“I was blind, but now I see!” (John 9:25b NIV).
Jesus appeared before Mary Magdalene, but she did not know that it was He. Her eyes were opened when He called her by name.
She told the disciples, “I have seen the Lord.” They did not believe her because they had not seen Him.
Jesus joined Cleopas and Simon on the road to Emmaus, but He did not reveal himself to them. Their eyes were opened when Jesus broke bread with them.
Poor Thomas is known throughout history as doubting. In those days, I would have been that doubting person.
Thankfully, we have God’s Word to open our eyes and hearts. We have our LWML sisters to Engage, Encourage, and Equip us to Serve the Lord with Gladness. May our hearts burn within us as the scriptures are opened to us, and we share the Good News of Christ’s abundant love and saving grace.
He Is Risen. He Is Risen, Indeed! Alleluia!
