“Peace behind Closed Doors”

This Easter weekend reminds me of John 20:19-21. There the disciples are in seclusion behind locked doors, much like we are behind closed doors because of COVID-19. Yet, just as a beautiful sunrise gives us great joy, the SON rise of Jesus Christ can give us great joy! John 20:19 says, “On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews. . . .” Easter Sunday evening, Jesus’ disciples are in seclusion behind closed doors and they see the Son! Verse 19 continues, “Jesus came and stood among them and said to them ‘Peace be with you'” (ESV). There is peaceIMG_2744 and joy in Jesus Christ even behind closed doors, even in fearful days. Notice verse 20 continues, “. . . Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.” May you find peace in Jesus Christ this Easter weekend, even behind closed doors!
