  • The resurrection account of Jesus contains two words that make all the difference in Simon Peter’s life. The women had come to anoint the body of Jesus. They were amazed to find the tomb empty as an angelic being announced Jesus’ resurrection. The two words that make all the difference is “and Peter.”

    “Go tell the disciples ... and Peter” (Mark 16:7).

    Why are these words there? Peter had denied Jesus in the hour of testing and needed to be encouraged. He needed a new beginning and a second chance.

  • They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31.

    Soaring: Birds have three ways of flying; flapping their wings to counteract gravity. This isn’t particularly graceful and it’s a lot of work.
