Reflections for April 27, 2014

John 20:19–31

As Jesus continues to appear to his disciples and friends, someone is missing – Thomas. He had heard the message of Jesus’ resurrection, but it was the experience of seeing and the offer to touch the risen Christ that helped him fully believe. How different is this experience from your own? Is hearing a lesson, reading it, or completing it going to help you understand it? There are many ways to experience the risen Christ, and we should be open to all the ways Christ is around us and working in the world today.

This week – experience the risen Christ in a tangible way by putting your faith into action. Volunteer at your church or a local ministry with the poor or reach out to someone in your community who could really use a helping hand.
