Why is it that the Sunday after the highest festival of the church year is about doubt? That’s because doubts creep into our lives. Thomas had the word of every disciple and he still claimed to know better. Stop doubting and believe is the call from our God. Jesus is alive!
Where can we find new life? Jesus takes time after his resurrection to lead his disciples into his word. He does this because he knows that he is leaving! He does this because his Spirit will use the Word to fan the flame of faith into a blaze! Where can we find new life? It is found in God’s Word – only in Jesus name.
When God thought about how he was going to tell the world about Jesus, how many different plans do you think he had to work with? The answer might surprise you!
April 13th is the day we celebrate Thomas Jefferson’s birthday. While the founding father of our nation loved books of all kinds, you might be surprised to see what he did to the Bible. What was it about the resurrection that caused such a strong reaction from Thomas Jefferson, Greeks, Romans, and even one of Jesus’ own disciples?! Nothing can change the truth that Jesus is alive, no doubt about it.
