flowerThomas was not with the others the first time
Jesus joined the disciples in the locked room.
Thomas told them he would not believe
unless he saw Jesus and touched His wounds.

Today we do not see and cannot touch the wounds of our Lord.
Today we have the written record, the Bible, that we may believe.
When we believe what is written we have life in His name.

Were you a doubting Thomas?
When did you stop doubting and believe?

Blessings this day of grace,

  1. I must confess that I have not always been consistent with my believing, yet my faith remains guarded by God – as He promised in Phlp4. I’ve always gotten a kick out of the “Doubting Thomas” addition by some editor a century or more ago. Ten disciples doubted Jesus, requiring proof even with Thomas being absent, if you recall.

    I recall upon hearing the words, a young man I know was taken aback by the outrageousness of the Resurrection. “That did not really happen, did it?” He later surrendered to Jesus, to God’s glory.

    Thanks again for the provoking thought, and your continuing mission to bless the Body.

    1. Is God not amazing! He knows we are by nature doubters so He gave us the Holy Spirit to show us the truth and nudge us along. I was a big Doubting Thomasina! Took a while to knock some of the stubbornness out of this head.

      Thank you for reading and commenting, Gregory. You are an encouragement to this sojourner.

    1. Good for you! Doesn’t matter when it happens but that it does happen. I was in my 30’s and so afraid. Now I wonder why I was so foolish. I certainly jumped into a lot of other things without any hesitation.

Thank you for joining the conversation
