God’s Mercy Over Our Failures – Part 2

Have you ever wondered how God responds to our failures?

Join us for Part 2 of our exploration of the truly magnificent mercy of God in the face of our biggest mistakes. We all mess up—sometimes through our own actions, sometimes through others, and sometimes through no fault at all. Last week, we looked at Peter’s denial of Jesus and how he found his way back through God’s mercy. This week, we’ll dive into how Jesus responds to our failures. Whether you feel overwhelmed by guilt or simply need encouragement, join us and discover the incredible, transformative power of God’s mercy.


  1. What does it mean that Jesus isn’t shocked by our failures? How does this understanding impact how we view our own mistakes?
  2. How does knowing that Jesus prays for us change our perspective on facing challenges and temptations?
  3. What can we learn from Jesus believing in Peter’s future despite his failures? How does this belief encourage us in our own spiritual walk?
  4. Discuss the significance of Jesus’ words to Peter: “When you have repented and turned to me again.” How does this phrase emphasize restoration and hope?
  5. Why do you think Jesus included Peter specifically when telling the women to inform the disciples about His resurrection? What does this reveal about Jesus’ character?
  6. Reflect on the story of Jesus serving breakfast to His disciples after their failures. What does this act of kindness and mercy teach us about Jesus’ response to our own failures?
  7. How does the repeated questioning of Peter’s love by Jesus help to restore and reaffirm Peter? What can this teach us about the process of reconciliation?
  8. In what ways can we show mercy to others who have failed, following Jesus’ example with Peter?
  9. How does Jesus’ use of Peter’s failures to build His church encourage us to see purpose in our own failures?
  10. What steps can we take to ensure our failures lead to growth and strengthening of our faith community, similar to Peter’s experience?
