With Jesus suddenly gone the disciples go into hiding, fearful of being exposed and forgetting what they have been called to live out. The doubts are creeping in and the fear starts to lead to unbelief, but then Jesus walks in, through a locked door, and interrupts everything. We, too, can allow the fears of life to lead us into unbelief and hiding, not living out the lives of love and sacrifice He has called us to. If it were up to us, we would likely stay in those locked rooms of fear, but thankfully Jesus goes where He pleases, and our fear cannot keep Him out. If you are part of Jesus' flock, nothing can or will keep Him from working in and through your life!

ABOUT THIS SERIES: The Gospel of John was written "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing in Him you may have life in His Name" (John 20.30). The Apostle John, as an eyewitness and close friend of Jesus', desires for us to behold His beauty, love, and glory, and believe in His power and willingness to being forgiveness and life. As we journey through the Gospel of John, we will behold the life, teachings, works, and ministry of Jesus, and will hear straight from Him who He said He is, so that we would more deeply put our hope and trust in the Man who is God.
