When faith is crushed, when doubts assail and when defeat becomes our reality everything seems so hopeless, so permanent. Crucifixion seems so all encompassing, so final, so powerful! The really Good News is, in God’s world and for the Christian, death never has the last word! Jesus said, “Because I live you shall live also.” As powerful as crucifixion is, it holds no candle to the power of the resurrection!
Thomas was no stranger to resurrection; after all, he was no doubt with Jesus when Lazarus was raised from the dead. But he had also seen the crucifixion and with it all of his dreams died. Then Jesus appeared and said “Peace be with you.” Both the peace Jesus gave to Thomas and the evidence of the resurrection was exactly what Thomas needed to understand that resurrection is more permanent than death!
Just as Jesus gave Thomas what he needed to have faith, I believe that Jesus will give to our hearts and souls what we need! He will not only give us His peace, He will give us faith to believe that resurrection has the final word!
Can’t wait to celebrate the resurrection with you on Saturday and Sunday!
