Monday Devotional

“So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, ‘Peace be with you'” (John 20:19).

Just three days from their abandonment of Jesus, I think it’s significant that following the resurrection the first word Jesus spoke to his disciples was one of grace, Jesus knew that guilt and shame are terrible encumbrances; they stifle and strangulate the human spirit. In the place of these, Jesus offers his disciples unbroken love, forgiveness and acceptance.
