We see the story of Peter and experience the smell of charcoal on a beach while Jesus is cooking fish. We see that Jesus restores us where we have failed, and from there, He sends us out to where He is already working.
We all have that friend, the one who is impulsive, the one who talks before he thinks. Peter is that friend. When Peter really messes up, all things seem lost, but a heavenly messenger from inside the tomb says something profound.
Do we really understand what is happening? People are yelling, “Save us from our Roman oppressors.” The religious leaders are plotting to kill Jesus to keep the Romans happy. And Mary is wasting burial perfume on someone alive.
