Peace in the Midst

“And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came,
the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” John 20:26

This was the third time that the Risen Christ used these comforting words to calm His fearful, confused, and doubting disciples. Though they spent time at the feet of the Master Himself, how soon they forgot the lessons that they had been taught! Huddled behind closed doors, they hear this reassuring message providing them peace in the midst of ear (v. 19), peace in the midst of conflict (v. 21) and peace in the midst of doubt (v. 26) What patience and love He has for us.

“Sure I must fight, if I would reign; increase my courage Lord;
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain, supported by thy Word. – Isaac Watts
