Dear Friends, One month ago I thought zoom was a very fast car. But our lives have changed very rapidly. Above is the Thursday morning Bible study group doing Bible study by a social media app called Zoom. Thank the Lord people seeking to reach out to each other creatively. It is amazing that because of the resurrection of Jesus God’s Spirit has been poured out on all people and those who put their faith in Jesus receive the Spirit. Incredibly as we connect to Jesus we are spiritually connected to other people despite the lack of physical proximity. Our reading tonight is Luke 24:1-12 :- the women come to the tomb to anoint Jesus’ body as was the burial custom. They were not expecting to find the resurrected Jesus nor an empty tomb. What is quite beautiful is the way that the Lord helps these women understand what has happened and come to faith. God does the same with us for He knows we are full of doubts and fears but He helps us to believe by providing the eyewitness accounts of the Gospels and giving us His Spirit who helps us to believe ! Peter also struggled to comprehend what had happened. They were not gullible but eventually they believed because the evidence was overwhelming. In 1 Cor 15 Jesus appeared to his disciples many times to convince them & us.
