This sermon looks at Thomas’ doubt of Christ’s resurrection until seeing Jesus’ crucifixion scars. Jesus is glad to help people’s faith grow. Thomas is only doing what the disciples did earlier on the night of Jesus resurrection. Thomas’ doubts of belief resonate with many believers if they are honest about their spiritual journey.
This is part two of two sermons that look at the call. The reality is that God’s calling involves calling us to Himself, and secondly, calling us to something unique. The discovery of this calling is a wonderful adventure of faith, mystery, and journey.
Following the two examples of the children of Israel not having full faith in entering the promise land; Numbers 13-14; and Hebrews 3:12-13. We now see another example in Isaiah 40:29-31, that to meet our full potential in God; soar on wings as eagles, we will need a full trust in God that expectantly waits for God in the midst of difficult circumstances.
Faith in Christ is not a one time event at the new birth, but faith is a continual event that enables one to overcome the evils of this world and consistently share God’s love with others.
This sermon continues looking at our relationship with God. Due to our relationship with God we have the action of love toward others. This proves authenticity as a child of God. Belief in Jesus produces love for others, opportunity through prayer, and more. . .
