‘So the other disciples told Thomas, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in His hands and put my finger in His side, I will not believe it.”’(John 20 v 25)
After Jesus rose from the dead, He gave many convincing proofs He was alive, not least of all to “doubting” Thomas. Jesus came especially to Thomas and as a result he became a convinced believer.
Many people today do believe in Jesus but it’s also true that many have their doubts for all kinds of reasons.
Are you a believer or a doubter?
What would it take for you to believe? A supernatural experience? Hearing an audible voice?
Although some do claim to have had such experiences, for most of us it has to be a matter of faith.
Would you believe it if I told you that many believers experience a deep inner peace? They do!
Would you believe it if I told you it’s possible to know that all your sins can be forgiven? It is!
Would you believe it if I told you that you can have real assurance that you will go to heaven when you die? You can!
Would you believe it if I told you that God knows you, loves you and wants the best for your life? He does!
But if you still doubt; don’t take my word for it – why not read the bible for yourself.
