Daniel Fast -Day 20, fri.

Day 20 – John chapter 20

 

Revealed

 

John 20:27(NIV)- Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”

 

I am always amazed at the mercy and grace of Jesus.  After all He had been through just 3 days earlier, when He appeared to His disciples, especially Thomas, He could have been impatient with their unbelief and said, “look, what’s wrong with you people”, but instead He was full of grace and mercy and met Thomas right where he was and helped him cross the line of faith.  Jesus wanted Thomas, as He does you and me, to believe in Him so much that He “proved” Himself to him by His wounds!  Isaiah says “by His wounds you will be healed”

 

Do you believe?  Jesus wants you to believe in Him.  Jesus wants a close relationship with you.  He will meet you right where you are.  Why have you been fasting these 20 days?  Has Jesus “revealed” Himself to you?  In what way or ways has He met you right where you are in your unbelief?

 

Don’t’ you find it interesting that right here at the end of our reading in John, some of His, so called, disciples are just now believing in Him?  As we approach the end of our fast, how do you find yourself believing?  What answers have you received?  How have you grown?  Have you been overwhelmed by a fresh sense of His grace or faithfulness?  Are you realizing anew the power of His resurrection?  Have you witnessed an eye-opening miracle firsthand in your own life?

 

What will you do with such grace and mercy revealed to you?  Is it for your belief or others’ belief?  Read 20: 20-21, 30-31 again.  But what will you do with this powerful discovery? How will you tell others about your encounter?

 

If you like, share your personal testimonies by posting a comment for all to read and believe, or email your story to stories@crossroadswalton.org

 

Our last chapter and post will be tomorrow, I will share what God has been teaching me at that time, until then…enjoy being blessed….
