Vital signs- Saturday, February 6th, 2021


“Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” 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 ‭20:24-29‬ ‭NKJV‬‬



The disciple Thomas’ faith failed after Jesus’ crucifixion.  He doubted the resurrection of Jesus despite the other disciples’ testimonies of His appearance.  Once Thomas saw Jesus, he repented and believed. Thomas’ faith was anchored in his own sight, but Jesus promises a blessing for those whose faith is anchored solely in the belief of Him.      

What doubts are you holding on to? When our hearts are anchored in Jesus’ power and His promises, we can trust that He is who He says He is and He will do what He says He will do.   

Father God, increase my faith so that I can trust Your sovereignty and power in my life. Lord, help me to believe and trust in all of Your promises even when I don’t see the evidence. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
