““Why are you frightened?” he asked. “Why are your hearts filled with doubt? Look at My hands. Look at My feet. You can see that it’s really Me. Touch Me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don’t have bodies, as you see that I do.””
So many people throughout history have doubted the bodily resurrection of Jesus. Some even doubt His very existence. Interestingly, the doubters of this world are not alone. Even Jesus’ own disciples doubted that He had risen. They thought that when Jesus appeared to them after His resurrection He was a spirit or a ghost.
Yet after Jesus revealed that it was indeed Him, the doubts went away and instead, they were filled with such a conviction to share this news with others, even to the point of persecution and death. The testimony of these men lives on today, even after more than 2000 years. Yet it is not only the testimony of these men and the spreading of the gospel that have caused many to put their trust in the resurrected Jesus, it is the fact that Jesus continues to reveal Himself to doubters.
Once we experience the revelation of Jesus’ resurrection, we can do nothing but serve Him with our lives and tell others about this great news. Jesus is alive. He is real. He did rise from the dead, just as He said. He lives in us and we are living witnesses of His life changing grace and power. Go…. Tell the world HE IS ALIVE!
