Unfolding Victory: The Days After the Resurrection – A Daily Devotion

Scripture: Luke 24: 1-8

“After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.” – Acts 1:3 (NIV)


On this new day, we delve into the dynamic and life-changing days following Jesus’ resurrection. It was a time when doubt was conquered by conviction, and fear replaced with supreme faith.

The stone rolled away from the tomb wasn’t just an announcement of Jesus’s resurrection but also marked the unfolding of a new chapter in humanity’s salvation history. It revealed an open door for everyone to step from death to life, from bondage to freedom, and from despair to hope.

In those forty days after His resurrection, Jesus presented Himself alive through many convincing proofs – appearing to Mary Magdalene (John 20:11-18), on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35), and later before His disciples (John 20:19-29). He shattered their sorrow with his Living Presence. He transformed their confusion into clarity, confirming His message about the kingdom of God.

In each encounter, we see the Lord providing reassurance and peace. When Thomas doubted, Jesus invited him towards faith by asking him to touch His wounds. And when Peter felt guilt-ridden due to his past denials of Christ, Jesus restored him through a conversation filled with love and forgiveness during a breakfast at sea (John 21).

These appearances weren’t only about proving His physical resurrection but also aimed at empowering His disciples for what was ahead—the birth of the Church at Pentecost after He would ascend into heaven.

As we navigate our daily lives today amid uncertainties or doubts like those early disciples might have had post-resurrection, may we remember that we serve a risen Savior who has already won the victory. His resurrection was not an isolated event but a divine setup for His continuing work in this world through us.

Let us trust and lean into the Living Christ, knowing He continually reassures us of His presence, guides us into truth, and imparts courage for our journey.


Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for Your resurrection victory over sin and death. Help us to understand and appreciate more deeply the significance of Your post-resurrection days on earth. May we experience Your living presence in our lives, transforming our doubts into faith, fear into courage, and despair into hope. Empower us to live as witnesses of your love in our daily lives. In your mighty name, we pray. Amen.
