16 For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
They say the Lord in action first hand. What was it like? Did he whistle while he walked with them? Did he snore? More importantly, what did they learn personally about him that no one else ever knew? What was it like to walk beside and live with a perfect man? Was it intimidating or refreshing? Once Peter figured it out, did he question him incessantly?
With that first hand experience, though, came a ton of responsibility. The Gospel resided with them. If they didn’t get the message out, it would stay with them forever. Talk about pressure! We are indirect descendants of their work. Hallelujah!
But the Gospel doesn’t stop with us.
Or does it?
