Tuesday: Psalm 81-82 & John 20:19-23

From Natasha Cassamajor

“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…”

I have to stop right there with the above scripture before finishing that 1st verse to say isn’t that amazing? Isn’t it amazing that Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, did not let a locked door keep Him from being with the disciples? I have to confess that I am overjoyed by the resurrection every Easter season. Every year I look forward to seeing how Jesus reveals His resurrected body to the disciples. My prayer for you as you read this today is that Jesus would reveal His resurrected body to you. Christ has risen and He is here to set us free from the burden of sin.

Tonight I reminded my neighborhood group that I cannot remember the historical details of the account of the resurrection as outlined in the sermon. Other than what’s written in the gospels, I will not remember a single detail/argument for the resurrection but I do know that our Savior came and showed his resurrected body. Like He did with the disciples in that locked room, Jesus wants us to see Him and He wants to say “Peace be with you.” In the midst of our broken world, broken hearts and our locked doors, I pray that we would see Jesus.  Like the disciples in verse 20 who “were glad when they saw the Lord,” we too shall rejoice when we see Him in our midst.

 

I have been seeing a lot of plays lately and hope to see one on Broadway by the end of May. Let’s talk more about theater.
