Blessed are Those Who Believe
Blessed are those who believe. Poor doubting Thomas had to have proof that our Lord had indeed risen from the dead. “Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!” Jesus provides for him the necessary proof but offers the blessing to those of us who can believe without seeing like Thomas.
Our spiritual journey is a process. Sin has dire consequences and always keeps us from the best God has to offer.
Do you want to be blessed by the King? Accept His sacrifice. Accept His victory over death. Accept the fact that all authority has been given to Him. Trust and believe! The blessing is yours.
You might as well try to hear without ears or breathe without lungs, as to try to live a Christian life without the Spirit of God in your heart. –Dwight L. Moody
John 20:29 (NLT)
Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”
