Joe Dillon - May 16, 2021

Half Past Midnight

With just hours before his arrest and crucifixion, Jesus amps up his preparation of the eleven with encouragement and direction regarding how to carry on and complete the mission in his physical absence. He understands that they will grieve Jesus’ death and the loss of their companion and Guide, but he instructs them that, as with following the pains of child-birth, there is great reward and joy. Their joy will again be complete as they understand Jesus is returning to the Father, his mission accomplished, and for them to begin asking the Father for their needs and to do so bearing the authority which comes through the name of Jesus. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus responds to our prayers and petitions out of His love for us because of our love for his Son.
