Know God in a Year #255 Finding Fulfilment

Before his death, Jesus had set up a time and place to meet his followers in Galilee. He had been followed by a large number of people off and on, and he wanted them to see him, risen, and hear his commission.
The angels at His empty tomb reminded the women of this meeting, sending a message about it to the others. Spirit spread the word quickly among his followers in Jerusalem, many only there for Passover.
When the time comes, about 500 believers are gathered in small groups on the mountainside, eager to hear from those who had seen Him. The disciples go excitedly from group to group, sharing what they have seen and experienced of their risen Lord. Thomas shares his unbelief and how it was swept away.
Suddenly Jesus is there!
They recognize him, and yet His face is as the face of God. He shows them His hands and feet–the marks of His crucifixion. He reviews the prophecies about him, ending with a triumphant, “All power in heaven and on earth is given to Me.”
Seeing and hearing Him who was dead is thrilling, giving force to His words. He commissions each of them: “Go and teach everyone everywhere, sharing what I have taught you! Baptize them into the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And know that I am with you always to the end of the world.”
Rejoice in the assurance of His continual Love and Presence! Here is his will for you! Invite others into His arms and His heart. Here is fulfillment.
1Corinthians 15:6,  Matthew 28:16-20
