Everyone loves a comeback...

    Everyone loves a comeback...

    I love comeback stories--situations that seem destined to go one way but then something happens suddenly to divert the momentum from certain failure to sudden and unexpected success. Comebacks can take all sorts of shapes and sizes. 

    • Ludwig van Beethoven is considered one of the greatest composers of all time, but did you know that he began losing his hearing in his late 20s and was completely deaf within 10 years. Despite this, Beethoven managed to compose 700+ breathtaking symphonies.
    • During the 1948 U.S. presidential elections, much of the country was convinced that Thomas Dewey would defeat incumbent Harry Truman. The Chicago Tribune’s premature front page read “Dewey Beats Truman” in bold letters. As it turned out, Truman rallied late and came back to win a second term.
    • For the 1980 USA men’s ice hockey team, beating the high-powered Russian team was definitely legendary. What you may not know is that 13 days prior to that incredible 4-3 win, they lost to that same Russian team 10-3. Talk about a great comeback.

    This week, we’ll complete our study of the book of John (read ahead--we are in John 21). Jesus completed the mission He was called to, but there is one more comeback that needs to happen…

    Therefore, that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment and plunged into the sea.
