"Thomas" - John 20:24-29 - Pastor Bruce Lerum
“Unless I see the nail marks…” Thomas said.
We want to make “it” all about us.
John 20:25 But [Thomas] said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
We are not able to see what Thomas or the others saw.
We do, however, have the advantage of hindsight.
John 20:29 Then Jesus told [Thomas], “Because you have seen me, you have believed.”
Jesus commands us to stop doubting AND believe!
Faith removes all doubt.
John 20:27 Then [Jesus] said to Thomas, “…Stop doubting and believe.”
