Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.” Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”
Who of us is not like Thomas at times? Show me the proof! Since Jesus is not standing before us with all of His wounds we must ponder and struggle to come to grips with what is said to have happened. The experience so changed the apostles that they went from hiding over fear that they would be killed…to boldly preaching that Jesus was alive…even though most were eventually martyred for saying so. The apostles realized that love always wins in the end. In times of death…New Life is promised. Do you believe that? How do you live it?
