Jesus Appears to Thomas
Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Jesus appears to Thomas in the Flesh. Again, why do you suppose Christ appeared to His disciples without Thomas? We read in John 20: 24-29 above. In this Easter Season how can you deepen your relationship in Christ. What are your thoughts regarding Thomas. Jesus goes on to tell His disciples that how much more blessed are those that believe without seeing. Yet we await for Christ to appear again. Are you doubting your faith? Perhaps you are in a place of struggle that is” rocking ” your faith. Press into a deepening relationship. Poor out your heart to the Lord, Repent, Confess and study the word. This side of heaven is never the same, therefore press into the One that is now, was then and shall always be. He is your great God!!! Happy Easter!!!
Mid-Week Prayer: Lord, Lord, Lord where are you? Oh Lord I yearn to see you, but I still believe. It is not my circumstances that dictate my faith rather the truth in Thy word. For Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Oh Master, forgive my unbelief. I love Thee more and more!! Thank you Lord!! Amen!!
