Jesus said to Thomas... “Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to Jesus, “My Lord and my God.” John 20v27

Over Easter we’ve been remembering the death of Jesus and His resurrection.

If you are not a believer you may wonder why all the fuss is made about Jesus. I used to think like that.

Thomas wasn’t with the other disciples when Jesus first appeared to them and found it hard to believe He was alive.

Later Jesus came to reveal Himself especially to Thomas and he believed. Jesus then said; “Because you have seen me you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

I used to have my doubts about Jesus but I have since discovered He really is alive and can be known in a personal way. I can testify to having received many blessings from “my Lord and my God.” What about you?

Perhaps you are full of doubts and find it hard to believe. If so, why not take the time to find out what the fuss is about?

Why not have a read through one of the gospels and ask Jesus to reveal Himself to you?

Perhaps it’s time for you to stop doubting, believe Jesus is alive and receive God’s blessing in your life.

You’re worth it.
