Re: Verse reading–John 20:10-31 (day five)
John 20:28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Profound statement. Revolutionary words. Do they sound familiar? John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
What we need to remember is that Thomas spoke those words days after the Resurrection. The words in John 1:1 were penned some 60 years later.
There is great hope in understanding the sequence of these verses. Thomas, in the midst of doubt, fear, stress, tension, and grief is able to gain a new and supernaturally revealed insight into the nature and character of Jesus. God was working in Thomas’ heart and mind.
So, whatever the circumstances, tensions, doubts, and fears we face, the hope of God’s continued work in the human heart and mind are possible to the soul that would seek, ask and knock. (see Luke 11). Will you spend time in prayer and reading/searching the scriptures? God is at work in whatever and wherever!!
