Message: What Jesus Does with Failure – Jesus Can Restore

Failure is an event, it is not a destiny. What we do next is what really matters. Failure does not mean you give up. Failure does not mean that God has abandoned you. Failure can be a prerequisite to success!

You know the story about Peter? He was responsible for his actions (denying Jesus). Jesus is responsible for restoring.  How does Jesus restore His disciple?  


  1. Jesus sent for him – Mark 16:7
  2. Jesus met with him – Luke 24:34
  3. Jesus challenged him – John 21:4-6
  4. Jesus reinstated him – John 21:15-17
  5. Jesus reenlisted him – John 21:19

Jesus hadn’t given up on Peter, and Jesus hasn’t given up on you. What does Jesus do when we fail? Jesus can restore you. 

“The Lord allows us to fail in our own strength so that we may learn that only by His power will we ever succeed.” – Carl McCray
