Daily Fountain 2017 - Walking By Sight

Sunday April 23
1st Sunday After Easter

Bible Reading:     John 20: 24 - 31

Topic:         Walking By Sight

When Jesus first appeared to the disciples, Thomas Didymus was not there.

When told by the other disciples that they had seen the Lord, Thomas would not believe until he had personally seen Jesus and touched Him.

He wanted to walk by sight. Jesus satisfied his curiosity.

On the occasion of His next appearance, the door of where the disciples were was closed as in the first time, He appeared before them without any hindrance. Thomas personally saw Jesus - the evidence of resurrection standing before him - and believed.

Are you "a Thomas" of our time?
Are you one of those who demand miracles or visible signs as evidence of God's Power?
Jesus expects you to grow in faith which comes by hearing His Word (Rom. 10: 17)

"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Heb. 11: 1)

By proclaiming Jesus as His Lord and God Thomas was declaring his total submission to the Lordship of Jesus over his life.

Is Jesus the Lord of your own life?


Lord, help me to believe without seeing, in Jesus Name, Amen

Memory Verse:   John 20: 31

"But these are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing, ye might have life through His Name"
