What is your biggest regret?
Big Idea: Jesus frees us from the power of regret.
Excuses can keep us from doing what we know we ought to do and lead to regrets.
Peter replied, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter….And he went outside and wept bitterly. – Luke 22:60-62 NIV
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.” John 21:15-17 NIV
Jesus meets us in our regrets and offers us a new start.
We have to own our regret in order to be healed of them
When we face our regrets a path to healing emerges for anyone who have been a part of our story of regret.
Because Jesus is alive, our regrets don’t have to have the final say.
