Weekend Reflections for 4/10/15
April 10, 2015
When, out of fear, the disciples had locked themselves in the upper room, what might they have expected to happen? They didn't expect to see Jesus, it seems. But, as in every resurrection account in the Gospels, Jesus comes to them! He comes through locked doors with forgiveness and love. All he wishes for them is peace and "blessed assurance!"
When, out of fear of whatever afflicts us, we don't know what to expect, we can always remember that Jesus shows us his glorious wounds-- those wounds that heal us and bring life and hope. God's mercy is stronger than anything in the world, and we need to know that. And to rejoice in that knowledge!
