Stop Doubting and Believe!
Today’s message was focused on Thomas in John 20:18-29. Thomas is the one who would only believe that Yeshua had risen after he saw and touched the nail prints and His wounded side. Do we find ourselves to be like Thomas? Must we first see before we believe? Pastor Jonathan encouraged us first to believe and not to doubt. Sometimes we don’t want to believe it because we might’ve been disappointed in the past. But “God does not lie; if He said it, He would do it!” Sometimes it’s our interpretation of how things should unfold, or sometimes we give up too early.
Today’s message is a reminder that “blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” We don’t have to wait for lightning to strike before we believe Him. We should believe based on His track record and because of who He is. Listen to this message to start the year right. Let’s continue to put our trust in the One who is faithful and does not lie.
