It was a footrace.  The anxious excitement probably lent extra speed to their sandaled feet.  Mary Magdalene’s news of the missing body startled them and shook them out of their grief-induced stupor that saw them huddled with the other disciples in a closed room.  So Peter and John just had to see for themselves.  John pulled ahead and got there first.  The stone indeed was rolled to one side, so he looked inside, but hesitated to enter.  Peter, impetuous, shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later Peter, barreled past John and stepped right into the semi-dark coolness of the tomb.  He was greeted by an incredible sight.  The stone resting place was there.  The grave clothes were there, neatly arranged.  But Jesus was gone, just as Mary had reported.  Peter saw it all and, according to Luke 24:12, went away wondering.  On the other hand John 20:8 tells us, “Then went in also that other disciple which came first to the sepulcher [John himself], and he saw, and believed.”  Peter and John saw the same thing, but as someone said, “Peter had sight, but John had insight.”  Easter’s dawn and the empty tomb brought a new dawning of faith and hope to the heart of this disciple.  Do you find yourself in the same room with those disciples?  Huddled with heartache, despair, grief, burdens, anxiety, not sure what’s happened or why it’s happened?  On this Resurrection Sunday, run with John and Peter to the tomb.  See the stone rolled away.  Stoop and look inside.  See what they saw.  He’s no longer there!  Our Lord really is alive!  Don’t just see it; believe it.  Then, let that fact give you a glorious dawning of faith for what you’re facing.  Look with the beloved John and believe.  Remember, it was the resurrected Lord who said, “Lo, I am with you alway.”
