Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve,
was not with them when Jesus came.
So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
But Thomas said to them,
“Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands
and put my finger into the nailmarks
and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
Now a week later his disciples were again inside
and Thomas was with them.
Jesus came, although the doors were locked,
and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.”
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands,
and bring your hand and put it into my side,
and do not be unbelieving, but believe.”
Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”
When was the last time you had put your trust to God?
Many times we say we are Christians, Catholic specifically. Using it in any personal information documents we sign. We even use that in our social media profiles. But then, how far can we say that we are Christians?
It always occurs to us that we can sin, we doubt, because nobody is there to see what we are doing or what are we even thinking. We always need a proof to believe on almost everything. Friends, it is for human actions only that we need proof. God sees everything and knows everything about each one of His children.
Let us be firm on saying that we are Christians. Christ believers. And with that, the very first to believe that God is indeed with us. Seeing Christ in every little thing that is moving and every little thing that happens in our life. Happy Wednesday believer! :)
