The resurrected Jesus spends time with His friends and followers in private, helping them be restored to peace. This shows the value Jesus placed on personal relationships. John states the purpose of his eyewitness account, in hope that it would be helpful, for the belief in Jesus as Messiah, “that you will have life by the power of His name”. Salvation and eternal life are coming to us if we will believe in Jesus as the Son of God and receive Him as Lord. John understood the essential nature of this simple truth. Jesus is the Savior. Let us daily hear the call to look at Jesus in this way.
