Behind Closed Doors
Faith is a tricky thing, we think we have faith and then when we deal with something greater than we have faced before, we realise that we don’t have the faith we think we have. Faith is not easy, you have to struggle for it at times when you walk a thin line of doubt, when you don’t know what is going to happen. The disciples are assembled behind bolted doors afraid that what has happened to Jesus is going to happen to them. I also see the modern church gathered together behind closed doors in a huddle because of fear. Jesus appeared to those assembled and said to the disciples and also says to us, peace be with you. Let the peace of Jesus come upon us the next time we are afraid and paralysed by fear. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ (who brings peace) and his church.
