"Then Were The Disciples Glad"
The disciples were a band of poor men and women, disowned and disinherited by their families, maligned by their neighbors, and persecuted for their faith. They had nothing of this world's comforts. They met in secrecy, behind closed doors, for fear of the Jews. Yet, something made them glad. When the Lord Jesus revealed himself to them, spoke peace to them, and showed them his hands and his side, "Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD." When they saw their redemption accomplished by Christ and realized the love and grace it revealed, they were glad. What makes you glad?
