I wanted to write up an extremely insightful post about the deep spiritual message about Peter in the last few days of Jesus’s life on earth. Something about the time between when the rooster crowed and when he ran to the tomb to see if what he’d heard was true, that Jesus wasn’t there.
You see, Peter was a disciple, a devout follower of Jesus, and was willing to die for Him, as recorded in Luke 22:33. So I am trying to put myself in Peter’s position, with such a confidence in my relationship with Jesus.
Then you get to the part where a rooster crows and everything changes. Fast forward to a few days later and women who had gone to visit Jesus’s dead body in the tomb report that HIs body is no longer there. Those women tell the disciples and who was it running to the tomb? Peter.
So my questions for you are these:
- What happened in Peter’s mind and heart between the rooster crowing and the empty tomb?
- How can this part of Jesus’s life and story, relating to Peter and his own personal journey, be applied to our lives today, in 2018?
I’d truly love to get a conversation going in the comments and I will definitely be anxiously awaiting your take!
