John 20:19-22 NIV
[19] On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” [20] After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. [21] Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” [22] And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

Overjoyed……I would guess there is no word strong enough to describe their feelings!
They were in fear but Jesus gives them peace. They mourned but he gave them joy. They were alone but he gave them the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever……

Lord Jesus, I need your peace, your joy and your presence today…..
