After Jesus met with them and taught them from the scriptures, He ascended to Heaven. Did you note the difference in their location? Remember yesterday’s note from John 20:19? They were so afraid that they were “holed” up behind locked doors afraid for their lives. Do you see the difference time with Him made? Where were they at the end of the chapter? Look at verses 52 and 53. What a difference time with Jesus makes. He broke through their fears and doubts and encouraged them, empowering them to stand for Him and be witnesses of Him. Does He “change your life” everyday? Do you spend time with Him, allowing Him to encourage and empower you to stand for Him?
