Max Lucado – When the Disciples Saw Jesus

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

John 20:19 says, “On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together with the doors locked for fear of the Jews…”  Did you know that the church of Jesus Christ began with a group of frightened men in a second-floor room in Jerusalem?   Upper-room futility….a little bit of faith but very little fire.

How many congregations today have just enough religion to come together, but not enough passion to go out?  What is needed to get us out is exactly what got the apostles out.  They saw Jesus.  The stone of the tomb couldn’t keep him in.  The walls of the room couldn’t keep him out.  He came to commission them to remember.  To remember that he who was dead is alive; and they, who were guilty, have been forgiven.
