They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.”
Are you a doubting Thomas? Do you believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God? If you do then you should take it literally. The Bible is also an historical document, but the lessons are transcendent and have as much power today. Faith is something that is gifted to us by God, it breaks down the barriers of earthly knowledge and challenges you to trust in the unseen. Pray that God will increase your faith, trust in God, and trust that his word will change your life.
