THE MESSAGE

THE MINISTRY OF THE RISEN CHRIST TO HIS DISCIPLES

*************************************************

1.REASSURANCE

The Risen Christ ministered faith and reassurance to His disciples. The disciples had been in fear and doubt after the crucifixion of Jesus .Even after Christ had risen from the dead , the disciples had needless fears . Instead of being filled with courage and boldness as a result of the resurrection of Christ , they were filled with fear over everything . The risen Christ ministered faith to his disciples and removed their fears. The Lord wants us to be free from all fears in our lives , because we have a risen Lord who is there to deliver us from all fears.

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!" ’

2.REST

The Risen Christ ministered rest and peace to His disciples. The disciples were troubled and distressed after the crucifixion of Jesus . The risen Christ ministered peace to the hearts of his disciples . Even today the Lord wants to minister peace to our troubled hearts . He has promised to give us His own peace which is different from the peace which the world gives. The peace of God can fill our hearts even in the midst of trials and tribulations . It is like being inside an air-conditioned room when the weather is hot outside. The heat outside does not affect us as long as we are inside the cool air-conditioned room . In the same way the peace of God can dwell inside our hearts even when we face great tribulations outside .

3.REJOICING

The Risen Christ ministered joy to His disciples and turned their mourning into rejoicing. The disciples were in great sorrow and mourning after the crucifixion of Jesus.Even after Christ had risen from the dead , the disciples had needless sorrow. Instead of celebrating with joy and gladness the victory of Jesus over death , they were in mourning and sorrow .But the risen Christ ministered joy to his disciples . Even in our lives the Lord wants us to free from needless sorrow .We should be filled with the joy of the Lord because we have a risen Lord who fills us with joy and peace. He wants to remove the sorrow and sadness in our hearts and replace it with the joy of the Lord. The Apostle Paul was in prison when he wrote the epistle to the Phillippians and he told them to rejoice in the Lord always. He did not allow his sufferings in prison to take away the joy of the Lord in his heart. The Lord was his source of joy and his painful circumstance could not take his joy away.
