THEME: DO NOT DISAPPOINT GOD.
TEXT: John 21:3-4, 15
3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, [son] of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
It is during the times of trials and persecutions that true Christians are made manifest. people who come for miracles and stomach infrastructure easily disappointed and take cover at safe places.
in the text above, Simon Peter, the leader of the Apostles decided to go back into his fishing business after our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified. At that time Christ was yet to ascend to Heaven and send the comforter. When he announced going back to fishing, Jesus Christ was disappointed. consequently he appeared in the morning. He made them catch enough fish, He feed them and asked Peter whether he loved Him more than food. When the answer came in affirmative he asked him, Peter to feed His lambs.
Peter came back to his duty post and did exploits for Christ in spreading the gospel.
In your own case as a Christian, have you abandoned your pulpit for import business? Have you dropped you megaphone for your secular job, if you do that you have disappointed Christ but you can back to your life.
* Pray that God will help you keep to your calling.
* Ask God to give you the courage to be strong even during trying times.

Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce
(A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman?
Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.
If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me:
Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins.
Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore.
I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior.
I surrender my life to you.
Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven.
