I’ve been thinking about some stuff lately…like, how cool would it have been when to be around when Jesus was here on earth? Think about it; being there when he was preaching the Sermon on the Mount, watching the miracles in person, and see the living God do his thing. It would have been crazy seeing and experiencing all of that! I would have been a set believer then…how could you doubt?
But, we live in the modern world. There is war, differences in religions, and the thought that we must be P.C. all the time. We don’t have that guy that came to live with us, teach us, and mentor us. But, we have the Word and the fact that Jesus is still living within us. How cool is that?! He can be our best friend, our love, everything.
John 20:29 says, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” I think this is such an important verse to know. It’s right after Jesus rises from the grave, and Thomas won’t believe until he sees and places his hands on the marks from the nails. Jesus is really encouraging when it comes to the people who still believe he was raised, even though they haven’t seen him.
I love this! It’s like, Jesus knew there would be doubters and skeptics in the world. Jesus was taking us into account. I love that Jesus was so cool and down-to-earth about everything. Jesus was an actually man…he was human; the thing is that he resisted sin. He was like no other human EVER. Jesus was so cool…I can’t get over that! I absolutely love it.
Keep on staying in faith, and even if you doubt know that Jesus loves you. I’ll keep that in mind, too. Feel free to leave opinions, questions, anything. I’ll respond!
