Sermon Recap: “He Appeared to me in my Doubt.”

The disciples had an amazing day with Jesus that first Easter Sunday.  They see Jesus is alive.  They are commissioned to continue his work.  And they receive the Holy Spirit.  This is an incredible day.

But Thomas missed it.  He wasn’t there. Thomas also didn’t believe it.  He did not believe the testimony of his friends.  Absent Thomas becomes Doubting Thomas.

 And yet everything works out.  Jesus appears to Thomas in his doubt.  In the midst of his doubt Thomas meets Jesus.  But Thomas had to persist meeting with God’s people to see Jesus.  And God’s people had to continue to welcome doubting Thomas.
