Peter: To Be Transformed

Who among us would not want to be changed for the better? In this final installment of the Real-life Overcomers series, Ptr. Jared Co uses the life of Peter to explain who can be transformed, how transformation happens, and what we would need to be transformed by the Lord as Peter was.

Read Today’s Scripture Passage

Matthew 4:19, Luke 5:11, Mark 8:31-38, John 21:15-19
