This meditation is based on 1 Peter 1:3-9 and John 20:19-31.
One cannot control the unknowns of the world, but one can control one’s response to them. In this second week of Easter the still wounded Jesus makes an appearance to his fearful, isolated, confused disciples who are hiding out in a locked room, wondering what to do.
To these men and the circumstances of Jesus arrest, trial and execution which occupy them, Jesus brings a word of peace. A peace that comes from knowing that in the end the course of history will end in salvation, redemption and resurrection. Jesus is the model of navigating that way of living so that our preferred futures are not lost to short term gain or unnecessary anxiety.
