Life after Transition

17 11 2012

Today we finish our series on transition as we look once again at Jesus the man, as he interacted with his disciples after his resurrection in John chapter 20.

After Jesus had greeted them again, he said, “I am sending you, just as the Father has sent me.” Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

 Joh 20:21-22

After Jesus died, the disciples did not know what the scriptures said about Jesus being raised to life. Often in transition, we are just as shocked as his disciples were about seeing Jesus. We think transition is the end of a relationship when in reality it can be the beginning of an even deeper one, as with disciples receiving the Holy Spirit.

In our lives it is tough to walk with someone when they are leaving, whether it is leaving a job, a marriage or a church. We must work through our feelings, as with Thomas who had to see his hands, or Peter who needed to be cleansed of his shame. We must understand God intends for transitions to bring greater blessings so we must choose to stay in relationship during and after transition.

Jesus had to choose to come back and interact with his disciples, which he did with joy and the disciples had to choose to recognize and accept his presences in their lives after the transition had happened for the blessing to be secure!

May you always receive God’s blessings as you walk through transition!
