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.”
t comes down to what do we believe without seeing and what do we need to be proven? Are you a Thomas or do you understand that Christ’s miracles manifest themselves every day? Can you open your eyes and see them or do you keep your eyes closed and deny them?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to be faithful at all times, even if I cannot see what you are doing. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
