Sunday September 12th: Second Wind

It is only from experiences like these that one can answer like Peter: You are the Christ!

Mark 8:27-35

All they heard at Caesarea Philippi was that ‘He will be killed’ and followers gone. Real livers are people who remain to face death bravely, lose everything and rise up to consider their life a gift, a second wind. They live better, with a clearer purpose. Like soldiers coming home from war; people surviving major surgery or recovering from death dealing diseases; survivors of long Covid. They now take the time to discover ‘who am I?’ and ‘who do people say I am?’
Real livers in the faith are those who ‘lose their lives’ for the sake of the Gospel. Whistle blowers, reporters of crime and corruption. They indeed have saved their lives. They begin to live purposefully. Life takes on new meaning. Especially those essential health and emergency workers who put themselves on the line despite no pay raise, little PPE, knowing that they too can die. They sacrifice their life to save others.
It is only from experiences like these that one can answer like Peter: You are the Christ!
