Luke 24:36-40“As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, ‘Peace to you!’ But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. And he said to them, ‘Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.’ And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.”
What are those things bringing chaos or doubt into your life? The ultimate doubt and chaos for Jesus’ disciples was “what’s next”. How many times have we tried to “give it up”, “let it go” or “get over it” one for time? What’s next?
Jesus tells is disciples not to be troubled and not to doubt. He simply showed himself and said “touch me”.
Today is an opportunity to reach out and experience His grace, mercy, love and care. Doubt? Reach out.
Galatians 2:20“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
We have the chance to emulate the character of Christ in us. Christ is an example to follow in life; when trials and tribulations come, when we feel discouraged when life is unjust, we should consider the sacrifice that Jesus has underwent.
