Re:Verse passage – John 20:1-21 (day seven)

Twice in this week’s text Jesus speaks peace over His disciples (v.19, 21).  Peace was, and still is a personal greeting in the Middle East, but this was far more than a “hello”.  In this salutation Jesus’ creative voice calms fears and drives evil away just like His voice stilled the choppy waters on the Sea of Galilee.

Tucked away in a locked room the disciples were afraid of what was next, much like we fear our unknown futures or a perceived difficulty that lies in front of us.  However, whatever may be next for you, God is well aware of the hurdles ahead and remains the author of peace for those that are His.

One thought on “Peace”

  1. I love the way you say that our Lord is still in control over all that we may fear even today. I’ve dealt with some issues serious to me though minor to others recently and as I lay my head down at night and wonder how many hours I will toss and turn worried about the future and the stuff that’s bothering me, I say to myself “God is bigger than all of these concerns Pam and yet He cares about me and will handle it all…go to sleep!”
    Thanks Chris to shedding even more great light on God’s care for each one of His children.
