John 20:29 Have you believed because you have seen me?
These are the words Jesus spoke to Thomas who was not around
when the Risen Christ appeared to the other disciples,
and found it hard to grasp and believe that Jesus had risen.
Jesus went on to say that
“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”
Jesus was anticipating the position all of us find ourselves in
who follow his teaching today.
It is still hard for many to grasp the resurrection of Jesus.
Even the most ardent believers among us have doubted if we are honest.
We should not be afraid of our doubts and questions,
they are healthy, but neither should we be afraid to dare to believe.
Love, in the pure form that Jesus revealed, is capable of any miracle.
THE LORD IS RISEN. ALLELUIA! ALLELUIA!
HE IS RISEN INDEED. ALLELUIA!
