HOPE FOR TODAY:
Tell us your story again! Show us your idea! Let us see for ourselves!
Friends, our Christian walk is about faith in God, not proof for the eye, but faith for the heart! When we are asked to prove God’s existence, God’s power, God’s love, or the many truths that He has spoken the answer to those that ask is found in our FAITH. Oh did I fail to mention that there will always be someone that doubts and demands that we prove it before they will believe? Thomas was much the same, as we read,
“Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them,
“Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” John 20:24, 25
BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO BELIEVE WITHOUT SEEING…
John chapter 20 continues on to read in verse 29 the reply that Jesus had to all regarding this doubting, as we read,
“Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” John 20:29
Friends there is only one answer that shall be given to these doubters, and that answer is FAITH! Faith is the only answer that is sufficient, and the only answer that is necessary. As it is written,
“Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:38
No need for long drawn out arguments or debates that many doubters will try to bait us into, our faith in God is all that we need to show them, to win them, and to win their soul to Jesus. Let them ask about our faith, why we believe, what it is that convinces us that Jesus lives, and lives in us, through us, and with us every day!
Let them ask how to get faith, how to increase their faith, or how to navigate through God’s word to learn more about Jesus. Faith in Jesus is the only way!
