Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But Thomas said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nailmarks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” 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.”
Do you ever feel like you were not in the room when Jesus came? Others feel Him and see Him, but you do not? Are you like Thomas and want proof? Do you need to see proof of Jesus’ existence before you will believe? Do not wait, believe that Jesus is with you and you will never feel alone. Blessed are you who have not seen and have believed.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I do believe. I have seen you and I have felt you with me and I praise your holy name. I need no proof Lord, I know you are here. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
