I can relate to Thomas. If I had not been present with the other disciples to see Jesus, I would have a hard time believing what they said to be true. I would want to see proof that Jesus was raised from the dead if I had seen him crucified just a few days ago.
There have been times in my faith journey when I have felt closer and further away from God. When I feel further away from God I look for evidence that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I remember the ways that God has changed my life. I look at the lives of others and see the way that God’s kingdom is coming on the earth. I read the scriptures to remind myself of the good news.
I experience proof of Jesus resurrection in the lives of those who are around me. We are all on the journey of knowing, loving and serving God together.
