#LA130: DAY 044 – DON’T BE A THOMAS

LAFAMLOGO

Frello F.R.E.S.H #LA Family! The Freshest family of God that consistently Learns and Applies the Word.

It’s Day 44 of our #LA130 program.

Today’s Reading: John 19-20

For the daily readings, please see here.

Today we learnt a very simple principle but as well very salient and powerful.

When Jesus resurrected, Thomas, when told the good news didn’t believe until he could see and touch the hole by the nails. John 20:24-25

  • Jesus had told his disciples already what would happen, but still dear Thomas didn’t believe when it happened until he saw a reason to. John 20:27-28. As a “believer”, we shouldn’t wait until we are given a reason to believe and trust God. He has never defaulted in any way and he’s not going to start now.
  • Anything out of faith is sin Romans 14:23, faith involves not seeing the substance yet of what has been said. And to please God faith is essential, it moves Him, that’s reason enough to believe.
  • Blessed is he that believes without seeing. John 20:29. For instance, you might be ‘feeling’ sick, and the Bible says in Isaiah 53:5, that we are healed.  Confess it believe it and you’ll be healed.
  • Don’t wait till the end comes before you believe in Jesus, when you then ‘see’ and ‘have’ reasons to, because then it’ll be so late.
  • Believe now while Grace is available

You have Learned! Go forth and Apply!

Food For Thought: Are you still waiting for a reason to believe?

Please deposit John 20:29 into the memory bank:

Jesus said unto him, ‘Thomas because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed.’

Stay #FRESH, #CHAP and #ALIVE!
