Scripture Union Daily Guide 2ND APRIL 2024 OUTLINE

When the disciples locked themselves up for fear, “Jesus came and stood among them” (v.19). What scares us in life and causes us to fear or hide? May we notice Jesus standing with us—as a family, a church, or as an individual. For He promises, “Never will I leave you or forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
Notice, however, that “the disciples were together” (v.19). Fellowship, “not neglecting to meet together as is the habit of some” (Hebrews 10:25) strengthens our faith. How does this lack of fellowship affect Thomas (vs.24-29)? While the world says, “Seeing is believing”, Jesus says, “Believing is seeing!”—that is faith.
Jesus’ greeting, “Peace be with you” (v.20) is great blessing. When troubles overwhelm us, as it overwhelmed the disciples, may we experience Christ’s peace, as He promises in John 14:26, 27.

Notice the charge the risen Christ gave to His disciples which we have inherited (vs.21-23)? Jesus breathed on His disciples to receive the Holy Spirit (v.22) to empower them to go and make disciples of all nations. For the role of the Holy Spirit in fulfilling the Great Commission, see Acts 1:8.
Read vs.30-31 and note the need for signs and why they are recorded in the Scriptures.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Lord Jesus, please let your peace dwell richly in our souls and breathe your Holy Spirit on us, that we may be effective witnesses.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Psalm 37: 4 ‐ 5
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
