Who is Jesus?

Do you remember Jesus’ disciple, “doubting” Thomas? Here was his response to Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and appearance to the twelve and then Jesus’ subsequent response to Thomas:

 Thomas replied to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen Me? Blessed are the people who have not seen and yet have believed.” -John 20:28-29

That is now our appropriate response to Jesus – “My LORD and my GOD!” Jesus Christ, because He is Lord and God, did not correct Thomas’ appropriate response. Rather, He said we who do not see Jesus’ hands and side and yet believe are blessed. Why are we blessed? We are blessed because we are believing in the Lord and God of the universe – the only One who can take away our sins and save us from eternal death. Praise God for the resurrection! We have no hope, no victory and no salvation apart from Him!

Happy resurrection day, everyone!
