“Stop Doubting…!”

“Stop Doubting…!”(Mk.16:9-13).
“Doubting Thomas” has become a negative tag on anyone who expresses disbelief about something. This is because Thomas did not believe the others when they told him that the risen Lord Jesus Christ had appeared to them.
From our text for meditation it is obvious that it was not only Thomas who did not believe those who first saw the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
Upon his resurrection Jesus appeared first to Mary Magdalene. “She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.”
He later on “appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country. These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.”
Believing the resurrection of Jesus is as important as believing that he is the Son of God.
At first those who had been with him when they first heard the story did not believe that he had been raised. It was like a fairytale. These were not only eyewitnesses to Jesus’ teachings; they were “ear-witnesses” as they sat at his feet all through his brief but impactful ministry.
How much more difficult can it be to believe in the resurrection by a generation far removed from the time when Jesus was raised?
My friend, we walk by faith and not by sight. We believe that Jesus is alive!
Do you believe that Jesus is alive?
Prayer: Holy Spirit equip me with unwavering faith in Christ Jesus the Risen Lord. Amen!
Have a blessed day! Peace be with you!
Rev Babila Fochang.
