Day 117 - John 20:1-31
Points to Ponder:
1. What is John trying to show us and teach us in this chapter?
2. What is Jesus trying to show and teach his disciples in this chapter?
3. How did the resurrection of Jesus change everything for those Jesus to whom Jesus appeared?
4. How does the resurrection of Jesus change you?
Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them what he had said to her. John 20:18
Lord Jesus, when the women and the disciples first went to the tomb they came with trudging feet and fearful hearts. The disciples ran to the tomb because they were afraid, and then they went home confused and still afraid. But once they knew that Jesus was alive, everything changed. Mary’s tears were dried and she couldn’t wait to tell the disciples and announce to them what she had seen and believed. Lord Jesus grant the same to me. Overflow my heart with resurrection confidence and courage to face this day. Grant me love and wisdom as I interact with people so that we can maintain the unity of the spirit and the bond of peace. Grant me courage and confidence to live and to serve today. Amen.
