Have you ever been called a Doubting Thomas? This disciple’s doubt is well documented. But think about it…if someone told you that your pastor had come back from the dead, wouldn’t you want some proof? How did Jesus handle his doubt? Not by shaming him for his ‘lack of faith,’ but rather by inviting him to physically examine His wounds. Jesus understands our periodic struggles to have faith in things that lie beyond our experience.
Questions for further thought:
1. What do you think of Doubting Thomas? Would you have reacted differently if you had been in his shoes?
2. How do you picture Jesus reacting to your questions/doubts?
Challenge: It’s easy to focus on what is going wrong in our lives and ignore our everyday wins. Tonight, as your head hits the pillow, take a few minutes to reflect on where you and Jesus won together!
