Tell The Disciples and Peter

Our preacher today, Carl Bosteels, pointed out in these verses of the Gospel of Mark how the angel commanded the women at the tomb to tell the disciples AND Peter. Peter was a disciple, of course, so it is significant that this separate identification and exhortation to Peter was made.

But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ” (‭Mark‬ ‭16‬:‭7‬ NIV)

I think we all need the same exortation to go and tell. It is a commandment and imperative which must not simply be left to others.
