Thomas’s twin

“Thomas, called the Twin…was not with them when Jesus came.” John 20:24 NKJV

The Bible says, “Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him, ‘We have seen the Lord.’ So he said to them, ‘Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails…and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.’ And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, ‘Peace to you!’ Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.’ And Thomas answered and said to Him, ‘My Lord and my God!’” (vv. 24-28 NKJV). Note the words “Thomas, called the Twin.” Do you know who the other twin is? You! Whoever you are, reading this page today, you are Thomas’s twin. Think about it: how often have you doubted God’s love, His goodness, His grace, His faithfulness, and His promises? So what’s the solution? An up-close-and-personal encounter with Jesus like Thomas had. It happens when you read His Word and a verse leaps off the page, causing you to exclaim, “My Lord and my God!” It happens in conversation with a friend when he or she shares such wisdom and insight that you find yourself saying, “My Lord and my God!” It happens when you pray like the psalmist, “Be good to your servant, that I may live and obey your word. Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions” (Psalm 119:17-18 NLT).
