Amen Corner: Sunday Stewardship Inspiration

Real Joy

And as he said this, he showed them his hands and feet. While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed, he asked them, “Have you anything here to eat?”  This season of Easter joy is meant to be lived in real ways for all our days. Sunday’s opening Collect prayer says, “May your people exult forever.”  Jesus asking to eat food continues to show us how real he is, and how much he is part of our real lives… the routine and the special, the triumphs and the failures. Jesus is the Lord of all of it if we continually look to Him. He is trustworthy. He is our strength. Jesus is our reason for real joy.
