Resurrection Grace to Answer Our Doubt
Passage: John 20:24–20:29
The apostle Thomas refused to believe that Jesus had risen from the grave, until he could see him and touch him. Jesus mercifully grants his request, appearing to him personally and inviting him to touch his nail-scarred hands. In Thomas's life-changing encounter with the risen Jesus, we learn some important lessons about doubt in our own lives, and how Jesus invites us to bring our uncertainty to him and ask him to overcome our hesitations.
