
Read: John 21:1-14. When is this happening? Who are the main characters in the story?
Think about the fire, the mood on the beach and Jesus breaking bread. What would the disciples have seen, smelled, and heard? How would that feel inviting to them? What does that tell us about God?
How do you feel when you hear that Jesus wants to be your friend?
Tell about a time when you felt Jesus really made himself known to you as a friend.
Read: John 21:15-17. why is Jesus singling out Peter? What's the history here? How do you think Peter feels?
Jesus doesn't talk to Peter to shame him, but to restore him. Do you think our culture views God as a being who is more about shame or restoration? What about you?
Peter needed to know that he was still on the team and needed by Jesus. How do you think it changes someone's opinion of themselves when they know they are needed? What kinds of things does God give us responsibility for? Where do you feel like God needs you?
