“PEACE IN TIMES OF CRISIS”. Part 1 : Tuesday April 14

John 20:19 NKJV

“Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you”

The faith of the apostles was put to test immediately after the resurrection of Jesus. They could not withstand the process of the persecution and trials of our Lord Jesus and the after effects of what the Jews could come up with. Fears overwhelmed what they witnessed and their thoughts of the whole episode of torture from the arrest to crucification of Jesus.

As a result, they shut the doors against themselves. The other followers and believes would have also done the same thing. If the faith of the Apostles was tested in trying times, then no one could possibly be exempted from his/her faith being tested any time.

Fear gripped the apostles and others behind the shut doors and it continued until Jesus appeared to them with the assurance of “Peace be with you”. The appearance of Jesus was the answer to what they needed at the times of the crisis that rocked Jerusalem because of the resurrection. Jesus was the answer in the Bible days and still the answer for peace in our days. Amen.
