I Don't See It

One of the surprising things Jesus did  on Easter was how He greeted His friends after He arose from the dead. He didn't go in to a great sermon or an explanation about what happened. He simply said, Peace. We tend to miss this in our studies. We spend time on other details. We grin at Thomas' reaction of Jesus showing up just after he had said he wouldn't believe unless he touched Christ's wounds.

I'm sure Jesus was pleased that His doubting friend fell to his knees proclaiming Jesus Lord. Jesus said it was greater to believe and to have not seen. The writer of Hebrews teaches on this same aspect of faith.

What do you have faith or hope in? Is it seen or not seen?
Jesus said those with "blind faith" in Him are blessed.
If someone ever ask you to show them the evidence of Christ tell them to look at your believing heart. Allow His light to shine in your life - the darkness will lose every time.
