I love it that Jesus showed up to his disciples and allowed them to acknowledge their doubt and to see his hands and his feet and his side. He shared with them how it all fit together from the OT prophesies to his resurrection. He promised that His spirit would be on them… and then took them out to Bethany – outside of town – and blessed them and ascended into heaven. What joy! What energy – and the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead was now theirs! And ours! WOW!
“Open my eyes…empower my spirit with your spirit… and help me see your power instead of my helpless state! You want to use ME! Here I am, fill me and use me. Amen”
