Easter 2014 – Resurrection: Second Chances
Where Do We Want To Go With Our Resurrection?
Before the disciples can go out, Jesus comes to them and restores their hearts. Jesus comes and gives them the power and confidence in what they are to do next. He makes them the people they need to be – people prepared and strengthened to take Gospel of Jesus to the world.
On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”
