Believe by Faith
And, not by sight!
Your belief in the Lord Jesus Christ is based on faith because you cannot see or touch Him.
Thomas did not believe the report of the other disciples that Jesus was raised from the grave. He wanted to see Christ for himself to touched the nail prints in His hands.
Christ did not condemn Thomas. He returned to prove Himself to Thomas.
Jesus told him that even though he would not believe because he could not see there is a blessed generation who will believe in Him in spite of the fact that they will not be able to see or touch Him.
My friend, we are that blessed generation because we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and His resurrection by faith.
We are therefore rewarded with His love, grace, and mercy.
Hallelujah! Thank you, Lord!
The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 1:14)
