After his resurrection, Jesus showed himself to the disciples and helped them to see that the Old Testament prophecies were about him. Then he promised them the gift of the Spirit so that they could go out and tell others about what he had done for the world. Through the Word, Jesus is still helping us to understand the Scriptures. And through the power of the Spirit, he still gives people the courage to speak up about repentance and the need for a Savior but also that because Christ suffered and rose from the dead, forgiveness of sins is ours. And we become part of the communication team for sharing God’s free gift of grace with others. Sometimes we as individuals or congregations get distracted from our main purpose and get caught up in other things, but here Jesus points us to our main mission.
