Scripture: John 20:24–20:29
What Thomas Missed
What did Thomas miss? Faith that put down roots (24-25)
- He refused to hope
- He refused to gather with those who do
- He had become cynical
What Thomas Found: faith rooted in fact (26-29)
- Thomas, like the others, finds:
- An empty tomb
- Discarded grave clothes
- The eyewitness testimony of many others
- And of course...
- The risen and victorious Christ, literally in the flesh (27)
Take Home Idea: Like Thomas, we should put down roots in the person of Jesus and the fact of his resurrection so that we will have a faith that can survive the trials of life.
