At the beginning of April, Brenda Leyland challenged us to think about who would be our favorite person involved in the Easter story.
Of course Jesus is the person whom the story revolves around and were it not for Him there would be no story.
But the person I most relate to is Thomas (or Doubting Thomas). I understand Thomas' reluctance to believe what the other disciples said about Jesus being alive. Some times I feel the same way. I want to see and touch Jesus to help me believe that He really is there and cares about me. I talk to other believers who have seen Jesus working in their lives and I feel jealous because it seems like He doesn't show Himself to me in similar ways.
Even though I don't see Jesus in the ways I think He should show Himself to me, I still want to say with Thomas, "My Lord and my God!" Because that is who He is.
Be blessed this Easter season.
