Second Wind – Part 1

SETTING THE STAGE
In John chapter 20 Jesus spoke to His disciples & then did something very different, He breathed on them and said, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost”. Then later, just before His Ascension back to the Father, He commanded the disciples to tarry in Jerusalem until they were endured with power from on high. Apparently, there was something else coming!

WHAT IS A “SECOND WIND”?
This phrase is usually attached to an endurance sport such as running. The phenomenon has come to be used as a metaphor for continuing on with renewed energy past the point thought to be one’s prime whether in sports or life in general. Most of us have heard this phrase before. We say things like, “well, I seem to have found my second wind to finish this project”. So how does this apply to us spiritually?
