The Risen Lord Gives Us a Joyful Message
In this passage, we find the disciples hiding in a locked room “for fear of the Jewish leaders” (v. 19). Mary remains at the tomb weeping (v .11). What will it take to turn their sadness into joy? The appearance of the risen Christ and the words he speaks to his people. And that is what we find in the verses we have read today. Therefore, as we celebrate another Easter together, let’s listen as the risen Lord gives us a joyful message.
