The tragic events of Good Friday did not signal the
end of Jesus Christ's ministry to His disciples far
from it. Easter morning was the beginning of a unique
and important portion of Jesus' ministry on earth. For the
next forty days, until His glorious ascension to heaven,
Jesus appeared many times to His disciples. During this
precious period, Jesus taught His followers about the
requirements of discipleship, His own divine nature, and
the power they would soon need to expand the kingdom
of God "into all the world" (Mark 16:15). Today, we can
experience that same power to accomplish God's work.
Even more important, those forty days provide us with
the promise of His everlasting presence, for Jesus did not
say, "I will be with you," as one who has to go away and
come back again, but "Lo, I am with you alway, even unto
the end of the world" (Matthew 28:20), as a presence that
is never to be withdrawn.
