Out of the Shadows
Read John 20:19-31
Then Jesus said to Thomas, “Put your fingers here;
See My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into
My side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to Him,
“My Lord and My God!”
John 20:27,28
      My small hometown had a movie theater, “The Majestic.” As a 10-year-old child, I had simple chores. After finishing the chores, my mother gave me money to see an afternoon movie and buy a coke and red hots.
      Leaving the movie, it was usually twilight. The walk home was a mile or so. About two blocks from home, there were houses with tall trees and large bushes near the sidewalk. The houses had lights, but they only made shadows on the street. Those shadows scared me as I looked to see what might be there. It seemed to take a long time to walk those two blocks. After I passed there, I saw our house down a side street. Mama always had it lit up. I grew calm as I left the shadows and walked the last block home.
     I don’t blame Thomas for doubting. He had fears of the Jews and had a hard time believing Jesus had risen from the dead. Jesus helped Thomas with his need. And then Jesus said, “Stop doubting and believe.”Our nation and world are going through a difficult time. But we know that
our Savior lives! Christ is risen! Whatever happens to each of us, especially if we feel afraid, the light of the world, Christ our Lord, is with us.We will come out of the shadows.

Prayer: Dear Father in heaven, we know you have given Your
only Son, Jesus Christ, for the salvation of the world! Help us to live in His
light! Amen.
