2023 THEME: Victory!
Series: To and From the Cross
TITLE: The Sting of Failure
Scripture: Matthew 26:69-75
I. FAILURE IS A FACT
Let’s talk about failure:
1. Failure is a fact in (the Bible).
2. Failure is a fact of (experience).
II. FAILURE IS FORGIVEN
Jesus predicted both (Judas’ betrayal) and (Peter’s denial).
Not only is failure a (fact), not only is failure (foreseen), failure is also (forgiven).
1. Jesus prayed for Peter’s (faith).
2. Jesus probed for Peter’s (love).
There is a little bit of Peter (in all of us). We brim over with (pride). We think (we are better)
than someone else. We tell ourselves that we haven’t really (done anything) that bad.
