Grace for you today !
Behold Jesus the Resurrection and Life & Receive His Blessing To Believe !
The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” John 20:25-27 NKJV
Generally when you are brought up in the same family , where love and sharing, faith and hope took the driver’s seat, to disagree with the majority of the family members of their collective experience and witness at any given point will certainly cause a huge rift.
But, in the scenario mentioned in the above verses , the Risen Lord Jesus once again appeared to them all, primarily for the sake of Thomas who wasn’t in their midst when He appeared earlier to them, so that the togetherness & unity might prevail among them.
It only shows the magnanimity and the steadfast love of the Lord Jesus despite human inconsistencies and unbelief.
It is in every human to believe what he or she cannot see naturally. Also, it is in every human to easily believe what he or she can naturally see.
However, it takes the Divine blessing to believe consistently what we normally or naturally cannot see. This is the blessing that rests on the New Creation who is the product of the Breath of the Risen Lord. Thomas missed out on this blessing in the first instance .
But , Praise Jesus ! Jesus still came seeking Thomas a second time . Thomas also got this blessing to believe during the second appearance .
My beloved, the world that we cannot see is more real than the world we see . The Lord is waiting to bless you to see the invisible today as you read this devotional & be blessed . Amen 🙏
Praise Jesus !
