God, my savior, is real



Eight days after uttering those words of doubt, the Lord appears again to the eleven. This time Thomas is there. The moment our all-knowing Lord appears, He greets them, then singled out Thomas and said to him:

“Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.” (John 20:27)

Immediately, Thomas, convicted and ashamed, cries out, “My Lord and my God” (v. 28). Thomas was a changed man. He had seen something he had never seen before. He realized who Jesus was, and he realized His great power.

What a powerful thing it is when our eyes are opened to His Word and we feel the Word of God deep in our convicted soul. It’s a great hour when we decided to fall in step with His Word and obey the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 6:3-5; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:37-38, 41; 1 Peter 3:20-21) of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Romans 6:17). 

It is then that God becomes real in our souls. We look forward to exploring these thoughts more fully with you this coming Lord’s Day. Please come join us.

Until then, God bless. Lord’s Day Worship is at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at 728 S.E. 12th St. Moore.
