Faith, Not Sight

Most Christians are familiar with the story of Thomas, forever known as Doubting Thomas.  He refused to believe in Jesus' resurrection until he saw the scars in Jesus' hands and side.

Jesus commends future Christians who will believe without the benefit of actually seeing Jesus.  We follow a man based on events that happened 2,000 years ago.  We choose to believe the testimony of those who have written about the life of Jesus.

This doesn't mean that our faith is without reason.  Faith without reason is believing something like that trees get up and walk around at night and return to their spot just before anyone sees them.  There is reason to believe in everything that is recorded in the Bible and there is reason to trust in Jesus.

While we have evidence to believe what we believe - the lives that have been changed by Jesus are our biggest proof - we will never have completely concrete evidence.  We don't have the benefit of seeing Jesus after His resurrection.  And so we must have faith and believe the accounts that are handed down to us in the Bible.
