“Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.”

The risen Christ desires deeper relationship with us all. Let us walk faithfully as disciples of Jesus Christ. Let us study God’s Word for our lives.

Listen

After eight days his disciples were again in a house and Thomas was with them. Even though the doors were locked, Jesus entered and stood among them. He said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here. Look at my hands. Put your hand into my side. No more disbelief. Believe!”

John 20:26-27

Think

A week later, Thomas was with them. Jesus came and stood among them offering peace. Then he told Thomas to feel his wounds saying, “No more disbelief. Believe!”

There are so many times when we doubt Christ in our lives. Too often we demand a sign from God and long to see the wounds of Christ so that we, too, might believe in him. Think of a time in your life when you may have doubted God was real. What was going on in your life?

As in Thomas's case, God also shows up for us in the risen Christ and offers us peace. Christ offers us opportunities to see his presence and know he is real in our lives. How does Christ show up in your life today?

Pray

Christ, help me in my times of doubt. Allow me to believe that you are the risen Christ. Help me to see how you are present with me today. Allow me to share where I have seen you in my life. Amen.

“Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.”

John 20:21

Where is Christ sending you today? How are you called to share Christ’s peace with others?
