Your weekly love note from God!
John 20:27-29 Then he said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.’ Thomas answered him, ‘My Lord and my God!’ Jesus said to him, ‘Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.’
Often people read this story as a story of judgement on “Doubting Thomas.” But my Son offered this proof to his beloved brother because he knew how much pain must be pressing in on Thomas, how hurt he was at losing someone he loved so much. And he also knew how much more he was asking of you, that you believe even when he is not standing there with you in physical form. So today I ask you to close your eyes and imagine your brother Jesus with an arm of comfort around you, encouraging you and showing you support and love. You deserve to know the love of your brother Jesus.
