John 20:29 reads, “. . . Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”
The other readings for today can be found here, but before you head over there, remember that we are the lucky ones.
Some may wish to have lived in the times of Christ, but are we that strong. Are we able to follow the ‘new guy’ with all our hearts, all our souls and all our minds. Or would we be standing on the sideline quietly watching as Christ was put to death?
Those who were living good lives, not rocking the boat, but not taking action to follow Our Lord. Where are they now? I wonder where I would have been. Where would you have been? Quien Sabe?
We don’t have the benefit of “seeing”. We still have to make that decision – Do we stand on the sideline?
But, we have the benefit of years of Christian influence, teachings and traditions. We are the lucky ones. Though we have not seen, We Believe.
