“Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”” John 20:29 (NIV)
These are words spoken by Jesus Christ to His disciple called Thomas. We may remember that when Jesus first appeared to His disciples after he arose from the dead Thomas was not with them. When Thomas was told, he did not believe that Jesus was alive. He wouldn’t believe unless he could see for himself. The next time that Jesus appeared to them Thomas was there and then he believed. We’ve chosen this verse because it has a blessing promised for us. Yes, Jesus promised a blessing for all who have believed in Him even though we were not there and we’ve never seen Jesus with our own eyes. My friend, if you have believed in Him and if you believe that He is living and is praying for you in heaven today he says you are blessed. Let’s thank Him for His blessings today.
