 A Man Called Peter – The Touch of the Master’s Hand

1 - "You Will Be Called Peter"

John 1:40-42 - This sermon begins a series on the life of Peter. This sermon gives a brief background and looks at Peter's first encounter with Jesus when Jesus gives him a new name.

Mark 1:16-39 - Soon after Peter's call to follow Jesus he was taught three very important first lessons in discipleship.

4 - "To Walk on Water, You Must Get Out of the Boat"

The Christian life is supposed to be an adventure in which we walk by faith and step into the unknown. But we can't do that if our lack of faith keeps us in the boat.

5 - "Who Is Jesus"

Matthew 16:13-20 - With God's help Peter answered the most important question that all of us must answer - Who is Jesus?

7 - "We Have Seen His Glory"

Luke 9:28-36 - God's glory can be seen and experienced through worshiping and serving.

8 - "That Sounds Fishy!"

Matthew 17:24-27 - There was a lot for Peter and for us to learn from the fish with a coin in its mouth!

9 - "Nowhere Else to Go"

John 6:15-69 - Just like Peter learned, there really isn't anywhere else to go and no one else to go to, other than Jesus.

10 - "Peter Learns to Serve"

John 13:1-34 - When Jesus washed Peter's feet, he learned that he needed cleansing and that he needed to become a servant like Jesus.

11 - "Hope for the Fallen"

1 John 1:7-9 - Peter's denial of Jesus gives us the perfect example of how a person who falls can be forgiven and start over.

12 - "Peter’s Wonderful Surprise"

Mark 16:1-7, Luke 24:30-35, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, 1 John 1:5-10 - After denying Jesus three times, Peter must have felt that Jesus would want nothing more to do with him, but on resurrection morning Peter received two wonderful surprises that told him he couldn't be more wrong about that.

13 - "A New Beginning"

John 21:1-23; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 - Even after Peter's wonderful surprises when Jesus was raised from the dead, he was still struggling to get past his failure. In John 21, we see Jesus giving Peter the opportunity to be reinstated to his role of apostle and leader.

14 - "A New and Improved Peter"

Acts 1:3-22, Acts 2:1-16, 2 Corinthians 3:18 - When Pentecost arrived, Peter was a changed man. In this sermon, we explore what brought about the transformation.

Acts 5:12-16, Acts 9:32-42, Acts 5:1-11, Acts 9:9-24 - Peter's influence on the early church cast a long shadow for good.

16 - "Time For A Big Change"

Acts 10:1-48; Acts 11:1-18 - When Peter was sent to the home of Cornelius, God was trying to change Peter's and the churches perspectives toward Gentiles. Peter had some prejudices against Gentiles that needed to change. Perhaps we also have biases and prejudices that God wants to change.

17 - "God is in Control"

Acts 12:1-25, 1 Peter 3:12 - In this sermon on Acts 12 and Peter's miraculous escape from prison, we wrestle with the truth that God is in control. This leads to a lot of assurance, but it also leads to trust.

2 Peter 1:3-3:11 - In this summary of the series on the life of Peter, we explore the end of Peter's life left to us through history and tradition, and we explore how to leave a legacy like Peter's.
