Second Sunday of Easter 2014 – John 20:19-20

Monday, April 21, 2014

The scripture selections for the second Sunday of Lent this year include: Acts 2:14a, 22-32, Psalm 16, 1 Peter 1:3-9 , John 20:19-31.

John 20:19-20When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.

In those first days after Jesus’ crucifixion, the disciples were scared, and who among us wouldn’t be feeling the same way? After all, Jesus had suffered a heinous death. Despite their denials and their fears, Jesus still came to them after his resurrection.

Steadfast God, thank you for remaining by our side even when we are hiding from you. Amen.
