The First Sunrise on the First Easter

Yesterday was the 28th year that I celebrated Jesus as my Risen Lord.  Every year, I take a moment to think about how it must have been for Jesus.  That first moment that He saw the sunrise in a resurrected body, through resurrected eyes.

Eyes that held ancient eternity and recent humanity.

Now He would walk on the road and walk thru walls to meet His followers.

His mission was not done.

His work on the cross was finished but His relationship revolution with humanity had just begun.

He showed His disciples His nail-scarred hands. He walked with them on the road and opened the Scriptures to them.

Before He ascended to Heaven, Jesus told them the plan:
“Go and I will go with you.”

Where is Jesus asking you to go?
Who is Jesus asking you to tell?
Who is Jesus asking you to teach?
Who is Jesus asking you to baptize?

Q. What happened after the Resurrection?

A. The Great Commission

Go and let nothing stop you.
