It’s often our doubts that keep us moving toward the truth.
This is Pastor Bryan Clark on MyBridge Radio. Have you ever heard of “Doubting Thomas?” I don’t care for that name myself. It seems to imply that if you doubt you end up on the naughty list. This causes us to stuff our doubts which isn’t good. It’s often our doubt that keeps us moving toward the truth.
When Jesus met with the disciples in hiding that first Easter night, He initiated showing them his hands and his side. The text tells us “then” the disciples rejoiced. Jesus wanted them to see the evidence.
For whatever reason, Thomas wasn’t with them that evening, so he struggled to believe Jesus was alive again until he could see what they saw.
A week after the first appearance Jesus appeared again, this time to Thomas as well. Jesus didn’t rebuke Thomas or turn him away. He invited him to touch his hands and side to see for himself that Jesus had resurrected from the dead. Thomas saw the evidence and believed.
This is not a game to God. Jesus genuinely cares about you. He wants to meet you in your doubt and lead you to the truth. Trust Jesus as the gentle shepherd with your doubts, He longs to lead you to the truth which will set you free.
This is Pastor Bryan Clark helping to connect you to the God who truly cares.
