He saw and believed.

He saw and believed.
“So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. … Finally, the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)  Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.” John 20:3-9 (NIV)
Another reminder from the resurrection morning celebrations.
Both Peter and John ran to the tomb.
Even though John got there first, he did not initially enter.
Peter entered first but did not understand what had happened.
John came in later, he saw and believed.
What made Peter puzzled, and John believed?
Our perception and thought process?
Do you immediately grasp what is going on?
Do you have to reason it out like the other disciples?
Thank God, the Owner of the Church, our Lord, and Savior, worked with the two.
Again unlike both of them that day, they did not have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them at that time.
You and I are living under such a tremendous grace in that the Holy Spirit is our helper.
Great if on some issues you understand and belive like John did.
However, don’t take off on AWOL (absent from one’s post but without intent to desert.) like Peter did.
You can call upon God, and HE will explain what is puzzling to you.
Much more, HE will strengthen you to fulfill your God-given destiny.
Sometimes in life on different issues, you find both John and Peter in you.
You can have family, friends, and team members on different levels of belief.
Work with them  
With the overcoming Love and Power from our Risen Savior:
 ALL WILL BE WELL.
