“Why are you troubled…it is I Myself, Touch Me, and see.” Luke 24:38
Scripture shares, “eight days later, his disciples were inside again” John 20:26 surely, during these eight days of fear from persecution, wonder at the empty tomb, and doubts of the risen Lord, they shared much discussions.
In the midst of their burdens, emotions and considerations, Jesus, Himself, came to lift their fears and settle their hearts. “Touch Me and see.” Assuredly He speaks the same to you today, “Touch Me and see.” Reaching up, drawing near to the One Who calls your name…“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 (ESV)
