Andy focuses on the disciple Thomas, known throughout history for his “doubt,” and what his “fundamental disconnect” from the other 11 disciples can tell us about our own criteria for belief and trust.
And I just want to recognize anyone watching this who feels that the Christian faith has up until this point just seemed to pass them by and I don’t know why you doubt or, the things which tend to trouble you, whether it’s doubts about yourself or doubts about people in your life. Maybe you adopt skepticism as a matter of principle. Maybe there are things in your past, difficult upbringings, broken relationships that make it just really hard to trust in anything.
And as I close, I want to ask, “What is it that keeps you at arm’s length from Jesus today?”
Make it personal:
Have you asked your skeptical friends what keeps them from Jesus?
What is it that keeps you at arm’s length from Jesus today?
