This weekend we are starting a sermon series called “Risen” in all our services. Throughout the month of April we will focus our messages on the impact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. My first message is called, “Resurrection Instructions” from John 21:1-17. We will look at the challenges the disciples had in recognizing Jesus after his resurrection, the impact of miracles and the specific instructions Jesus gave to his disciples.
When the disciples responded to the Lord's direction in John 21, they experienced an incredible miracle. Miracles are usually cooperative endeavors between the Spirit of God and the simple obedience of people.
It can be a challenge for us to know when the Lord is speaking to us and respond to Him in obedience. We want miracles to occur, but we don't want to become obsessed with them. If we do respond to the word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit, our lives can be incredibly fruitful and productive. This message will give you some practical help in fulfilling the primary plan and purpose God has for your life.
