2nd Sunday of Easter
On this day we are asked to believe something supernatural – that Jesus rose from the dead. While it is hard to believe, we have come today because we do believe. However, there was a lot of doubt at the time of Jesus and there remains doubt for us.
Today’s story is about Thomas, one of the disciples, who wanted to believe and wanted to be sure. We learn that the way to understand God is through Jesus himself. Thomas was a real seeker and we like Thomas need to also struggle with our own doubts to believe. Become a sincere seeker. Thomas’ faith became strong and vibrant.
Jesus invited Thomas to a new stage of faith. God is calling us to belief in the Living God and enter into a new stage of faith.
