Light and darkness cannot mix. “When the dawn comes, tonight will be a memory too. And a new day will begin” (Trevor Nunn, ‘Cats’ musical). The Disciples are living in their own ‘darkness’ of fear, confusion and despair after the crucifixion of Jesus. The resurrected Lord now appears to the disciples (Lk. 24:35-48). As the light overcomes the darkness in Genesis 1, so now Jesus - the Light of the world - dispels their night with a new day. The new day is one that is filled with the peace that only Jesus imparts. He gave this gift not only then, to the disciples who were troubled and had questions in their hearts, but also now, to every one of us who believe in the power of His resurrection. We too have questions and are troubled about our current circumstances in this Coronavirus pandemic. But if we stay focussed and look to the Lord, He will guide us by His brilliant light of love. Lord Jesus, may the light of Your mercy and love fill my mind and heart, so that I will not yield to despair or doubt, but walk in the confidence of Your grace and peace. Amen.
