  • FOR US TO NAVIGATE AS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:33.040
  • IS THE FLUCTUATION BETWEEN SIN AND WHOLENESS.

  • SOMETIMES, WE RESPOND TO LIFE SPIRITUALLY,
  • 00:01:36.140 --> 00:01:38.250

  • BY THIS TIME, PETER WAS GRIEVED,
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:31.220
  • BECAUSE HE SAID TO HIM THE THIRD TIME, "DO YOU LOVE ME?"
  • 00:03:31.250 --> 00:03:35.010
  • PETER SAID TO JESUS, "LORD, YOU KNOW ALL THINGS.
  • 00:03:35.040 --> 00:03:37.150
