Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us praise our Lord and forget not all His benefits. His grace is new every day.
Word: Jesus appears to Thomas – John 20: 26-29 – A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 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.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Thought: In the hands of Jesus there is certainty! There is providence! There is majesty! The hands of Jesus are saving hands. The Bible describes every type of sin but declares that the Lord delivers from them all. His saving hands are secure hands. Of all who come to Him He said, “I will give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand”. The hands of Jesus are able to hold secure for time and eternity all that we commit to Him. – Adapted from Streams in the desert, Mrs. Charles Cowman, Forty-first printing, September 1982.
