Lingering Doubts

Lingering Doubts

Thomas is often known as “doubting” Thomas, as if no other disciple has ever had doubts about Jesus’ resurrection. Remember that none of the disciples believed the women’s testimony initially; Peter and John even ran to the tomb to check out their story (Luke 24:9-11). When the disciples met Jesus in Galilee, some still doubted (Mt. 28:16-17). Jesus came to His doubting disciples and gave them the assurance they needed. What doubts keep you from fully trusting Jesus’ as your leader? What assurance do you need?

Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”—John 20:27-28

Prayer: Jesus, You know where doubts linger in my heart and head and keep me from following You. Meet me like You did those first disciples. Like them, let me move from doubt to confidence in You and in Your word to me. In Your name I pray, amen.
