“Then Jesus told Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”   John 20:27
Rev. Banks continued his series on Finding Jesus with message titled By Faith and scripture text taken from John.
We were showed an artist interpretation of Jesus and Thomas as he felt the nail scared hands and side.  We are sometimes scornful of Thomas, giving him the nickname “doubting Thomas.” But he is not unlike many of us.  He needed to touch Jesus’ wounds in order for his faith to take root and grow.  Jesus knows what we need in order for our faith to bloom.
