Crushed, guilt-ridden, fearful and defeated; This summarizes the condition of the disciples' hearts on that first Sunday evening after Christ was crucified. Yet, in the midst of their heartache and confusion, Jesus appeared offering them new hope. "As the Father sent Me, I now send you." In that moment, He recharged their batteries, lifted their spirits and empowered their living. He knew they blew it at the most critical time but instead of chastising them, He came bringing them new life!
