STAYING CONNECTED IN A TIME OF ISOLATION, Day 37

Practicing our faith through the times of the Coronavirus

Day 37, April 19, 2020 “Thomas ends up with faith”

Do you know the story of Thomas?
Once he walked with Jesus.
Unfortunately, he missed the first resurrection visit.
But there was a second chance.
The second chance came a week later.
Into the same locked room Jesus appeared.
Now Thomas was with the other disciples.
Great was the tension in that room

The Lord looked at Thomas.
How do you think Thomas felt at that moment?
Others had seen Jesus and believed he was alive.
Matthew saw and believed.
Andrew saw and believed.
Simon, also known as Peter, saw and believed.

Everyone it seemed believed.
Not Thomas.
Doubt kept him from believing.
Stating his doubts Thomas had said,

“Unless I see the nail marks, I will not believe.”
“Put your hands in my wounds,” said Jesus.

Will Thomas believe now?
In that moment, Thomas did believe.
The good news is he moved from doubt to belief.
Have we moved from doubt to belief?

Faith is being sure of what we hope for.
All who call on the Lord will be saved.
In a room with locked doors, Thomas believed.
Thomas said to Jesus, “My Lord and my God.”
His doubt disappeared and he worshiped the Lord

With the love of Christ, Wayne
