John 20:29: Doubtless Faith

Frequently we refer to Thomas as “Doubting Thomas.” He is absent the first time Jesus appears in resurrected form to His disciples, and the testimony of ten friends cannot persuade this hesitant disciple. He wants proof for himself.

At times we, like Thomas, want proof of God’s work in our lives. We desire to live by sight, not by faith (Hebrews 11:1). Yet when our doubts overwhelm us, we can cling to the truth of God’s Word. He calls us blessed when we believe in Him—sight unseen.
