Reflection of the week

Posted in Faith

The sceptics challenge me with their reservations, asking niggling questions: Do you believe it is true that Jesus is alive? Where is the evidence?

Thomas was honest. He refused to say he understood when he didn't (John 20:25b). Can I be as honest in admitting my own limited understanding?

Blessed are those who have not seen, yet have come to believe. – John 20:29b

Jesus offered to show Thomas his wounded side, to touch and feel it. I don't have such tangible evidence to offer those who search for the truth; only the evidence of his living presence in my life.


Living, loving Lord, may the way I think, speak and act today witness to my belief in the unseen power of your love and grace. Amen.
