Jesus Christ conquered death forever 2,000 years ago. The World were given new life in Christ when the stone was rolled away from the empty tomb.

After the resurrection, Jesus proclaimed "eternal salvation" through the disciples (Mark 16:8), and subsequently called the apostles to the Great Commission, as described in Matthew 28:16–20,[47] Mark 16:14–18,[48] Luke 24:44–49,[49] Acts 1:4–8,[50] and John 20:19–23,[51] in which the disciples received the call "to let the world know the good news of a victorious Saviour and the very presence of God in the world by the spirit."[52] 

According to these texts, Jesus says that they "will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you",[53] that "repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in [the Messiah's] name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem",[54] and that" if you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained".[55]

But what happened after that incident?
Discover five things Jesus did after His resurrection—and what they mean for us today below.

1. Christ showed up.
Jesus spent 40 days on earth after His resurrection. During this time, He eased His followers’ doubts and gave them direction for the future.

2. Jesus modeled community.
From breaking bread on the road to Emmaus, to having breakfast on the beach with His disciples, we see Jesus make time for relationships.

Jesus was never too busy to stop and show He cared. As His followers, we’re called to intentionally serve people in our families, workplaces, and cities.

3. Jesus comforted the broken.
When Jesus came back, He wasn’t frustrated that His disciples hadn’t understood His plan. He met them in their uncertainty and fear instead.

Jesus consoled the woman weeping at the empty tomb. He eased Thomas’ doubts. He spoke words of life and peace.

Today, our Savior still has grace for our questions and confusion. He still draws near when our hearts are broken. Talk to Jesus Christ now, your life will never remain the same again.

4. Jesus redeemed mistakes.
Before the crucifixion, Peter denied knowing Jesus three times. Later, we see Jesus restore Peter by asking Him three times if he loves Him, and instructing Peter to care for His flock.

Even though Peter stumbled in his faith, it didn’t cancel his identity in Christ.

In the same way, we can trust that God’s power is made perfect in our weakness.

5. Jesus instructed and empowered.
Right before Jesus ascended into heaven, He told His followers to “go and make disciples of every nation.”

With these instructions, we’re called to live every day with intentionality, looking for opportunities to share the Gospel.

It’s our job to show people what it means to know God and to make Him known.

Easter might be over, but what it means for us matters all year long.
Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we’re able to access God’s grace, presence, and reassurance like never before.
