John 20:24-28
24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, ‘We have seen the Lord!’
But he said to them, ‘Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.’
26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ 27 Then he said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.’
28 Thomas said to him, ‘My Lord and my God!’

Uncertainty can rob us of peace. Jesus wants us to be secure in our relationship with him – he knows we will have our doubts but rather than chastising us, if we bring our doubts to him meets and answers them.

Offer your doubts to Jesus as part of your worship today and be open to hear and see his response. When he responds, join with Thomas in declaring him as Lord and God!
