Jesus said to him, “ Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:30)
No effort to discredit the resurrection (and there have been many a furious effort) has succeeded in dampening the fervor of the faithful, even those of us who have not seen, yet believed. We are that people, a holy nation whom the Lord has drawn by His Spirit, and we stand out as bright and shining stars against a backdrop of unbelief and darkness in the world. We have not seen Jesus face to face, but we know we will. So, we serve Him who we cannot see as though we do. While today we see as in a mirror in a poorly-lit room, one day we will see Him face to face. This we know, because we have received the testimony of the fathers of our faith and the scriptures. By that faith we stand, we believe, and one day we'll see. Amen.
Let's Pray - Dear Lord, thank You for the faith given to me by the Holy Spirit. I see You clearly with the eyes of faith, and I will follow You wherever You lead. In Jesus, amen.
