The Risen King Sends His People / John 20:19-23


Jesus spoke to His disciples on the evening of the day He was raised again to new life. The instructions Jesus gave His disciples reflect the mission of God that drives the storyline of the Bible. God the Father sends His Son, God the Son sends His people into the world, and the Father and the Son send the Spirit to empower us for mission. As followers of Jesus, we are a sent people who are being formed in the image of our sending God and our suffering Savior. We are not alone on our mission but are all the while empowered by the Spirit of God.
