one foot

Thursday May 1st,  John 20: 19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!" 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. I imagine that the first response, right after Jesus came among them, inside the locked room, behind the locked doors, and spoke “Peace,” and then showed them his hands and side, that the first response was not one of being overjoyed.  I imagine the first response was utter fear.  Overjoyed might have been the second response, but not the first.  Jesus comes into our lives each and every day.  Jesus comes with the message of “Peace” and then for us to go out into the world.   Our response is to ignore.  But Jesus does come, Jesus does show us the cost, the hands and feet and Jesus does say Go, it’s your turn.  And Jesus waits…………………………. We may experience fear, but once we set one foot in front of the other, there is joy.
