Seeing Your Life Through the lens of the Gospels - John 20:19-31

Read 503 Times
1 ‘Peace be with you’ was the greeting of Jesus on meeting his frightened apostles. Who has come to you bringing peace at times when you were frightened? For whom have you been an agent of peace?

2 Thomas, doubting and questioning, is possibly a person with whom we can identify. What part have doubting and questioning played on your faith journey? How has your faith been strengthened by such moments?

3 Note the way Jesus dealt with Thomas. He did not give out because he doubted. He took him where he was and led him along to see the truth of his resurrection. Who has been that kind of a teacher for you, gently taking you where you were and leading you on to a deeper knowledge of some truth about life? For whom have you been that kind of teacher?

4 ‘Blessed are they who have not seen and yet believed’. That requires great trust. Perhaps you have had the experience being trusted without of having had to prove every step along the way. What was it like to be trusted in that way? Who have you been able to trust in a similar manner?
